The perfectly imperfect relationships #theopenbook
This is perhaps the most complex thing to write about & possibly, one topic that needs a lifetime & still can’t be deciphered to perfection!
Let’s face it. Individuals are not perfect & consequently, nor are relationships. It’s finding the calm in these perfect imperfections that are so critical to your happiness quotient.
- You don’t need to have an opinion on everything. Things that have no impact on you shouldn’t bog you down.
- Let go. It’s difficult but it’s important. Don’t let incidents linger on.
- Respect is key. Constant breach of trust & respect never helps relationships.
- Honour personal space & living styles. Being in any relationship is peaceful if you let the other person be who they are & let them have the time & space for things that make them happy.
The relationships that are strongest are the ones that involve warmth, respect & acceptance. Needless to say, nobody drives it alone – it’s a two-way road that requires reciprocation. A lot of times, we try to fix only one side of relationships & ignore the symbiosis. That not just makes it difficult but also unfair.
Think through before you judge & try to fix a relationship for someone. One of the above elements would be missing. Share the onus – there’s no balance without weights on either sides.
