Relationships with others are THE proving ground for growth.
Of course, you have a relationship with yourself, and there is always constant self-development we can (and probably should) be working on daily.
But relationships with others, especially with the people we love and work with most, are where the most tensions – and opportunities – lie.
It is in those disagreements, those communications (both verbal and non-verbal), that the universe is offering us a chance to mend, build, and create something better than what was there before.
Keep in mind that whatever was there before, you were a part of creating, and you are here now because you need to work on it.
