There are few things greater than feeling like you are fully supported in this world. Having a partner you can depend on to love you in good times and bad is like a delicious icing on a beautiful life cupcake. This does not mean that you should have to depend on anyone to create your happiness for you. On the contrary, in a true partnership you are pushing each other to be better, healing each other when you fall, and reminding each other how important and valuable their contribution in this world is (especially if they have forgotten).
When you heal a person you love, you are also healing yourself. The compassion in you meets their compassion. This can become an unstoppable force for good. Love meets love and heart meets heart … We are mirrors.
