Ideal Love for Your Partner

You have to view them
Like a star on TV.
Do not examine them
Under a microscope.

  2. Your words are so true, and something that very often is difficult to remember when the heat is on...and I mean the bad heat. Can I use your quote elsewhere? Pure genious.

  7. With this fundamental revelation, you are on your way to a long lasting and fulfilling 'partnership'.
    Hope she is reading this post and smiling to herself that soon and very soon...

  8. Well, Maya, strong emotions come with microscopes.

  9. Chix, thanks. I write a lot of 4-liners here. So, just watch this space.

  10. Anonymous, the point is not about the partners of TV stars. The point is that when you see your partner like a star who is literally on TV, you are not close enough to start looking for all the minute imperfections. You watch them from a 'respectful' distance and like what you see...unlike scrutinising them under a microscope.

  12. Oh, Posekyere, I forgot to say that this piece is therapy for me. I realised a personal weakness I had and wrote this to myself to address it.

  13. So true so true - wouldn't all relationships last longer if parnters were never yanked off pedestals.

    Well...microscopes are useful in discerning what makes one a star. So don't undermine its utility...

  15. Guess Who, I know you! Trust me, I've used an 'emotional microscope' in all my life, and I'm saying it is dangerous.

    You know me? You sure about that? Microscopes work when you're selective about what you're looking at! So maybe all your life, you just picked the wrong slices to focus on.
