Another step in understanding human relationships (or in popular parlance, love) Recently I have been meeting several couples and in my humblest opinion, they are most definitely wrong for each other. As a matter of fact, I couldn’t think of two people more wrong for each other. What’s worse perhaps is that I stand vindicated in the fact the two just can’t get along on most occasions and perplexed, I try to subjectively understand why and how is it that they are still together.
In the process I have tried all lines of logical reasoning from the initial phases of attraction to perhaps some other emotion, perhaps lust? And yet, honest to god, I couldn’t for the life of me understand why it was that they were a couple! So after a considerable period of mulling over this, I finally began to see what it was that made them click. For all this time, I had been analyzing this along the wrong lines. I had over-looked the simple fact that if it works, it must be doing something right…instead of looking at what was right, like all other typical humans, i was looking at what was wrong. Eventually, when I finally got down to analyzing exactly what it was that was making them click, I was witness to a few couples in crisis to finally come to terms with the reasons. They weren’t together because they were the right people for each other. For all I know, perhaps even they realize that they are not the perfect images that they might have sought for themselves. Yet, they are able to understand human relationships better than yours truly because they feel so strongly for each other that they can not only fall in love with each other’s faults but also have the strength and courage to stand beside each other and be strong in the each other’s weaknesses.
Love is a strange and strong emotion. Some find it in just one person whilst the others struggle to find it in all the people they meet in a lifetime. And love isn’t about the right people being together, it’s also about all the wrong people being together for all the right reasons!
