Quote of the Day

You must allow everyone the right to exist in accordance with the character he has, whatever it turns out to be: and all you should strive to do is to make use of this character in such a way as its kind of nature permits, rather than to hope for any alteration it, or to condemn it offhand for what it is. This is the true sense of the maxim-Live and let live.

Arthur Schopenhauer

  1. I am slowly learning this. I always want to “fix” somebody, knowing damn well I need to shut up and worry about fixing myself. lol I do it from a good place but being on the receiving end of unwarranted advice, I know that it can be annoying sometimes. So thanks for the reminder. It humbles me whenever I get reminders like this.

      1. Yup…that is so true. Now if only we can figure this out in relationships. lol I think romantic relationships are the hardest because there’s almost an expectation to change the other person purposefully which typically lends itself to so many issues. That’s a whole other story though. lol

      2. When it comes to me and romantic relationships, I wouldn’t have an expectation to change you. If I like you then I like YOU, not what I expect you to be for or to me. Yes we all continue to grow but if we are on the same wavelength, then we grow individually and together. Whenever I do meet the love of my life I would not want to change her because I know she will bring a light to my life that I have never seen. I can tell you what I want but what if she has something better.

      3. True true…but sometimes, folks have a certain expectation when it comes to that light…or that that light will always be on and everyone has a dimmer.

      4. My job is to not abuse that light. When you appreciate something you nurture it. You tend to it with care. I don’t have any expectations. I learned a long time ago not to put someone on a pedestal they didnt earn. I love as is not as I wish. Love is absolute. Real love has no expectations. It just is. If that make sense πŸ˜’πŸ˜’lol
