Whatever needs to happen in your life to get you where you're supposed to go, your lover helps you find it and they even push you along on your path. Their love for you helps you to learn deep, important truths about your life and your future that you might never have guessed at on your own. They're naturally a deep and intensely emotional person, and they help you tap into your own inner depths that might previously have been hidden to you.
While this is definitely an intense experience and could even be uncomfortably so for you, it undoubtedly is a positive experience for you in the end. Whether your relationship is short-term or long-term, this person encourages you to become who you are, just through their being themselves and operating on their normal, natural level. They help you process the more difficult emotional experiences of your life and help you figure out what your innate talents are, and how they can best be used in your life. They show you the path toward enlightenment, and you look back on this experience with gratitude no matter how long the relationship lasts. As long as you stay motivated to process your emotions and are active in your personal transformation, you develop a clearer idea of where you're supposed to head in life.
