I’m having a tough day. A good day, but a tough day emotionally. I feel like a got hit by a bus. An early bedtime for me tonight.
I’ve been thinking a lot today about relationships. They’re hard. Sometimes I try to go it alone because it feels easier and safer. That’s not a good choice, Pam.
I always go back to something Fred Rogers said. He really knew how to get to the truth of things, didn’t he? Here it is:
When we love a person, we accept him or her exactly as is:
the lovely with the unlovely,
the strong with the fearful,
the true mixed in with the facade,
and, of course,
the only way we can do it is by accepting ourselves that way.
