Kris, great stuff.
“Great relationships aren’t about finding near-perfect partners — they’re about being near-perfect partners. Which means accepting another person, flaws and all, and investing in them wholly, without carving off some of your care for “nostalgia” — or cutting either of yourselves short.
Choose the one to love. And then love the one you choose”.
It’s so funny. It sounds so easy on paper. Having a relationship is a work of art. It can be intimidating, challenging to work at things, difficult to stay with and rewarding when a depth of vulnerability is apparent.
I call it the low hum of love that is there because of the work put in.
It’s crazy how experts try to define and fix what it means to love. Love is creativity. It definitely lives beyond the thoughts that you think about as love.
Thanks for sharing.
