“A principal thing to write in the notebook of our minds in the area of human relationships is: When people insist on perfection or nothing, they get nothing. When people insist on having what they daydream as a perfect relationship, they will end up having no relationship at all. When people waste the time they could have – by screaming for more – they will have no time at all. The waste of what could be, by demanding what cannot be, is something we all have lived through in certain periods of our lives, but which we need to put behind us with resolve.”
What Is A Family? Edith Schaeffer
I can’t begin to count the number of times I have had expectations for things and when it hasn’t turned out just as I would have hoped or expected, I am completely disappointed! This is one of the things that has been so helpful to me through the years since reading it ~ if I insist on perfection or nothing, I get nothing! This is something that I have to continually remind myself of and will probably have to put into practice today!
Blessings on your day ~ and the upcoming weekend too! ♥
