Relationship 4

Don’t assume you’re superior just because your partner doesn’t complain about your faults as much as you do about theirs. They may have found a way to love you despite your flaws, so be grateful and strive to love them in return. This will help you be more understanding and accommodating. Make no mistake, being in a relationship with someone like you isn’t easy. Instead of wishing for change, work on your own issues.

There is no relationship without challenges. What you need is not to wish you are not in one (except if it is ungodly)… What you need is the wisdom and courage to deal with the challenges peculiar to yours.

Who says love is a smooth ride? No matter how much you and your partner have in common, and no matter how well you two know each other, if you have never wished you could insult the living daylight out of him/her; reject his/her call and not bother; ignore them for a few days and still be happy with yourself. Then one of you is either pretending or one of you has an upper hand in the relationship. It’s definitely not a balanced relationship…

“Whenever the imperfections of the person you love provoke negative feelings in you, it serves as a reminder that you are just as flawed, weak, and fallible as the person you resent.” But as we are patient with our loved ones and their flaws, we find ourselves learning lessons which help us become better people ourselves. We become more understanding, friendlier, more supportive, and indeed, more accommodating. When we transcend into this level of reality, loving becomes easy and much more selfless.

Sometimes, it’s not about the flaws our partners have, but about our impatience with them whenever those flaws show. No one should approve of imperfection, but we can learn to love an imperfect thing in a perfect way, realizing that no one is entirely weak, just as none of us is entirely strong.

There is no one without a weakness or a flaw to deal with, even you. Love might not have it all and neither do you. There are always two options: understand the implications of being in the kind of relationship you are in, and make the amount of sacrifice necessary to sustain your relationship.

You can also choose to run away and believe me, once you do, you will always encounter a circumstance that will keep you running. To love and be loved is a choice. It will have consequences. And you hold on to love, not so that people do not tell you “We told you so”; You hold on because you made a choice worth believing in.
