“Author Terry Real once said, “We always marry our unfinished business,” and the same holds true for other partnerships. Just as partners can bring tremendous talent, connections, and value to the dance, they also bring along their baggage, like it or not. No partnership exists that does not have its struggles. It really has little to do with the job or project, but rather because the weaknesses of each partner are revealed (just as their strengths are) during the process of partnership. Partnership is about learning lessons. We are paired up by the architect of the universe with those who can teach the most in ways that may seem difficult on the surface, but absolutely perfect in the big scheme of things.
So many people have the opportunity to learn about themselves by being in partnerships, but they throw it away because the lessons are too hard. Take a deep look at the many partners in your life. Those people are there for a reason, some for a season, and often both. You don’t have to know why. It will be shown to you when the time is right – and you are ready.”
John St. Augustine, in “Living an Uncommon Life”
