No one is perfect.
I’m gonna bet that you’ve heard that phrase before. Everyone has, or should have heard it.
I have learned a lot over the past few weeks that people just aren’t perfect. It’s a shocking realization! No matter how perfect you think you are, sorry, but ya just aren’t.
People let you down; even your closets friends. You may think you know someone so well, and that nothing could ever come between you.
Let me share with you my sixteen years of wisdom. Friendships strengthen when you don’t expect the other to be perfect. I’m not saying think the worst of this person, so that you are pleasantly surprised that they’re actually nice! I’m saying, don’t set your expectations so high that no one can teach them.
And then again, some people are different and you need different expectations for them.
What I’ve learned is that you need to be the best you can be, and help others as much as you can without shoving them around and telling them that everything you think is right, and so on. Be encouraging, but let them find their own way.
As the Bible says, “Why do you care so much about the spam in your brother’s eye when you have a hog in your own?” Or something like that.
Sorry… not sorry. Just a little Adventures in Odyssey quote for y’all.
Anywho, I hope I have gotten my point across without too much confusion. Have a wonderful week!
