I’ve been wondering why its so difficult to find a companion.
It could be for the simple fact that your not suppose to search for love, love is suppose to find you. But I think it goes way beyond that. We live in a world full of so many expectations. Its cliche to start with this but as an infant your expected to eventually walk as you grow. As you get older, your parents have expectations for you. And those soon become your expectations, until your old enough to develop your own. However, in a world where media influences today’s society, are you really as an individual making your own expectations and standards, or are you being influenced by things around you to make them?
How can any individual truly find what they want if they’re constantly comparing someone to an idealistic figure?
Perfection is one thing but in some cases people don’t always except people for their flaws. I found this quote recently, “ Everybody is quick to tell you how great or different they are, But who is willing to admit their flaws?” and it really made me think.
No one you ever meet will come out and admit their weaknesses and problems. Its usually something you find out along the way and most of time before its too late. That could easily imply that some people don’t think anything is wrong with them. But deep down, everyone struggles with something.
I’ve learned from past experiences that its okay to have high standards but you have to take into consideration that no one is perfect, and not everyone is going to fully meet all of what you want. Also, you shouldn’t settle for something you know won’t work just for temporary happiness.
This was just a few things going through my mind.
