“We come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.” – Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie is one of my favorite celebrities because of her substance. There is much more to her than her beauty and I’ve enjoyed watching her blossom and evolve over time.
I’m not saying that she’s perfect; I’m only saying that she has substance and I like her style. I just love the way she handles her business.
Now, regarding this quote. I just love it because it is a reminder that we will not find a perfect person! At one point or another I’m sure we’ve all had an unreasonable list of qualities that we wanted in our mate, but this quote helps us to be balanced.
She reminds us that our mate will not be perfect, but he or she will be perfect for us. The world may not understand our mate, but we will understand him or her perfectly. Everyone may not get him or her, but we will get him or her and will support them 100%.
This quote simply reminds me that in order to find love I must be realistic and not critical.
