thank you for articulating something i have been, and still am, learning slowly day by day… posting it on my blog so that i can come back to it as many times as i need to.
“I came to realize this: we think we go from partner to partner because there will be someone “better” for us. In reality, no one is better for us, we just get better for ourselves.
And this: relationships work when we sacrifice negative beliefs about ourselves, and in that process we become the best thing that’s ever happened to anyone.
And this: a successful marriage is about two people engaged and dedicated to overcoming selfishness–for the rest of their lives.”
