It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is. •Hermann Hesse Intimate
To live without love is to not live at all and shrivels the soul, and we learn nothing.
But there are ways to be in relationship with others that is positive and uplifting to yourself and to the other, even if the relationship doesn't last forever. In love relationships we have much to learn from the other.
The important people in our lives (actually all people in our lives) are really mirrors. We draw to us those who will help us learn about ourselves. Each time we are presented with a challenge in a relationship, we are really being presented with an 'opportunity' to look inside ourselves to see what about us it is that needs working on, so that we may grow.
these are fab quotes... just think about some of them.... God is what makes most relationships work, as our flesh tells us other wise.
