“When we’re incomplete, we’re always searching

for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few

months of a relationship, we find that we’re still unfulfilled, we blame

our partners and take up with somebody more promising. This can go on

and on until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our

lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment. Nobody else can

provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously

and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.”

  1. 👏 Very true! It truly is an individual decision: like they say, “Be the hero of your own story.” Thanks for the reminder!

  2. This is so true. Another aspect I’ve learned is most people when their relationship fails or they have a partner that cheats, they forget to considered the issue being of either party… for instance sometimes when your partner cheats and you sit there thinking “what’s wrong with me” or “I’m not good enough”, the truth is it’s not always you. Sometimes it has nothing to do with who, how or what you are and everything to do with themselves.

    Really I feel shame that I am thinking about that Backstreet Boy band song.
