Quote from a man who gets it

"You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before, she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect -- you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break -- her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there." -Bob Marley

And vice versa. It has been my experience that the most important thing is to see the other person clearly and decide what you can live with and what is a deal breaker, but don't project some image on to the other that is not the other, because that is the road to disappointment and worse. I love Bob Marley's I Don't Want to Wait In Vain For Your Love (especially the Annie Lennox version).

Was this just something you read that resonated or is there something more immediate and personal going on behind the passage?

No ulterior motive. Just something I read that I liked.

Aaaah, love Marley. That's well said - now why is it so hard to find? :)
