“We learn about ourselves through relationships because they reflect what we are back to us. If you are surrounded by nonsense that means you have allowed nonsense to establish itself in your life. Simple really. If your relationships are loving and empowering that means that you are also. The name of the game is to review all your relationships from time to time to assess what it is you contribute and what it is you receive in return.
Relationships change so quickly that it should be a part of your modus to institute quality control into every aspect of your life. If you are not getting what you want, or if you are putting in all the efforts and the others are contributing little, it will become obvious. Then you must decide if that is acceptable to you or not. If not, you will diplomatically indicate what your needs are and suggest that they fulfill them. In turn you find out what they want. If both of you want something different and things can’t be resolved, do not be afraid to release them or to walk away yourself.”
Stuart Wilde, in “The Quickening”
