“You become one parent and marry the other one.”
I really fought this one for a while and, with deeper self reflection, I saw how the truth in it.
Think about it for a moment - what of your mom or dad do you see in yourself? Now, what of your more or dad do you see in your spouse?
Try all these thoughts on for size but only wear the one that fits. (Hint: I kept getting the same woman in a different dress. Are you getting the same man in a different suit?)
If I could reduce the sum and substance of what my mom and dad were after in this life, I would say that dad wanted respect and mom wanted to be valued.
Working Theory: Is it any wonder that my life work is to help people regain their self-respect and create more value in their lives?!
