In Between the 'Perfects' & 'Seemingly-Perfects'

Sam: Why do I and everyone I love, pick people who treat us like we’re nothing?
Charlie: We accept the love we think we deserve.
--- The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Weird however it may be but, its an unarguable fact that we accept the love we think we deserve and quite ironically, that love most often is the kind of love that’s just not meant for us. We are a part of this mad, mad world where everyone is running after things, people, emotions that are least fitting for them. Wasting ourselves to get hold of our objects of desire, trying every tactic possible to make it work the way we want it to, going reasonably unreasonable with our lives for that one damn thing that we think ‘should’ be ours...but what do all those efforts boil down to? --- Disappointment.
Plain disappointment, simply because what is not meant for us would never be ours...no matter how hard we try.

It is indeed strange how we all are submitted to human psyche’s one black rule --- 'Perfect' things shall be taken for granted while the 'Seemingly-Perfect' things shall be adored and craved for beyond capacity.
We are somehow booted not to value the most fitting things for they find a way to us and hence, they automatically lose worth. The desirability quotient ironically stands inversely proportionate to the kind of treatment we are granted. We crave for the person’s attention who never pays attention to us, a relationship becomes an obsession where we are treated like just-another-partner, we fall in love with people who aren’t or wouldn’t fall in love with us…so on and so forth the round world keeps running round.

Lives could have been so much more simple if we were able to see through, identify and accept things that were meant only for us; that fitted best to us.  Could have spared so many broken hearts, crying eyes, disappointments, disgust, hatred, irritation, inferiority...if only, we never picked people who treated us like we were nothing!
