Somebody once told me that "Finding the right person is very hard and very wrong. It is best to be the right person for the one you love and start from there. You'll always end up disappointed when you set standards and define "RIGHT PERSON" for you...and don't rush things because God is preparing somebody for you.
You can never be perfect...the person you love can never be perfect...but both of you can be perfect through love and prayers and your love can be perfect through the both of you. But no relationship is complete without God...that's why we have marriage. It's a bond not only between you and your loved one but also with God.
Our relationships fail not because he/she is not the right person...it's because we expected too much and we decided on our own. Let God do the work, you may call it waiting time. But while you are waiting ...pray. Let God guide you always. He knows better, He knows best.
Love is not what you think it is...sometimes we mistakenly feel that our first relationship will be our last because we are overwhelmed with joy and romance and we forgot to learn the meaning of TRUE LOVE. Some are saying that love is unselfish, blind, and unconditional or simply denying oneself for the sake of someone very important in his life. Others are saying that love is immortal and can never be taken away from us. We say this phrase, "You are the most wonderful gift from God I have ever received" but after a terrible fight or sometimes even a petty quarrel we then say, "You are the biggest mistake I've ever made for my entire life!!!" Now, how do you say and spell the word L-O-V-E? Are you really deeply into it?
Nobody can tell what love really is until experience speaks and whisper right into our ears. Most of the time, this love promises like, "Forever, till death do us part", etc. would end up, "Never!" and "We should part ways, I'm no longer happy with you! My love for you is dead!" Many times we thought after having committed to someone and your trust to one another freezes down to zero degree, "He/She isn't the right one. I should probably wait for the right one to come." But the big question anyone could not answer is "Is he/she the right one? or When is the right time?" That made us stick to whom we are with. Will you always be waiting for the right person to come and right time to commit? Big YES is the answer!
Don't be in a hurry to get into a relationship because you can find love if you insist that you are already into it. Try to really understand your real feelings, to know who really you are, and what you really want in a relationship. You're right, there is no such thing as a "perfect relationship", but there's a compatible partnership that goes along with it. If you knew that you're too big to fit into a small sized t-shirt, don't give it a try. You'll probably break it and pay for the damage you have made. If you knew and felt that the relationship will not last don't go deeper into it. You'll just suffer the consequences and live like hell the rest of your life.
It's really hard to say goodbye though, but you can make it any better by just pretending you still have the same feelings. Try to let go and give yourself a chance to live life to the attention. Then you will find that you have made the right decision if all by yourself. More frequently than not, we all act hypocritical for some reasons.
We call it love when we can't leave someone and see them crying as we try to let go. We are wrong, it's just pity. We call it love when we're too attached and think that losing the one we love will somehow make us weak and unable to face the storms of life. We misunderstood; it's just that we're too much dependent to them. We call it love when we give our whole life to them, the wholeness of us and imagined that if they leave, no one would accept our past and us. We are mistaken, it's just insecurity. But no matter what the definition is, the truth still remains that love isn't something you can buy or beg. It is real and existing. You can't touch it but you can feel it in your heart. You can't find it, but it will knock before you when you least expect it to come. It can make you the happiest soul in heaven, but don't forget that it also can make you the most miserable person in the whole galaxy.
"Contentment is not the fulfillment of what you want; it is the realization of how much you already have."
