Acceptance Greater Than Love
Two people loving each other is not enough to sustain a long-term relationship. Love is important, but of even greater importance is that each accepts the other as they are and not for how they wish them to be.
For the inexperienced person in love, that perspective is not always understood. Often the inexperienced rush into relationships thinking whatever omissions they or the other person lacks, will be overlooked, or worse, that they can change the other person into conforming to their liking. That is a recipe for disaster.
A relationship of mutual love that is not also based on mutual acceptance, is just lust waiting to end unexpectedly.
In due time and with enough experience, a mature person will come to understand the right match for them is a contained within a complex arrangement of human nature. Their expectations are tempered under those circumstance and perhaps that is how a great love relationship should be formed. That's how my marriage is between Sherry and me.
On Friday night, our granddaughter by telephone said, "Hi" and "Bye" to Sherry and I as we spoke to her. This is the first time she used the telephone to say those words to us. She's almost 18 months old and she is a pretty smart kid!
