If They Can Not Handle The Worst Then They Do Not Deserve The Best

“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.”
― Quote by Marilyn Monroe

None of us are perfect.

I am sure that some of us like to think we are perfect, though its through our flaws that we find out who we really are. It is through our flaws that we find out who really loves us, for if a person still loves us despite our bad points, then you know that they truly know the real you and will truly stand by you.

Love is a funny thing. It comes in all shapes and sizes, all rivers of life, all shades of colour. Some love is unconditional, some is all powerful, some is intense, some romantic, some parental, some friendly...

Though one thing is for certain. For someone to truly love you, they must see the real you, and love you for exactly who you are, for if a person can not handle you at your worst, with all your flaws, they certainly do not deserve the best of you.

Everything in this post is my own. Quote above by Marilyn Monroe

This post is super super true. I am lucky that my fiance loves me for me, no matter what. Some people are too shallow and only love people on their good days, which isn't a good relationship

It's a good quote. I think we have to remember that it works both ways and if we want others to accept us for who were are, we must also accept others in the same way, warts and all. There are too many people who approached life with the "This is me - take me or leave me" attitude and then expect other people to somehow have no faults.

That quote is very true. You cant live with rose tinted glasses when it comes to love

Explains why I spend so much time single lol - seriously though, it makes a lot of sense though may people at their worse really are too much to take

I really love this post. I am one lucky woman to have found a man that loves me for who I am no matter what.

I couldn't agree more! One of the things I've always had a low tolerance for is fair weather friends.
