“Love looks through a telescope;envy through a microscope.”~Josh Billings, essayist and humorist
Like the quote above says, love looks at the big picture. It encompasses the good and the bad. When you’re in a relationship, it’s a mixed bag, no matter whom you’re dating or to whom you’re married. If you switch from a telescope to a microscope, you can easily look through the lens of envy or criticism.
This doesn’t mean that when necessary, you don’t speak up and talk about how you feel if your mate does or says something that bothers you, however, putting the microscope over the majority of what bothers you about the other person is the opposite of love.
