Hi guys,

I have difficulty in understanding the following paragraph. Could someone make it simple and understandable for me?

Where we found others most deficient and most neglectful in our history is where we will prove most needy, most demanding, or most manipulative of the one we profess to love.

    Which part is giving you difficulty?

    Where (=the place or time at which)
    we found others
    [to be] most deficient and most neglectful
    in our history
    is
    where (=the place or time at which)
    we will prove most needy, most demanding, or most manipulative
    of the one [whom] we profess to love.

    They are the same place...

    A: I can't find my phone!
    B: Where you will find it is where you last used it. = the place at which you will find it is the place at which you last used it.
