Thomas Merton

The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.
-Thomas Merton

I couldn't agree more. This past school year, I found myself changing a guy in order to make him "worthy" of dating. At the end of the day, we were not right for each other. He was wild and crazy while I was calm and reserved. We're polar opposites (and although I do believe that opposites attract... in this case, we were too opposite). I tried to keep him from partying so much. He tried to make me go out more. I was unhappy with the whole situation. Now we're friends and everything is good. I accept him for who he is as he does for me.

p.s. I'm going to start posting once a day (this will probably start next week) simply because I have had a lot on my mind lately. I just haven't had time to sit and type it all out. In the upcoming weeks, I'll have much more time on my hands. Also, I am going to be making some changes to the blog. Thanks for following. Keep the feedback coming. :)
