Recovering our relationships does not involve forward projections.

We all desire to be loved, starting as children by our parents. So often our parents failed us, and sometimes failed us grossly. This sets up a dynamic within ourselves in which we spend the rest of our lives seeking parents in others, both in friendships and especially in romantic relationships.

 We project our split-off needs, desires, and unresolved sides of ourselves onto our friends and partners, even onto our children, in order to attempt to re- solve our childhood dilemmas. This is a set-up for disaster and a guarantee for forward unhealthy relationships. Our job is to see people for who they are and not to project our unresolved issues onto them. Healthy relationships begin when we look within knowing the full truth about our own selves.
