Often, our relationships become an unrealized quest for what is perfect, unfettered, and free of flaws. We expect our partners, our friends to avoid missteps and to be magical mind readers. These secret expectations play a sinister part in many of the great tragedies of our lives: failed companionships, dissipated dreams, abandoned careers, outcast family, deserted children, and discarded friendships.
We readily forget what we once knew as children: our flaws are not only natural but integral to our beings. 
Imperfection and excellence are intertwined. There has to be a joy in our pain, strength in weakness, courage in compassion, and power in forgiveness
