In any relationship, if there is work to be done in both of the individuals due to a lifetime of sweeping things under the rug, then once the “honeymoon” phase of the relationship is over and shit gets real, shit is going to hit the fan. And unless you’re prepared to get knee deep in some shit, that relationship will not survive. But what happens if you decide to avoid what may seem superfluous to your ability to maintain a healthy relationship, choose not to deal with your shit and instead head straight into another relationship? Shit. That’s what happens. So put on your rubber boots ‘cuz it’s about get messy! Whether you’re over here with this person or over there with that person, shit is still shit. It gets stuck to the bottom of your shoe and as you sniff the air you may wonder, “Where is that smell coming from? Surely it’s not me.” But it is you. And it’s not going anywhere. You will continue to choose (unconsciously) and welcome into your life people who have the potential to bring out the worst in you. It is as if we know that that is the only way we can grow. And with this bit of information, as long as our partners have an equal ability to bring out the best in us, we can transform the manure of our lives into the fertilizer from which we obtain divine nourishment and soul quenching love.
