A glass is half filled for some and for some it is half empty; it depends on how we take things in our life. Some of us see others under a very close, introspection, wherein we tend to see the flaws in others very clearly and then we become the judge and declare the said person as with flaws and drop him. In a relationship, it should be the shortcomings and the inability of one's self that needs to be under scrutiny of your own eye.

We should try to overcome our own shortcomings, to have a better attitude towards life and people around us. If we can overcome them, that's well and good. But if we can't, then don't blame others for the reciprocal of your own shortcoming in a relationship. Accept your own faults and be honest with yourself, at least.
