Love the person as they are, and not as you'd like them to be

Description

When we love or accept a person, we love them for who they are, not for what we would like them to be, represent or do in the future.

"When you love someone,
you love the person as they are,
and not as you'd like them to be."
- Leo Tolstoy

When you love someone, you love the person as they are, and not as you'd like them to be.

The key to a healthy relationship is accepting others just as they are. Don't try to change them or make them something they're not—you can only do that if you have the ability to accept them for who they are and who they will never be.

Individuality is special. It's what makes us all unique in our own way, and it's important to keep this in mind when forming relationships with people who may not be so easy to understand on the surface.

When we love someone, we want them to be happy and fulfilled—but that doesn't mean we want them to change who they are or how they live their lives. We don't want them to lose themselves because of our love for them; rather, we want them to stay true to themselves!

You can't force someone to change for you—they have to want to do it themselves. And even if they did want to change, you can't make them! You won't be able to force anyone else in your life into being who you want them to be. Instead, you should accept others just as they are and love them for who they are.

If someone is struggling with a problem in their life, try not to try to fix it yourself. Instead, let that person know that you support them and their choices—and if they ever want help with something, ask if now would be a good time!

We all have the desire to be accepted by our friends, family, and loved ones. We all want to be accepted for who we are.

But when you love someone, you love the person as they are, and not as you'd like them to be.

We all want our loved ones to accept us for who we are—and who we are is not always what meets the eye. Sometimes, yes, it might look like our love is conditional on something or someone else! But sometimes it's just because our loved one isn't as perfect as we'd like them to be.

And that's okay! It's okay for your loved one not to be perfect all of the time. It's okay for your loved one not to change when things get tough or for them not to change at all if they don't want to—that's just how people work and that's okay too!

Love doesn't depend on the future but on the present moment—which means that right now is where you should focus on loving your partner and being there for each other no matter what happens next.
