Mr wrong might be perfect for you

03 October 2014, 14:59 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - The rap everyone always has to say about the Mr. and Ms. Wrong is how they wish they never met them or knew them, but perhaps they were good for you because through them you learned something about yourself. The fact that they were wrong for you helped you learn what is right and good for you. All types of relationship count no matter what angle you look at them from. Maybe you are the wrong and you keep dumping all the Mr. or Ms. Rights for toxic relationships.


You learn what is acceptable for you and what is not

Dating the wrong person helps you figure out where you completely draw the line. The fact that you even said no to someone so repulsive to your sensibilities shows you have standards and limits. Such people teach you how to be the boss in your life and not look back.


You get a few memoirs

I love memories because at times you just look back and laugh so hard. It may be being taken to the movies and being asked to pay for it or the exciting dinner that ended up at Kenchic with you in a gown, the list is endless but you at least have something to look back to and not want to go back to but you can at least laugh.

You re-evaluate your checklist

We are all idealists to some extent and we ‘think’ we have the right values and we would like the people we mess with to get all ticks right. We all have a list that we want our significant other to fulfill but when we encounter the person we at times take a step back and rethink our decision. The reality of things is at times not too pleasing, it can make you question whether you were on your right mind. At times tall dark and handsome is not what we need but intelligent and humorous as compared to wise and philosophical. I doubt anyone has douche-bag on their list.


You take away something new about yourself

New people bring new things with them, they bring new experiences with them. You may learn you like a certain hobby they introduced you to. Even though they pressure you into something you thought you were afraid of, you might find you do not mind it so much.

At the end of the day, you gain control of your life in terms of relationship because Prince or Princess Charming has a list and you need to work on yourself to make the cut.  You cannot have them when you are a tadpole.
