When love isn’t in our lives, it’s on the way; that is the nature of the universe. If you know a guest is coming at five o’clock, do you spend the day messing up the house? Of course not. You prepare. And that is what you should do for love.
— Marianne Williamson
When we’re incomplete, we’re always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we’re still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising. This can go on and on—series polygamy—until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment. Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.
