You can’t fully meet and understand another until you’ve fully met and understood yourself. You know when you talk to some people it feels as if they just get you, they understand the you beyond the words and stories. With others you can use however many explanations and metaphors but they still don’t at all understand who you are and you always feel misunderstood.
I believe the difference here are people that have gone towards the depths of themselves or not. If you’ve never dared to dig a little deeper, you will never go deep with anyone else. Do the work. And, as if understanding yourself wasn’t reward enough, you will have the benefit of understanding others better as well.
With all my love,
