The title to this blog is from Pema Chodron, the American Tibetan Buddhist and teacher. I have experienced this to be so true – that nothing goes away until we get the lesson. It just keeps showing up time and time again in our lives.
I work with clients who keep bumping into the same obstacles in relationships – from falling for emotionally unavailable partners, to continually getting involved in emotional rescue operations.
It leaves them feeling disempowered, empty and longing for love.
You cannot “Love” anyone better until you approach love from a state of fullness – and in such a state you will not be attracted to someone who is not physically or emotionally available. I know this because I’ve been there in past relationships.
It is then that you will have learnt the lesson the life always seems to place before you – the lesson of loving yourself enough to only seek and find a healthy love from an emotionally healthy individual because you are in that emotionally healthy place and the healthy boundaries are in place.
Wishing you magical kisses and great love
