Day 312

I have a theory. A lot of relationship stress is caused not by one person’s imperfection but by the other person’s expectation for perfection. I don’t mean to say that the first person is never in the wrong, because that’s just not the case. But often the problem is that the second person has an expectation and when that first person doesn’t meet it there is disappointment and frustration. That causes strife in relationships. As I’ve said before, I think disappointment is one of the largest sources of Heartbreak. So there are three things that can solve the problem. The first person can meet the second person’s expectations, the second person can lower their expectations, or the second person can forgive and realize that the first person will never meet their expectations 100%. What do you think the answer is?

Love you!
