Have Compassion. Know there is a Root Cause

Very few realize that everything is exactly as it should be, and the worst can be the best learning experience.
We often learn more from failure. Even in relationships. "It is the learning that the soul is interested in, not the result." (Shakti Durga).

Relationships are a good opportunity to grow. "The purpose of a relationship is to decide what part of yourself you’d like to see ‘show up,’ not what part of another you can capture and hold. There can only be one purpose for relationships, and for all of life: to be and to decide who you really are."
We may like someone, and share much love. But then we reject the whole person when disturbed by 1 shortcoming. There is a root cause to everyone's distortions. Including our own. Very few are perfect. We are a result of our past, purifying ourselves to become perfect.
We need to accept and respect each one's unique nature and not expect them to be like us. There is no right or wrong.

There are some deep impressions in me. The way I was treated in my past, and what I experienced made me feel that no one loves me, except Krishnji. I was different from others, non-conventional, a rebel, resulting in being despised, rejected and shunned. Then I felt separate from the others, couldn't relate or connect, I cut myself off from the world and became a loner. So the deep pain and impressions have brought distortions in me. I still feel no one loves me, I project this in my relationships, and when a relationship has problems it reinforces and deepens this impression, leading to further pain within. So it's not about others, it's about me!

I know the solution. I'm justifying my limitations using this argument. It is to help me understand and address the root cause. I need to then remove these impressions and Karms. How? Through Karm Yog, spiritual practices like pranayams and meditation, Bhakti, and knowing my true nature (Jnan). I know I am love. I need to turn within and have an affair with my Self! Then I will not look for love from others. 

We are beings of love, and we are here to share love. 
"As you give love,you receive it from every nook & corner of existence.The more you give,the more you get. Life becomes a sheer dance of love." (Sri Sri Ravi Shankar)

We need to realize that a shortcoming we dislike in the other has a root cause, as there are in us. See the bigger picture. Each one has their story.
Let's have compassion for others and start with our self. Else we will create a society where everyone is alone.
