“There’s a difference between really loving someone and loving the idea of [them]. “
- Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl)
So many of our relationships fail because we insist on seeing them as we want to see them, rather than seeing them for what they truly are. Stop trying to make your partner (and your partnership) into what you expect them to be and take a deep dive into reality.
That is where you will discover what you truly need out of the people you love, and what you want from life and love in general.
