Can roommates really become soul mates? Yes they can, because human relationships are self-correcting arrangements. Each morning you wake up and begin creating the substance, the tone, and feel of your togetherness. More than any other factor, you personally determine the way your partner treats you. You can either keep behaving in the same unsatisfying way, or you can choose to make something new happen by showing up differently. Love begets love. Demonstrate through your words and actions the love you yearn for, and it will come back to you.
