It has long been my challenge coming to realise that Life is NOT centered on ME. I know, YOU knew that [BEcause of course it was centered on YOU!!] but it’s taken me a bit longer to grasp.
Longer still has been coming to understand deep in my bones that NOT everyone agrees with or even thinks like ME. I can see from Here and Now that I might have caught some clues along the way...
Alas, I did NOT.
Actually, early on I can see that BEcause I was NOT amidst the like-minded I made the decision that I was “wrong” and conformed, as much as I possibly could muster, to those around me.
I know it didn’t take and that ultimately I chafed and irritated those others, but it has taken far longer to feel sufficient even when I am standing alone.
It is, frankly, so much nicer to BE among others who think like and cooperate with me.
I am refreshed and encouraged by that.
However, it happens less often and probably even less than that since I sort of steer clear of troublesome topics and areas as best I can.
Knowing that NOT everyone agrees with me makes it easier to BE silent.
And sometimes it can feel lonesome here…
I love you, Currie
