If we ask for patience, we get more opportunities to be patient. If we ask for love and commitment from another, what will we get? Will we draw betrayal and abandonment to ourselves as part of an opportunity to become more loving and committed?
By thinking this way, we have forgotten Oneness. They are you and you are them. Life is a mirror of every nuance of our beliefs. When we see ourselves as within the center of the ONE, we realize that only self love, self approval and self honoring are important.
By honoring yourself the only reflection you will see in others is love and commitment because now you have loved and committed to yourself.
