Here is a quote I liked so much, couldn’t resist posting it on my blog:
“The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.”
– Thomas Merton
Somehow, I get the feeling I have been similarly guilty all this time. Accepting people the way they are and not as we want them to be, is a good start. And then, everyone changes and gets influenced by the company they have.
