“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.
