Finding perfection in the imperfections

Enduring each other in a loveless life becomes more of a liability. The key is to never give up on each other no matter what challenges life may throw.

Finding perfection in the imperfections

By Anitta Bejoy
There's no recipe for marital bliss; neither is there a relationship that is perfect. The charm of a relationship lies in the highs and lows of our lives. When we decide to look beyond the imperfections, life becomes a tad easier, altering our relationships for the good.

At times, we make decisions in life that breaks our partner, emotionally alienating them from us. At times, in a fit of rage, scornful words are exchanged, words those break the very essence of living together. Enduring each other in a loveless life becomes more of a liability. The key is to never give up on each other no matter what challenges life may throw.

Forgiving doesn’t come easy. It requires a big heart and immense courage to forgive first and make up. Prolonging forgiveness unarguably causes pain on oneself. Unless one steps up to resolve the issues and takes a decision not to quit, the relationship is to suffer a tumultuous turn of events.

Love never gives up; and its faith, hope, and patience never fail(1Corinthians 13:7). Finding perfection in all the imperfections of your life is an arduous task. Whenever you feel like giving up on your spouse, reflect on why you began your journey in the first place. The Mighty One has never given up on us, why then should we give up on our spouses.

Make significant, positive changes in our attitude towards the other. Disregard the initial pretences of ignorance from your partner. Work together to make it work. Most of all, have faith. "Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all."(2Corinthians 4:16-17)
