Murphy said, “When it comes to love, many of us have consumed far too many Disney movies! Reality is often quite different though, especially in today’s unprecedented circumstances. Over the last few months, many people have lost loved ones—even their moms. Some are sheltering all alone, others can’t get a moment to themselves.”
In this ILTV episode, host Keri Murphy spoke with a licensed psychotherapist, Montrella Cowan. She helps people heal through loss and traumas so they can love again.
This inspiring interview shares why Montrella, whose past is not the fairytale story most people hope for, still believes in love. Love for significant others, friends, and family.
Murphy stated, “There isn’t a more perfect time to gain insight into what makes a relationship work and how to create a rock-solid foundation for love than Mother’s Day weekend…the holiday of unconditional motherly love.”
Cowan teaches that people need to follow these steps to find love:
- Believe that love is real and possible.No one’s story is a fairytale, but anyone can find and maintain love with family, friends, and spouses.
- Take a look in the mirror. Understanding oneself is such an important part of setting up a healthy base for any relationship.
- Develop your communication skills. People communicate in different ways and want to be heard in different ways.
- Heal the past. If people don’t heal from their past hurts, they are brought into future relationships and that is not a strong base to start a partnership.
