I’m in total agreement with the author. It seems the article is about my own life, my own illusions, fears and problems.
Becoming a psychologist was a huge step on the way of healing my own self. As to our relationships with opposite sex — they really are our reflections. They are what we have inside ourselves but cannot or refuse to see.
According to Jung we have both masculine and feminine part — Animus and Anima. And we choose our partner in accordance with this other part of ourselves. So women choose their men similar to their Animus, and men choose their women similar to their Anima. Surely, there is much more to it, but it always helps to know. Forewarned is forearmed.
