Almost all of us create a personal “myth of lost love” to explain why love has hurt us in the past. Unexamined, this powerful myth leads to painful relationships with people who aren’t good for us.

The most common way we sabotage new love possibilities is through what I call the Wave of Distancing (or simply, the Wave). The Wave occurs when we unconsciously push a caring and available person away by inwardly diminishing his or her worth. Our lack of training in the phenomenon of the Wave has led to the loss of countless relationships.
