Allow Others to be Imperfect, and Love Them Anyway


Happiness lies in accepting everyone
in our lives EXACTLY as they are.
We cause ourselves untold misery whenever
we believe others to be imperfect and try to change them.
This is the number one rule for a happy relationship.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Being human, we are imperfect. That's why we need each other.
To catch each other when we falter.
To encourage each other when we lose heart.
Some may lead; others may follow; but none of us can go it alone.
- Hilary Clinton 

[As always, I chose quotes based on the inspirational value of the specific quote, and not on the life of the person quoted.]

We come to love not by finding the perfect person,
but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.
- Angelina Jolie

Love is sometimes shown
in the things you don't say,
don't keep track of, and don't notice.
 ...
The greatest kindness is often shown
in letting things go.
None of us is perfect,
but we can all be perfect friends
and perfect partners by allowing
those that we love to be
imperfect.
- Neale Donald Walsch
