The right wrong person

I found this quote amazing. This quote is about finding someone, instead of finding someone who's fact we're looking for someone who has mistakes just like we did out mistake. And that mistakes lead two people to live in the same direction, to find each other's mate. Love how Galway Kinnell, an American Poet, expressed the words in a different way about having someone. Love all the words, especially the last line..."Let our scars fall in love"

“We’re all seeking that special person who is right for us. But if you’ve been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there’s no right person, just different flavors of wrong.

Why is this? Because you yourself are wrong in some way, and you seek out partners who are wrong in some complementary way. But it takes a lot of living to grow fully into your own wrongness. And it isn’t until you finally run up against your deepest demons, your unsolvable problems—the ones that make you truly who you are—that we’re ready to find a lifelong mate.

Only then do you finally know what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: the right wrong person—someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, “This is the problem I want to have.”

I will find that special person who is wrong for me in just the right way.

Let our scars fall in love.”
― Galway Kinnell
