You drive me nuts

So I was listening to Oprah the other day (like ya do) and she was saying how she once had a guest on by the name of Harville Hendrix who talked about how you are drawn to people who represent the healing of both of your parents. She went on to say that she and Stedman would never have made it had it not been for this particular concept hitting home.

I don’t know about you, but for me, this is huge. I see it as plain as day. Relationships are hard. Really hard. Having a bad one is easy, you just let time take its toll and watch it crumble of its own dead weight. But having a good one is grueling.

We can easily see this as the other one’s fault. But in reality, it’s all you. They’re just reflecting back the stuff from your past that hasn’t been healed yet. They’re giving you a divine opportunity to see it, heal it, and transcend it.

Now we can see relationships as the true spiritual partnerships they have the potential to be.

I just wish she’d stop stealing the covers:)
