Often times, we are looking for what someone else can do for us. We may get upset because our partner is not giving us what we want, not showing up for us in a way that “makes us happy.” Instead of continuing to look outside yourself for what someone can do for you, turn inward. A Course in Miracles says, “Only what you are not giving can be lacking in any situation.” This holds true for all our interactions. When something isn’t going as you desire—reassess. “What am I not giving?” When you’re not getting, try giving! When you’re not finding any common ground, try giving more of yourself. Try being more open, more loving.  You can learn something valuable from each person in front of you, even if it’s harder with some than with others. It means you must try to dig deeper within yourself to access that part of them to which you can relate.
