This kind of self-reflection can be
frightening. Marriages dissolve when
both partners aren’t willing to put themselves in the crucible of self
discovery. Marriages also dissolve when
neither partner is willing to do the work.
Occasionally, marriages will still dissolve when both partners do the
work and discover they’re just not meant for each other; if that happens, they’re
much more likely to part as friends.
Although this process of discovering real
love is not for the faint of heart, it is an incredible journey. You need a guide, someone who’s done the work
and can lead you in the right direction.
And you need to remember to be gentle with yourself. You ARE worthy of real love.
