All my life, I have searched for the Jimmy Choo. The one shoe that fits perfectly, amazingly, and is all I have ever wanted in my life. I have ignored all other brands of shoes just for this Jimmy Choo.
Kind of like locking myself into a certain criteria of people I am willing to date and be with, and not even considering the other types of people that I may potentially come across. By criteria, I mean race, religion, ethnicity, values, traditions, education, family, friends, and the list could just go on and on. My Jimmy Choo has always been one that was the same race, religion, values, traditions, family, and educational background as myself. For my Jimmy Choo, I forsaked all other brands of shoes. However, is this right?
While I myself don’t know the answer to that question, I do however know that there are many things any one of us should consider before deciding. What is worth fighting for in the end? Sure love is important, and in fact essential to relationships. But we cannot naively assume anymore that it is everything. Therefore what are you willing to compromise for the sake of love? Religion? Race? Values? The other brand of shoes can promise many aspects of your Jimmy Choo, but the items that it doesn’t offer, is that compromisable for the sake of love? Essentially, when considering the other brands, make sure the differences are worth fighting for, and will not wear your love out.
At the end of the day, you just never know, perhaps that other brand of shoes could be better than every Jimmy Choo you have ever dreamed of. Just know what you’re willing to compromise. J
