As I was writing this article, I was discussing the subject with a very good friend of mine from New York named Manny Siverio.
He told me something very simple, yet VERY profound.
“You know Edie, for a relationship to really work, we have to become happy, complete, and One with ourselves first. You take that “One”, whole person, pair them up with another “whole” person, and One times One is One. Together they would become One. comfortable with themselves, and content on their own. But if you take a person half that, someone who needs another to ‘complete them’, and you combine that with another half a person, Half times a Half is a Quarter. Now if you take someone who’s a complete person, a One for example, and pair them up with a complete Zero, One times Zero is Zero.”
