The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them. – Thomas Merton
We must learn to love the differences.
To embrace the different perspective.
Relationships are a constant exercise in learning about and embracing the important people in our lives for all that makes them unique.
It’s true that balancing our own needs and desires with those of our loved ones and their unique perspective is difficult, but we all know it is worth it.
How might you encourage someone in your life to be more perfectly themselves?
How might you be more selfless in how you expect others to act?
Who deserves an apology?
Make it a great day.
