“Try viewing everyone who comes into your life as a teacher. See every other person as the part of you that is ready to grow. In relationships, it is not an accident that sustaining partnerships are combinations of opposites. We often love someone who represents an underdeveloped part of ourselves. Instead of judging others as people who should or should not be behaving in certain ways, see them as reflecting a part of you and ask yourself what it is you are ready to learn from them.
Love the seemingly opposites in your world, treasure their way of being as a gift to you. And remember, those who seem to cause you the most anguish are those who remind you of what you feel is either lacking or wanting in yourself. If you did not react at all, it would mean that you were totally indifferent. The fact that you do react, while preferring indifference, means there is something inside you that gets hooked when you encounter that provocative behavior. It is your learning situation, not their problem.”
Dr. Wayne Dyer, in “You’ll See it When you Believe It”
