I hear this all the time. I want to tell everybody right here, right now, that this is completely false!! In fact, the opposite is true. People change all the time. It’s actually the one thing we can count on in life. I mean really, most of you wouldn’t be reading this right now if one or both of you hadn’t changed – changed how you feel about each other, changed what you wanted out of life, changed how you treat each other. People change throughout their lives. The question is how motivated are you to change for the better? To change in a way that you grow together instead of apart? And do you know how?
The second part of this myth is that “people will always go back to old habits.” Now the tough part of this myth is that there is a small element of truth here. It is true that people will return to old habits – if they don’t learn a new way to do things and then put those new skills into action. But, the real question here is “Can people permanently change?” And the answer to that question is: Absolutely!
Yet one of the biggest mistakes people make is that while they may have good intentions to make positive change(s), they don’t actually follow through on learning how to change or learning how to make those changes permanent. This is why they fall back into old patterns of behavior.
Our StrongMarriageNow System is specifically designed with that in mind – to help people to learn how to change, and how to make those changes permanent. That’s why we created our System for people just like you!
