I know this title sounds like an oxymoron, but I want to challenge your thinking process.
During the beginning stages of dating, and many times in a marriage, we give and get the ‘representative’. We don’t see the PERFECT IMPERFECTIONS- the little things that make us who we are and drive our behaviors and personalities. Identifying the things that makes us compatible are vital to success, therefore, we must keep an open mind and observe the things that may vex our spirits.
I’m a huge fan of love ballads and there’s a popular song which states, “You’re my downfall, you’re my muse, my worst distraction, my rhythm and blues”. The lyrics plainly states how much the author loves his mate along with all of her PERFECT IMPERFECTIONS.
I know without a doubt that I drive my wife batty with my cleaning obsession, and she makes me cringe when I’m driving and she points out every direction. We are all flawed, so remind yourself of this when we put unrealistic expectations on others. I wouldn’t want to spend my life with someone who believes they are PERFECT and have no IMPERFECTIONS.
We should always be looking to grow and become better. So instead of searching for PERFECTION, discover the PERFECT IMPERFECTIONS and embrace them.
Love you guys, see you next week….
