Love On Your Terms: Are Your Expectations Too High?

 Do You Think You Can Change or Train Him?

All human beings have strengths and weaknesses, and it’s up to us to improve our own lives every day. But for some of us, we set our sights on “fixing” our mates rather than taking a look at ourselves in the mirror and identifying areas of improvement we can make at home.

While there is nothing wrong with encouraging your man to be the best he can be and pushing him to his full potential, realize that who he is now is also who you must accept – flaws and all. And just as you want your partner to be everything in your eyes, you should also want to be everything in his. This requires that you both work at being your best selves at all times, not just you trying to mold him into your ideal man. Having realistic expectations means realizing that no one is perfect, and you must accept your partner for who he is at this very moment rather than trying to change him into an impossible image of who you think he SHOULD be. You won’t be settling for less, you’ll be settling for better.
