We can’t change a partner; but we can change how we respond to a partner. We can purify our love for that partner. And when we do, we learn the lesson being presented to us; we prepare ourselves for the next lesson. It will be with the same partner or a new partner.
Our lessons are determined by us; and they don’t change because we change partners.
I’m not suggesting that you stay in an abusive relationship, but rather that YOU must be healthy to have a healthy relationship. Sometimes that means walking away. Sometimes that means learning the lesson in front of you, before you walk away. And sometimes it means learning the lesson in front of you … and realizing that you don’t have to go someplace else to be healthy and happy.
