When you are strong within yourself then you want to spend time with others, give to them, and support their dreams and visions of life just as you expect them to do for you. Companionship enhances who you already are and allows you to develop your sense of right and wrong together rather than solely for yourself. All together when you are with others life enhances, grows, develops, and charges forward to much greater lengths than trying to do everything by yourself. You just don't have enough strength to do it all on your own.
Love is the key to companionship. Love for yourself, but also love for others. Developing that love takes happiness in the body you are in as well as deep understanding of your own strengths, weaknesses, assets, and values. Once you know those and take action to live by those values you can truly partner in a healthy way with another who gets you and truly values you for who you are. Then you can take chances on bigger and better things, enhance your world and grow together rather than be so small on your own. Love truly does conquer lack of patience, as well as deep destructive tendencies which would push the other person away. When you love another you request more of their time and togetherness in a way that they can see you truly care for them without getting upset because they know you, they understand your ways, and develop a healthy way of guiding you back to your own assets for they bring out the best version of you. Work to develop that healthy relationship for when you find it it will be the safest place for you to land each and every single day. Who do you need to be in order to develop that kind of relationship with another?
