"When we fall in love with people, we fall in love with how they see the world." That's something I've been unconsciously thinking recently albeit in different terms. Was talking to a friend of mine few days ago - "Oh I kinda want to be with someone whom I admire, how they work, how they talk, how they handle things, the way they have 'thoughts' on things".
A bit of context is that I've been shrouded in doubts recently. I'm talking to someone with whom as time goes by, I'm not sure we connect in terms of the jokes. I barely laugh with her [while I've told myself that I want to laugh a little more]. I'm not even sure I enjoy texting with her or her text is something I really look forward to have every day. On the other hand, I feel she accepts me for who I am.
In the end, it's the question of the 'choosing well' - Can I stick to that. Probably still something unanswered for me which always confuses me as it's hard to know if we "choose well" or not on this current day, but it will be clearer in hindsight.
I think people dont know themselves well because it's hard to can’t read the labels from inside the jar.
“Isn’t the type of plant you grow contingent on what kind of seed you plant?”
So true. To expand on this further, it depends on how we water and nurture that plant and is a great metaphor for how we can water, nurture and pour into our relationships with others. Uniqueness should be seen, valued and celebrated.
Wow! Great insights! I’m going to reread this every quarter because I don’t feel like I’ve internalized these lessons yet
