I would think again if I were you!
Typically, in any relationship, we generally seek to receive 100%. Rightfully so. I mean, who goes into any relationship expecting to receive anything less than 100%. We all believe we are worth receiving 100% so we therefore, expect it. Now, whether we are willing to give 100% is another topic. Let's be honest, we all expect more than we are willing to give at times.
Although we seek to receive the 100%, we are typically only going to receive about 80% of what we need from our partners in a good and healthy relationship and mainly if we are with the person we are destined to be with. If you are receiving that 80%, then obviously we are lacking 20%.
Consider this, if we are pursuing someone the best bet is to find someone who is as close to 100% of satisfying our needs. But, as stated earlier, most will max out at 80%. But what is important is that we get the best 80% possible of that person. Meaning, the 20% that we will lack needs to be something that we can live without.
Once we are in a relationship with that person, and the 20% starts nagging us as if it belongs in the 80% then it begins to look very appealing. Or, if we are in relationship and the 80% begin to decrease and drop down to 60%, 50%, 30% and so forth then again, the 20% begins to look very appealing.
If we decide to leave the 80 to pursue the 20 we are therefore putting ourselves in position to pull 80 out of a 20 which is essentially impossible!! Have you ever tried to purchase $80 worth of product with only $20? Exactly. So why do we do that when we are in relationships?
The end result will be regret. That is, if we decide to get rid of the 80 for the 20. Now, if you never had an 80 or 90 or so forth...then maybe we need to reconsider being in a relationship that we are not getting what we need. Just a thought.
Work at your 80%. If your partner is less than 80% of what you need, evaluate if the person is worth trying to get them to a point that you are comfortable with.
As always...Show Love!
