Statistics show about half of first marriages end in divorce—which is high.
But guess what?
With second marriages, the divorce rate increases – rather than decreases – to a whopping 60 percent.
Often we have relationship patterns so incredibly ingrained in us that we have a tough time letting go of our learned and limiting behaviors.
We need to embrace the miracle powers of clarity and insights in order for bad love patterns to be broken.
In my Oprah recommended relationship book, “Prince Harming Syndrome” I give a range of insight awakening tools – to help people start to make new, wiser love choices.
One of my core philosophies for finding happily ever after love after enduring failed love:
In particular, you gotta think like a lion tamer about the pain of heartbreak.
Here’s a quickie true lion tamer story to explain what I mean.
Graham Thomas Chipperfield, a star lion tamer with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, got bitten by Sheba, one of his 500-pound lionesses.
It didn’t seem fair. After all, Chipperfield was merely trying to save Sheba – by stopping her from being hurt by an attacking lion.
It took a while before the mauled Chipperfield healed from his injuries.
During this time, Chipperfield made a key choice. He decided to try to understand what happened to him -by seeing things from Sheba’s point of view.
Chipperfield mulled over how he got mauled over.
Eventually he recognized how lions tend to think of the trainer as another lion.
Ultimately, Chipperfield figured out that Sheba misunderstood why he bounded into the cage to help her. Sheba unfortunately assumed Chipperfield wanted to join in on the fight, too. So Sheba saw Chipperfield as an enemy – and attacked him by mistake.
Did Chipperfield sit around blaming Sheba for her inaccurate thinking?
Did Chipperfield waste his time cussing out Sheba for hurting him—when he was only there to help her?
Instead, Chipperfield took the time to understand what the heck Sheba was thinking.
As a result, he could better avoid being bitten ever again!
Plus, most importantly, Chipperfield made sure to take the time for this analysis – before he stepped into any lion’s cage ever again.
Want to make sure you don’t get chomped upon again in your next relationship?
If so, then you must take time to gain insights into why you got chomped upon in past relationship(s)!
