I like this excerpt from Don Miguel Ruiz publication: The Mastery of Love
“Once you accept yourself just the way You’re, the next step is to take
your partner. Should you choose to be with a person, do not try to change anything about her, then let her know who she is; she’s a right TO BE FREE.
When you inhibit your spouses freedom, you inhibit your own as you’ve got to be there to find out what your partner is doing or not doing. And if you adore YOUR-self so much, you’re never going to give up your private FREEDOM.
Be your-self. Find someone who matches with YOU. If it DOESN’T work, then do your-self and your spouse a favor; WALK AWAY, Permit him/her go, do not be selfish. Give your partner the chance to obtain what they truly want and at exactly the exact same time give your-self the chance. When it is not going to work, it is far better to LOOK at a DIFFERENT direction.
IF YOU CANNOT LOVE YOUR PARTNER THE WAY SHE IS, someone else can LOVE her as she / he is.
Do not waste your time and do not Waste your spouse’s time. This is RESPECT.

Simply embracing and implementing such words will change each of your relationships. Conscious relationships built on actual love have to be learned, not because I say so, but because to have a true loving encounter you need to love yourself and not require another to fulfil you. It is common sense when you break it down.
Treat others the way you want to be treated
Simplicity is Divinity
