Agree or Disagree: Love Me At My Worst
I was running through some love quotes recently and spotted the famous quote by Marilyn Monroe talking about what she needs in a partner.
I'm not so sure I agree with this and wanted your opinions!
Here's the quote below: “I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle.
But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.” I partially agree with this.
I think that yes, the one you love should whole-heartedly support you through the best of times and the worst of times, but should you be subjecting them to "your worst!?"
For example, what if one of your biggest pitfalls is that you're a horrifically jealous person? You know your partner is faithful but just because you have a tendency to be incredibly jealous, you subject them to your fits of yelling and crying and accusing them of things you know aren't true. Shouldn't you be working, out of respect to your partner, on improving those habits instead of just asking them to live with it?
So yes, they should love you always, but you should also be working to improve your worst parts, not just making your partner put up with it. You should be growing together to become the best partners and people you can be! Am I looking into this too deeply? What do you guys think?
