but the caveat / entry fee for receiving is to know yourself well enough
to know that "what you want"
comes from within you
. . . and wasn't planted as an idea by someone else
until you know what you want -- and go about consciously making it happen
relationships will be wishy-washy far more often than not
as you are then looking for the relationship to define your "reaction" rather than having your intention (grounded in actual "self-awareness")
drive the dynamics of how you interact and get along
that "letting the relationship drive" mentality is the mind-set of the "co-dependent"
always a bad place to be
. . . you have to be "in the moment" and not lost in space
ultimately, strong relationships are built on strong partners
who know themselves
