I totally agree with this statement. I am currently in the process of finding my true self. I feel I have grown out of all of my friends except maybe 1 or 2 because we are on the same path and help each other grow. I continually look for people who have the same goals and challenge me to continually grow into who I see myself becoming.
It is true on some level. Because you will mostly attract those where you socialize in real life (not always online). But then again, you do attract who is interested in what you are when they may be the polar opposite. It's all about balancing each other out. One may be wild and the other down to earth, one may be a dreamer and the other a realist. But it also boils down to how much do you support the other's life goals. The relationship cannot be altruistic because in the end it may bring unhappiness because the altruistic one may feel unfulfilled for not having taken their own personal goals into consideration.
Very cut and dry statement and filled with problems, such as: we are multifaceted human beings presenting different self's to the world. We may be a parent in one role, a child in another, a boss in another. We may feel competent in one role, vulnerable in the next.
We are not one thing. We are made up of many energies. Who we meet has a lot to do with with where we are at the time. Where do we find ourselves?
I disagree with the quote. If someone is just like you, where is the fun at that relationship, it would kill passion. I think people attract what they need, or I should put it in other words, people get attracted to what they need; so two people becomes together to create one complete.
Do you agree or disagree with this quote? “You attract what you are, not what you want. So if you want it then reflect it!” -Tony Gaskins
Remember, that thinking of Attraction is driven by what your thinking about most of the time. If you're attracting what you dislike the most, your attracting the sum of your fear. More accurately are attracting what you THINK you are. You could be lovely and smart and sadly taught by predominate relationships that your invisable and dull mentally, you'll attract the level of comfort of your self perception.
I attract what I want and what I dont want, But only stay with what I want. 2 people just alike for me = boredom. I would not want a clone. Two people that complement one another with similar interest is a start, but not all the same interest because then your partner becomes your backpack and Everyone needs to breath thier own air sometimes, even in a relationship.
As William Shakespeare said,,,,Love looks not from the eyes ..but from the mind..
I love this quote as I think this is so very true in my experience.I know I am always drawn to someone of a similar mindset to myself....regardless to a great extent of age or looks.and it has worked vica versa
However...I have to admit I have also attracted my fair share of clowns! haha : ))
..altho none on this site yet thankfully!..
i think i disagree. if people are too much alike i think things might be a little mundane. shouldnt we learn and maybe take with us the good qualities that we "adopt" or learn from others close to us that we admire and / or respect?
I disagree, we do not attract what we are at all. For example if youre a beautiful person , do you always attract beautiful people ? not all the time, you end up attracting the wrong attention in retrospect. The weirdos, the geiks , people the totally opposite of yourself. I wish I did attract what I really wanted.
Thats just how I feel about that sayin.
Might be true in some circumstances like smile and the world will smile back..i also agree that we also can attract what we might need at a certain moment anddisattract what we dont...but they also say opposites attract for a reason meaning sometimes opposites complete eachother while the same can get into a fuzz...so i would say its relative..as stated...an innocent lamb will definately attract a vicious wolfe etc...the human mind is very complex and there are many sensoric strings floating which either get picked up or picks up...waves..hence attraction is somewhat unexplanable to a precise point.
I dont agree, Ive been on a few dating cites and I never attract someone like me, I have a degree and am always looking for someone who is educated but I always attract the opposite, I am very positive and some of these men just tell me sad or negative stories no matter how I try to turn the conversation around Or I will try to chat about meaningful things and they just want to talk about " your cute " or "what are you doing tonight"
