I recently heard one of Justin Timberlake's new songs, "Mirrors", and was drawn to it. I did some research and found out the meaning of it and came across the quote above. It is a great statement on how real love should be like a mirror.
When you are in a relationship with someone you should be able to grow as a person and still be who you are as an individual as well as allowing the other person to do the same. Being you is what makes you special and what attracted your partner to you in the first place. So instead of trying to become someone you are not to please them, you should grow and evolve to become a better couple together based on the needs of each other, all while keeping the person who you are inside visible. And by doing so you will then mirror each other as a reflection of similar goals, interests, growth and love. The mirror reflects two parts that equal a whole.
You should also be able to look at your own reflection in the mirror of life and see the person you want to and deserve to be. You should see someone who realizes their happiness and gifts in life. Someone who realizes just how special it is to have someone by their side allowing them to grow yet still be themselves. Remember what you give out you receive So if the reflection of your life, the things and people in your life, are not what you want to see then you should examine what is causing that and change it. If you and your partner are having issues take a second to look at what you are giving out that may in turn be what is reflected back to you. Be individuals but also reflections of your own values and beliefs about love and you will naturally grow and strengthen your bond.
