We, too, as the Celtic saying goes, “live in the shelter of each other.”
No one can dance with a partner and not touch each other’s "raw spots." We must know what these raw spots are and be able to speak about them in a way that pulls our partner closer to us. So, I think ultimately, hurt will come.
However, Love, like a dance, is a constant process of tuning in, connecting, missing and misreading cues, disconnecting, repairing, and finding deeper connection.
It is a dance of meeting and parting and finding each other again. Minute to minute and day to day. Just learning to dance more gracefully over time and experience means committing to being on the dance floor every day, paying attention, and attuning to the music, steps, and emotion of the dance.
