Jeannie Mai’s Mantra Is Perfect for Anyone Struggling in a Relationship Right Now

August 11, 2018

Popping the champagne: 41-year-old The Real talk show host Jeannie Mai recently announced her engagement to rapper Jeezy. While she’s ecstatic about the upcoming nuptials, Mai credits her common mantras with helping her build the strong, healthy relationship she has now.Mai shared her personal mantra with Health and explained how her change of heart has paid off in her love life.

“My mantra is, if you want to be in love, lose the fear. If you want to stay in love, lose yourself,” Mai said.

Mai explained that she first encountered this mantra in motivational author Cleo Wade’s book Heart Talks, and it changed her perspective on relationships.

“The reason it’s so important to me is because I didn’t know it until later in life. You know, you experience love through high school and in your 20s and 30s, but as you move into a more mature type of love, you realize that real love is about sacrifice and selflessness,” she says.” It’s about focusing on how to make the other person feel whole and safe.”

Mai announced her engagement on Instagram in early April, three years after her 2017 split from actor ex-husband Freddy Harteis, who had been together with Mai since 2007, and in an emotional episode of “The Real,” she explained that her divorce was “one of the most traumatic things that could have happened “.

But she quickly followed up with a statement saying that while she was bored with her marriage, she never gave up on love.

“It’s not about winning an argument or being at the forefront or having all the answers,” Mai said.” So, that’s the best quote I believe in and attribute where I am today to being happily engaged.”
