“i don’t know why she puts up with him.   i hope that after today’s incident,  she leaves him”

that was the conversation i had with a friend earlier today, as we discussed why some nice people end up being together with jerks.

it brought me back to a movie i had watched, and a line i’ve quoted numerous times –

“we accept the love we think we deserve”

when i first heard this, i pondered over that statement a lot… and it prompted me seeing things slightly differently.

do you agree with this statement?

in a way, a lot of how we live our lives is driven by what we think we deserve.
