From the movie “Jerry McGuire” came the phrase “you complete me.” But, the truth of the matter is that no other person can complete us. There is nothing really missing. There only areas within self that lack attention. When we focus our attention on these areas then it is possible for these areas to flourish. A sense of wholeness begins to develop and in that sense we begin to complete ourselves.
This does not mean we identify with those areas, it only means that we recognize their potentials and start to utilize them. In this way we expand and grow without necessarily forming a false attachment to identity.
