Love Is Supposed To Hurt

Therapist Mark E. Smith says: Love is Mother Nature’s tool to force you to go back and work on unresolved issues from your childhood.

I wished that Christian faith healed emotional wounds and made people emotionally healthier but it’s just not true. Your sincere Christian faith is not going to erase the wounds of your childhood.

The cure is sticking in your marriage and not vilifying or scapegoating your spouse, but working hard in therapy… When people come in and present themselves as a victim, the therapist’s main order of business is challenging how they think and shifting the focus away from the spouse to the real problem, the family of origin.

We pick the right person so that we can re-enact the unresolved issues of our childhood.

When new people meet, there’s anywhere from two to seven years of grace where everything is fun and easy.
