Were our knowledge of human relationships a hundredfold more reliable than it is now,
it would still be foolish to seek ready-made solutions for problems of living in the index of a book. —Mirra Komarovsky—
The problems each of us experience have within their own parameters the solutions most fitting. And we each must discover those solutions, understand their appropriateness, and absorb them into the
body of information that defines who we are and who we are becoming.
We learn experientially because only then is our reality significantly affected. Others’ experiences are helpful to
our growth and affirm how similar is our pain, but each of us must make our own choices,
take responsible action in our own behalf.
How fortunate that we are now in a position to make healthy decisions about our relationships!
No longer the victim, we have the personal power to choose how we want to spend our time and with whom.
Through active participation in all our relationships, we can discover many of the hidden elements in our
own natures and develop more fully all the characteristics unique to our personhood. Our growth as
recovering women is enhanced in proportion to our sincere involvement within the relationships we’ve chosen.
I can inform myself about who I am within my relationships. Therein lie the solutions to my problems.
