Daily Afflictions…

The truth is, none of us are easy to date, deal with, or please all the time, and after reading a few of Danielle Steele’s book I’ve really come to appreciate this passage. They might be fiction but she tells the stories as they would have happened in real life….

“We’re all seeking that special person who is right for us. But if you’ve been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there’s no right person, just different flavors of wrong. Why is this? Because you yourself are wrong in some way, and you seek out partners who are wrong in some complementary way. But it takes a lot of living to grow fully into your own wrongness.
And it isn’t until you finally run up against your deepest demons, your unsolvable problems—the ones that make you truly who you are—that we’re ready to find a lifelong mate. Only then do you finally know what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: it’s got to be the right wrong person—someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, “This is the problem I want to have.”

I will find that special person who is wrong for me in just the right way.

Andrew Boyd, Daily Afflictions: The Agony of Being Connected to Everything in the Universe.

This is a relatable and true quote! At the end of the day, no one is perfect, and especially in terms of relationships, you will never find the perfect person who is 100% perfect all the time. I really liked this so thanks for sharing 🙂

Yes, you are right. There is an old saying that the thing we love most in a person when the love is young will become, over time, the thing we most dislike about the person. I like the comment above about seeking divine love. It is true. If we have divine love, we are more loving to the people around us. Blessings!

Very True at one level Kinya!

But once we go deeper we realise no earthly relation can ever fully satisfy us. We are ultimately looking for love divine. But once we have that love in our hearts other loves become fulfilling too 😊💖

That’s a beautiful quote. Wow. Also, Daniel Steele is a fantastic writer . I haven’t read her books in a while but since I’ve been looking for a good read, I might be adding some to my library.
Have a lovely weekend Kinya n
