Today’s episode explores ten common interpersonal myths. These myths can prevent us from being as effective in relationships as we like.

Some of these myths are about how we “should” be or how others “should” be. Some of these myths are about conflict, or about whether it’s ok to assert our need or say no.

Often we learn these myths from our families when we are young, and it’s helpful to recognize and name them so they don’t dictate what we do in relationships.

In this episode, we unpack each myth: where they come from, and ways to challenge them so you can improve your interpersonal skills.
