Think about the attributes in a partner and/or future partner that would inspire you. Maybe they are right under your eyes…Maybe there is something that you take for granted. Focus and look at what draws you to them in the first place. Something that will call out the best in you and that inspires you.
We each have a unique soul-calling in this life, but most of us have a hard time hearing it because of what counter forces tell us to be! Counter forces can include parents, friends, siblings, bosses, coaches…even our culture. There are counter forces surrounding you in the environment you choose to live in, and some can be extremely opinionated and loud.
In the ordinary, real world, people live with labels. Labels make it easier for people to understand others, like sorting people into boxes of similar things. For instance, someone may have boxes labeled “addict,” “depressed,” “uptight.” When they meet someone, they want to easily understand that person and so they mentally put them in one of the boxes they’ve already labeled. They think they know how to predict that person’s behavior and motivations now that they have labeled them.
