Relationships Make You Conscious, Not Happy

 This has so resonated with me.  I figured out early in my marriage that it is not my job to make my husband happy -- that's his job.  After a few years, I realized that it was also not his job to make me happy, that's MY job.  I have grown so much in our relationship, not because he makes me happy, but because he can stoke every unconscious and unresolved issue in every dark corner of my being.  Today, I am grateful and in love with my husband for helping with my growth which has released me to deeper connect with spirit, love of self and others and a rich life.  The journey was not easy as I had to grieve the relationship I thought I wanted with him and trust that something better was ahead.
