reconstruct and transform

To be fully human, people ought to have as authentic a relationship as possible with others. They should know that in their deepest being they are intrinsically free to reconstruct and transform themselves, and they need to grant others the same powerful freedom.

Oh- how I need to be reminded, to be assured, that this is what is going on in my life right now… and loving someone is truly about being sane as s/he grows into her/himself, and the same gift of freedom returned.

As much as I love my partner, I have asked for separation, to have the room to restructure myself, because I was DYING the way I had myself contained. What a gift that he loves me enough to let that happen.

This is a great reminder. It might be drawn up and put on my wall.
