Someone you love is serving as a powerful mirror. By powerful I mean emotional, intellectual, and spiritual: They’re offering a full-spectrum image. You may not understand what you see, but somehow you recognize it as your reflection. It’s revealing many aspects of yourself that until now have existed outside of your ability to see them, or notice their significance. In relationships, we often seek our “other half,” and desire self-completion in sexual experiences. The experience you’re having is showing you the way that you’re already complete, or at least pointing you to the compelling idea that you can seek all aspects of yourself from within. The thing about being whole is that this necessarily includes the darker shades of your emotions, including your fears, and those moments when you notice you’re disgusted with yourself. There’s no point blaming others for those feelings—and the more you claim them as your own, the more you integrate the cast-off parts of yourself, and heal the insults and injuries that create the situation in the first place. Far from making your relationships less fulfilling, this will put you in a position to relate to others as a whole person (which is a lot more fun than thinking you’re a fraction of a person). There is confidence that emerges from self-acceptance and self-understanding that you cannot fake and that nothing can substitute for. When you are solid with yourself, you will draw solid and aware people to you—which I am sure you’ll appreciate.
