How can our partners heal us if they have some negative traits as our caretakers

This is your chance to give comments to this issues. Are they the least likely candidates to soothe our emotional injuries. An answer began to take shape in my mind. It was the only logical conclusion. If people were going to be healed, I conjectured,their partners would have to change. In other words, in his efforts to heal his partner he would be recovering an essential part of himself. Agree or Disagre? you're all invited to say about this issue.

Every connection between two people can be healing and modified for both of them. This is common process i think, because every change we make in us- has influence to the world arround us and our partner is a part of this world.

I think it depends on what you mean by negative traits, and what kind of negative traits, since we all have those, and none of us are perfect. If the partner is controlling for example, that might not be a good trait as a caregiver, since that might be do it his way or not at all. I don't think you can change someone else, or think they'll change to meet your expectations. The only person you can really change is yourself.
