Almost every one of us seeks a special partner who is just right but there is no right person, just different flavors of wrong. Why? Because you, yourself are wrong in some ways. You have demons and flaws and problems. In fact these wrongs are an essential component of who you are. When you ripen into this understanding you are ready to find and be with your special counterpart. He or she has the precise set of problems you need as the person who is wrong for you in just the right ways. – Andrew Boyd
“ I don’t care about your past, all I wanna know is if there is a place for me in your future.”
“I think the most rewarding relationships, the ones that last, are born from friendship. One day you look at the person and see more than you did the night before, like a switch was flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is suddenly the only person you can imagine yourself with.”
– “Dana Scully” in The Rain King episode of The X-Files (1999)
The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them-words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were In your head to no more than living size when they’re brought out. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you’ve said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That’s the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller but for want of an understanding ear.
Be one who nurtures and builds. Be on who has an understanding and forgiving heart; who looks for the best in people. Leave people better than you found them. – Marvin J. Ashton
To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart. – Eleanor Roosevelt
No matter how spiritual we are, our lives will have challenges. We will always run into people that are different that we are, but the true challenge may be in finding ways to be at peace with this process. Rather than give in to the fight or flight response that comes from our animal nature, we can find new ways to evolve together into higher more beautiful expressions of ourselves, realizing, embracing and celebrating the beauty of diversity and the strength it offers for the future.

Perhaps I just desire such a connection, such a trust, that I could literally give my life to and feel no twinge of regret.

“The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical
substances: If there’s any reaction, both are transformed.”
