Today there are a lot of people and media trying to set standards on what should be the perfect partner, what characteristics should a person posses in order to be the perfect partner, or what are the signs that he/she is a keeper.
But do you really think that these standards are the same for everyone?
There is no such thing as the perfect person but there can be the perfect person for you and that person before everything else should be your friend, scratch that- your best friend!
You see there is no such thing as the perfect heavenly relationship where it’s all milk and honey. Sure it’s nice at the start- this is the most wonderful person you’ve ever met, but after a couple of months you also begin to know the other side of the person, their bad habits, or moods. This is all very normal and at this point the best you can do is get to know their demons better, and find a way to love them. Some people experience problems with expressing themselves, others are not used to admitting that they are wrong, and sometimes our emotions can get mixed up so it is difficult for our partner to know what we are actually thinking. In order to not let the tension build up you must learn to communicate with one another, be compassionate and learn to understand each other, forgive and admit when you were wrong. These are the moments that actually make your relationship stronger. Learn to help them at their hard times and let them help you. To establish a strong bond takes a lot of hard work but it gets easier once you know and learn to help each other. When you know each other well enough it is a lot easier and you learn and create new ways to help each other grow, overcome your demons, and you will be surprised how many fights actually can come out of bad communication habits.
There is no greater feeling in the world when you love a person completely;milk, honey and demons included. 🙂
