While I am working on a post about the mistakes women make in relationships, I came across this quote by Kathy Freston.

In her book “The ONE. Discovering the Secrets of Soul Mate Love” she writes:


Love can play itself out in so many scenarios (warm and excited conversations, great sex, screaming fights, tumultuous breakups, to name just a few), that it’s not always easy to see its underlying message.

I believe it is this: You are not successful in love just because you find a partner and stick with them for a lifetime; you are successful in love when it provides you with a way to keep learning about yourself and the world around you, becoming more connected with the Oneness of all of life, so that each experience you have – glorious, sad, or frustrating – becomes a strand in the web of your evolution. How you navigate the ins and outs of love is what gives purpose to your time on earth.”
