So, did you also realize you could love? You could forgive?
Me, I tend to like to make sure I have all the information I need before any movie starts and then it isn't a movie, but the Truth. (Go go Gemini moon!)
I dunno... you got me thinking about Breitenbush and how I would get lost and I would say, to the woods, to no one, just say, "I'm lost." I would wait a second. And no one would help me out. No one heard me. No one came to save me. And then I would remember I could save myself.
That happened a lot the first two or three days.
I liked this: "Recognize your value in a Family & you recognize your value in society"
I read this book where the author discussed the difference between how American/European children are raised vs most cultures of color. Euro-American children are raised, accordingly, to think about their role in society. They are raised to know social rules. However, in cultures of color, children are raised to know the rules of their family -- family comes first. I am definately a product of this and sometimes, with my white friends, it causes cultural clashes (especially with the more... suburban ones) because they can't understand my position and I can understand their position and my position and STILL declare them wrong, rude, disrespectful, etc. Usually, they cannot hear outside of the social conditioning, but that is not my problem.
I'm... I'm glad you found out the truth of the missed cue-communication. You are loved. You are wanted. And... you did have an adventure, eh?

oh yeah, i guess i did realize i could love
interesting comment about the white/versus "color" upbringings
i was having an imaginary conversation yesterday about how i don't often concern myself with the happening of events in my life
except for what they mean existentially (for me)
how they happen basically takes care of itself
but the meaning is what i concern myself with
and how aligned i am with what i want/need, etc..
this is strange to most people
but it's the same thing
from the other side
communication is fun, eh?
(hey, thanks for reading along and commenting with me!)
