Friends, Partners and Loves
In life, we find friends, partners and loves. What is often the hardest thing to do, is accept them as they are. We want them to be what we want them to be. That is most often, not what we get. Too often we expect certain behaviors from others, even while we expect them to accept us for who we are. We aren’t perfect, they aren’t perfect, either. Accepting your friends, partners and loves for who they are and not what we wished they were, is how relationships last. It’s the corner stone of unconditional love.
Relationships are hard. That’s the reality. But one might ask themselves if life “with” your less than perfect friend, partner or love is better or worse. How would life be without that person in your life? Better or worse? Only you can decide which it would be. Remember, you cannot change who they are or how they behave, you can only change what you are willing to accept in your life. If you decide to accept them as they are, then truly accept it and remove expectations from your thoughts.
Above all, be honest with yourself when deciding what you can and cannot live with from friends, partners and loves. KJ @ KJ-isms
