____3. Uncomfortable feelings are bad and destructive.

____4. Being emotional means being out of control.

____5. All painful emotions are a result of a bad attitude.

____6. If others don’t approve of how I am feeling, I obviously shouldn’t feel the way that I do.

____7. Other people are the best judge of how I am feeling.

____8. Painful emotions are not really important and should be ignored.

Can you think of any other myths?

Wow, I think Disney used the above list for their animated movie 'Inside Out', a movie we watched last night on Netflix.

Indexing (passive investing) will only bring you average returns.

Yea, I get the math part of making more in the market than our low mortgage rates but really wonder how many do put that "extra" money in the market?

Full disclosure I still have a mortgage but for piece of mind reasons would prefer not to at ER time. Cheers.

heh heh heh - seemed like a good idea at the time. Pun intended. Don't guess which is which. I mean otherwise I wouldn't whine.
Yes my investments have over time returned more than my 4% mortgage is but it was more about having the piece of mind of not having a mortgage at ER. I digress.
