i know its been a while, but i’m here. living, learning, and changing.
today, let’s talk about looking for love in all the wrong places, when its staring you in the face. why is that we all claim to want someone who loves and accepts us for who we are unconditionally; then you meet said person, only to want him/her for a myriad of reasons, or you simply talk yourself out of what has the potential to be a wonderful relationship due to a mismatch of imagery (i.e. the picture in your mind and reality)!
for the ladies, most of us have someone in our lives who loves us with all our stuff. that person is probably a close friend or at the very least an acquaintance on the edge of your social circle, pining from afar. nonetheless, there they are. putting up with our temperaments, our attitudes, moods, other loves, other interests. waiting for a chance or a simple glance!
when do we grow enough to recognize the love already present in our lives as opposed seeking love in all the wrong places. i subscribe to the theory that “sometimes to get what you want, you have to do something you’ve never done!”
maybe in our quest for love and/or companionship, looking outside our box or over the self constructed walls of our hearts and minds, the love we seek to find is staring us in the face, should we choose to see with the eyes of our hearts instead of the images in our mind.
