I asked for……A poem

20 Feb

I asked for Strength

And was given Difficulties to make me strong.

I asked for Wisdom

And was given Problems to solve.

I asked for Prosperity

And was given a Brain and Brawn to work.

I asked for Courage

And was given Danger to overcome.

I asked for Love

And was given Troubled people to help.

I asked for Favors

And was given Opportunities.

I received nothing I wanted.

I received everything I needed.

The Wrong Kind of Right….

1 Jan

Andrew Boyd in Daily Afflictions

“We are all seeking that special person who is right for us. But if you have been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there is no right person, just different flavours of wrong.

Why is this? Because you yourself are wrong in some way, and you seek out partners who are wrong in some complementary way. But it takes a lot of living to grow fully into your own wrongness. It isn’t until you finally run up against your deepest demons, your unsolvable problems, the ones that make you who you truly are, that you are ready to find a lifelong mate. Only then do you finally know what you are looking for.

You are looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: the “right” wrong person, someone you lovingly gaze upon and think ‘This is the problem I want to have’.
