Love, in relationships, fades away all too soon. And then, we are unable to find a single good quality in the person we once loved. The survival of any relationships depends in accepting people as they are and not how you want to be. It’s important to remember that our perspective changes with expectations and we end up getting what we are looking for, whether it’s a garbage of bad qualities or a gold mine of good qualities.
People want to deal with others’ strengths and not weaknesses; their stabilities and not idiosyncrasies. Rather than rejecting a person due to his bad side, the need is to provide empathic assistance in dealing with the shortcomings.
