We continue our discussion on the social construct of the perfect relationship, and how we measure others against the often strict criteria of the perfect person. The aim of this discussion is to help us shift the way we see relationships.
It is time to start looking at our partner for they really are, not who we think they are or what we want them to be.
Along with mission trailblazer and integrative healer, Sameer Charles and The Love Alchemist, Sumaya Hoosain aim to teach us a new concept of looking at the relationship as being good enough and not perfect. A relationship where one is treated with love, respect, affection and commitment.
A real relationship is one where realistic expectations are in place, where partners meet each other’s deeper needs and not superficial wants.
Perhaps the imperfections found in a partner are the catalysts needed to encourage personal and couple growth and development.
