It is so revealing when your eyes open to the truth. When you see that someone you cared about and wanted in your life for so very many years becomes someone you no longer care to have in your life. When you realize that “appearances” to them really are everything, that hurting others is really okay. Calling themselves Christian and being so righteous while making judgments about everyone else’s choices, once again reaffirms the adage “walk the walk, don’t just talk the talk.” I guess today I am feeling blessed that I have traveled the journey I have. I do not care about appearances; I care about people. I care about doing the right thing for its own sake. I care about treating people right. Not for my benefit, but for theirs. Just because “it’s the right thing to do.” (quote attributed to Lu) I am truly blessed that I have had the friends that I have, some still in my life and some not, who have helped me along this journey. I am a far better person because of them!
