Do you have the right partner in your life?
And if you think you do, does he compliment you?
Or, and, do you think he complements you?
In the morning as you are awaking, with the webs of sleep still disappearing from your mind, does he tell you, “Darling, you are beautiful!” (compliment). Or, when you can’t figure out if the word in the phrase, “the boat was in the lake” is correct, or “the boat was on the lake” should be the right preposition? And very nicely (with a loving tone of voice, rather than laughing AT you) she tells you “Vincent, you seem to get confused with these two words when you write, but not when you speak them. Therefore, before you write them speak them in your mind and you will find the right one to write” (complement).
I was idealistic in my younger years (I think I still am) and I wanted everything to perfection. I could not find the right woman and kept on searching….but when I met Victoria (on the Internet) I knew I had found the woman of my dreams because she said to me, “I need a man (not, I like a man) that will love me, take care of me, keep me enchanted for the rest of my life…….. I want it all!”
Yes, after I read her profile I knew the chances were great that she was “The One.” The key words in her statement were NEED, and I WANT IT ALL. The word need indicated that Victoria’s passion had come to the surface of her mind and passion is very attractive to me. The words I want it all didn’t scare me, on the contrary, as a philosopher of romance I know that when someone is in need and wants it all it is a combination that indicates that this person is also prepared to give it all. And, since I said earlier that I am an idealistic man and as such I seek perfection; and perfection is also in the need of seeking for all… Well, now you can see why I couldn’t resist the opportunity of meeting the “Interesting lady.”
Later on I realize that in those days, what I was really looking for was not “A lady to compliment me” but instead I was looking for “A lady to complement me”.
I was right following my feelings and perceptions; as our natures complement each other and our lives get to be happier every day, the melody that takes place between us, brings on us the need to pray and thank our Maker for our wonderful life together.
As this complement takes place in your life you get to compliment your spouse or partner without any effort on (is it in?) your part, and that is a wonderful way to live.
Please look in your life for complement and not so much for compliment, for as complements take place compliments automatically appear.
