The view is always better from distance. When you get closer, you don’t get the perfect looks. You get to see the flaws. More of them, actually!
So are our relationships. It always appears pleasant from a distance. Only when you commit, you feel the real vibe. You might find pleasure, reflections, and even stuff you don’t like.
As a generic instance, let us consider the marvels of nature.
We don’t say that the mighty mountains might have looked better had they been steeper. We don’t judge the evening sky, saying it’d have been more beautiful had the blend of colours been bit lighter. We neither judge the vast oceans nor the endless deserts. We don’t judge nature. Their identity is their beauty.
“You’re imperfect, and you’re wired for struggle, but you’re worthy of love and belonging. ”
– Brene Brown
Cultivate similar thoughts, also with relationships, and try to stop being judgemental. Accept the flaws, and relish the good.
Accepting and loving others for what they are, is equally important as self-acceptance and self-love. Life isn’t perfect always, neither with us nor with others!
