They say love is blind…but it isn’t.

Standard

blind

To intentionally lie and hurt those to whom we profess  love, is wrong.   Yet, to intentionally hurt and lie to *anyone*….not just the people we love…but *anyone* is wrong.    Perhaps the  people that do this come into our lives so that the universe can test our strength and cause us to question ourselves .

 Perhaps they are here to teach us lessons about the true nature of love, because if someone mistreats you in that way, lies to you…takes advantage of you…misleads you….and you still love them after it is all over, you know that what you feel for them is real love…barring unhealthy dependency issues and the rest of it.        

In contrast, these things can highlight our drive to cherish those who are sincere and loving,  and cause us to have a deeper appreciation for them…. OR, we  might cross paths with these people  so we can reach out and touch  the hearts and souls of those that choose to malign us.  Perhaps we are being called upon to gently  help them find their loving paths to make this a better, more loving planet.

They say love is blind…but it isn’t. Love is perfect sight. Love is the ability to see a person, I mean really see him-his strengths, his weaknesses, his flaws, all his past triumphs and mistakes-and view that person not as the world says you’re supposed to see him, but as you see him…..as that special someone you know you will always embrace, body and soul, no matter what anyone else says or thinks.

  1. The closing message rang true for me. Also those who wish to stir trouble mostly a-holes with some unpleasant agenda usually fixated around themselves or some misguided belief.

    Good to chat:)

  2. Thanks, Don. I appreciate your comments. I do not believe that love is this idealized notion of someone else’s perfection. I know I’m not perfect and thank goodness there are people in this world who love me enough to overlook and/or forgive my shortcomings. Someone *is* trying to stir up trouble and that is exactly how I view this. I love my friend and will stand by him no matter what anyone else says. That is what true friendship is.

    All the best,

  3. Stacy,

    I learned that it doesn’t matter if you love completely, accept the flaws, wake up every morning happy that you are still in love. When it goes bad, it doesn’t matter in the end that you become everything that they hate. That things said are not true..You just accept the real for them and what was real for you..and that it wasnt the same thing at all.I can’t change what people want to think about me, in the end. I know that i have to realize that i believed love was sweet or negate my life. Life just goes on.

    • Thankfully, it does. I am so happy to know you hauled yourself out of that garbage can and that you can now enjoy your life. I just try to take things a day at a time and appreciate what I have while I have it….and to let go when I need to let go.
