Your partner (or your potential partner) is on their own journey.
It’s so tempting to make their behavior all about yourself, but it’s totally unrelated.
No one is on this planet to respect you or to disrespect you.
No one is here to make you feel good or to make you feel bad.
Sometimes those are side effects but avoiding the deeper Truth will always result in suffering.
Life is one big grey area, it’s not supposed to be neatly packaged into cute little boxes.
If you’re having an experience, it’s an opportunity. If you’re judging your experience, you’re rejecting the opportunity.
No one said growth is painless, because summoning additional courage shows you where you’ve been betraying yourself.
That’s the really painful part, is seeing how we’ve been fooling ourselves for so many decades.
But, it’s OK. Forgiveness is always an option.
Change is normal.
Hurt is temporary.
As life becomes bigger and bigger, we must simplify and simplify.
The temptations toward evaluation are soooo 2009 ???
Stop evaluating, to really enjoy the ride.
