What’s the story behind mismatched couples?
Why are those two together?
Everyone knows at least one couple that makes that question escape their breath. Great guy and a bi*** from hell, good mannered gal with some ill-mannered ghetto boy, beauty and beast …you just can’t understand what kind of drug or hypnosis one of them was on when they hooked up. Could it be a simple case of ‘opposites attract’ or something more?
I recently read something that kinda tried to shed some light on what really cuts:
Your perfect partner could be online right now...
What are you looking for?
Two firemen go into the forest to put out a fire. Afterward, they emerge by a steam. The face of one of them is covered in soot and the other is completely clean. Which one of them do you think will wash his face? If you think it’s the sooty guy, think again! He looks at the other man and assumes his face is also clean. Similarly, his partner looks at him and assumes his face is as sooty hence washes his face.
I think this is what happens with mismatched couples. Each one of them sees himself or herself in the face of the other. The bad spouse absorbs positive energy from the good spouse and the good spouse probably sees the dirt on the partner’s face and assumes he or she is worse and don’t deserve better. They feel sad and diminished. Maybe this is why most of us get stuck in bad relationships.
Well, there is only one solution to this: We need to look in the mirror and see ourselves in our own faces. List down your positives and focus on them. Love yourself first and believe that anyone should feel honored to walk on the same ground as you. If you really love yourself, then it’s high time you sought out the clean-faced among you.
