My first love (who I loved for 13 years as I write in my book The Knot in the Spiral) used to say to me that difficulty in human relationships come from the fact that each one of us live the same event in a different way. This is why we fight, don’t we? Not understanding each other is what makes us suffer.
Today I realize how jealousy between brothers and sisters can still be alive more than 10 years after the birth of a new baby. I chose to have even more compassion for my children.
