"When someone shows you who they are, believe them"- Maya Angelou
Do you know who you are with? Do you ask questions and observe actions? Or do you just have your own vision of how you want someone to be and try to transform them into that.
It's very vital to know that as adults (25 and up), we are pretty much who we are going to be. You can change habits and learn from mistakes, but personality is there and some things can't be changed. Why would you want to be with someone that you want to change up and down? You won't have to completely change the essence of the one that is meant for you. There is room for improvement in men and women and this is fine, but at the end of the day, somethings about us will always be constant. Love the one you are with for who they are!! If you can't do that, then maybe that's not the one for you.
You are not perfect, so don't expect your mate to be perfect. There might be a few things that they do that will drive you crazy and vice-versa, but love can live in your relationship despite it all. I always felt that Beyoncé really told a true story in "Flaws and All" that discusses the love her mate has for her even though she is not perfect, and she in turn loves him for this. I won't go on and on about the song, but will instead let you get your own ear full.
Flaws and All- Beyoncé
