Ariadne’s Thread, the Minotaur and the relationship-saving metaphor of saving the hero

Greek mythology is a rather odd place to be extracting modern-day how-to advice. No wonder. People don’t seem to be dueling centaurs, giants, or chimeras anymore, but they definitely often duel stress, insecurities, and trauma, which resemble monsters just as much. Legends have survived the test of time due to their immensely powerful symbolism towards the struggles, successes, plights, and joys of humankind, and they shall do so, until the end of written or spoken word.
