Perfect Person

So much time and dedication is placed in relationships of all kinds: marriages, friendships, dating relationships, colleagues…whatever the case maybe. But no matter what we have, we constantly crave something that we don’t. Not that there’s anything wrong with the perfectly healthy relationships we nurture, but people “tell the truth & shame the devil” … people who aren’t married, want to be married. Unfortunately, some couples who are married, don’t want to be. People who know a lot of  random people but can’t say they have any tried and true friends,  want that small intimate group to bond with. Likewise, people with a close meaningful circle sometimes need a break. 

 Now of course some will say that they are the exception to the rule. However, the cause of this dreadful illness is searching for the “Perfect Person.” The endless quest for perfection impedes our ability to experience happiness. 

 Today a friend asked me about happiness. Her questions were straight forward and simple. 1)Has your definition of Happiness changed over time?  … 2) Do you think your definition of Happiness will change in the future? 

I encourage you examine how you define your happiness. Accepting you are not a perfect person allows you to love the imperfections in others.  

“Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.”
