When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are. — Donald Miller
When we wish another person to behave a certain way, but to only be disappointed by his or her behaviors, then it is time for us to lower our own expectations. We need to let go of those expectations and to let them be. We can only do our best and to accept our own foibles and to not reflect our foibles on to another. Milton Erickson once said to a bride and groom to not give up on your faults, but instead keep them because you’re going to need them to understand your spouse’s. That’s a very powerful statement because we’re forced to understand that everyone is imperfect one way or another and that each one of us has to struggle daily managing our own imperfections. We’re all in this together because no one is without faults.
