Today: Put a bow on your head ❤
While having afternoon tea in one of our favourite cafe today, I read this sentence in the newspaper: “When I was courting my better half…”
Then I wonder, why do you call your other half your “better half”?
The allusion then was to a friend so dear that he/she was more than half a person’s being. It often refers to your spouse, whom you think is more superior in terms of quality, comparing to yourself.
I kinda like this expression. It makes us humble ourselves and embrace the fact that we are not perfect and we need “another” half to complete us, in fact, a “better half” to fill in the deficiency and make us perfect. It helps us to honor our partner in life and appreciate what he/she does to make us complete, very often out of admiration and love.
Have a great day everyone!
