Yes, I'm Looking ...

I'm looking for love, acceptance, understanding, commitment, validation. I know that's a lot.

I'm looking to be respected for who I am and understood for who I am from all I met. Then I can move in to more permanent things like love and commitment and loyalty between two individuals. These emotions would validate who I am, who I know I am.

I'm not perfect. I am a work in progress. If I can receive respect and love I can grow and complete that 'work in progress' and become a full person, a whole person.

I wouldn't have to look over my shoulder or wonder what is awaiting me, cause with respect and love, understanding and commitment ... one can overcome all obstacles and grow and shine.

Yes, Coffeemate ... I'm looking and gaining from within too. A building block in my development.

G4E, you're amazing. Thank you.

Begin by love , accepting, understanding, committing, validating within yourself. We all have to find these things in ourselves to see and accept them from others.<br />
<br />
The wonderful thing about obtaining them within us first is that we then don't have to rely on someone else to give them to us. <br />

Always remember God loves and accepts you just for being you with all the inperfections. Don't be afraid to be who you are on the inside. Bring that beauty out for the world to see.

You are so right my friend. One step at a time, one day at a time. I'll never be perfect ... and I could never feel like I was. Thanks for being on my journey pafl1950.

Oh, I'm reminded every day. A work in progress.

Just remember no-one is perfect:)
