This will be a bit different from my other posts in that it is going to be more serious. Okay sort of. It will be real shit from my heart though.
I have known loss in my life more than most people have. With those losses I have come to know you have to live your own life FROM THE INSIDE OUT. You can’t live it based on what someone else wants you to be. Those people may not be in your life tomorrow. If you have allowed someone to change you, it must be from the inside and it must be for the good. The people we allow to change us for the good may not even be the best people in our outside lives but we can and should grow from our experiences with them.
The sum of who I am today, this very minute, is partly due to the people I have encountered and have chosen to learn from and have become a better me. It sounds like a very worn out cliché but I really do like me. I would like to have me as a friend.
Now that you know I like who I am, and my friends say they do, it amazes me that I am told I have to be someone else in the dating arena. I can’t be myself? WTF?
I like me.
You like me.
“Don’t be you”.
“It intimidates men”.
Should I care? Wouldn’t that be like wearing a padded, push up bra and industrial strength Spanx ? You get alone and the real you comes bustin’ right out of there. What then?
I think this pretty much sums it up: Here I am. I am blessed with some amazing people in my life who really, really love me and have made me a better person. If you want to come on along for the ride, be my guest, but you need to like me today and you have to promise to help make me a better me. There are no games. There is no bullshit. It is what it is. So where is CyberBoy when you need him?
