The human tendency is to ail for perfection in everything. When it comes to relationships, people are particularly concerned that it should be perfect. But in reality, relationships are not perfect. They are fraught with problems. Disturbances and turbulence occur more frequently than we expect. Often they occur for no reason at all. We sometimes wonder whether we should live in an imperfect relationship.
Unfortunately, perfect relationship doesn't exist. Imperfection arises from the fact that no two human beings are alike. Yet we can have a strong relationship in spite of imperfections. Imperfections may arise from differences in perceptions, priorities, views etc. Instead of looking at these imperfections as threats to a harmonious relationship, we should understand them as natural differences that normally occur in any healthy relationship. We should focus on resolving the differences through a process of dialogue that will require some adjustments from either side.
The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person's good qualities
