When we are starving, we just eat anything we can put our hands on regardless of whether we like it or not. Not only that, but we also find it tasty and enjoy every bite. Similarly, when we are freezing, we pick anything to put on, even if the colour and design do not match our taste at all. And we indulge ourselves in the warm feeling wrapping us.
I hope in relationships we’re wiser. Needing someone should not make us accept any passer-by just because we miss the feeling of being with someone. S/he is not a tasteless meal or a vulgar jacket we have to endure for a short while and then throw away. After being filled and warm, we will open our eyes to that fact that this is not actually what we want. And that would be unfair to them and to us.
Fasting and patience are good, you know!
