Have you sometimes looked at a couple and thought, “I wonder how that person could be with that person?” You might have thought one of the partners ugly/unfunny/morose/stupid etc. Well, I have realised that such superficial comparisons and judgments based on first impressions are never correct. First of all, one never knows what is going on in their homes. The unfunny/morose person could be the life and soul of the home. Second, it is never the superficial things that attract people to each other- it is their hearts. A kind but a ugly man might attract a beautiful woman. I have realised that sometimes despite the attractive packaging, what is inside someone’s heart is what matters. While looks and other external things like fame and fortune might fade, one has to live with that person day in and day out. Only a deep attachment of the heart can enable that. Never judge a book by the cover, as they say!
