Every relationship has a purpose

by John Robson on October 18, 2011

What’s the purpose of your relationship?
What lessons are you to learn from it?

From a soul perspective, every relationship has a purpose. Ultimately, it is there to teach us something about love. Once again, we repeat: challenges in relationships are the best
stimulus for growth!

Andrew Schneider has identified four purposes that may be served by your primary relationship, and we suspect these four may play a role in any relationship:

– security and survival,
– personality development,
– learning and letting go, or
– to express soul qualities.

He also counsels that it’s important to complete the purpose of a relationship before it’s dissolved. If we don’t, we can be sure that the next relationship we attract into our life will
challenge us with the same issues.

“True love has a very high purpose. It is to deliver us — through the mirroring presence of the person who loves us — to the deepest reaches of our selves, to a sense of the meaning of our
lives and to a fulfillment of that purpose.”- Daphne Rose Kingma
