I have just had this thought traveling around in my head today. It was put there by a friend on here. He told me how he felt the first time in his life he can call himself a man. Also this is something he said a man was "To be a man requires a lot of responsibility and a true awareness of the world around someone - most people are too stuck on themselves to see anything but who they are. They're too stuck in their box to grow up... sad." Doesn't this statement just ring true. I have been talking to a number of people lately about having character and what it means. It means to grow up, to become the women and men we need to be. I want to finally grow up, own what is mine and get rid of the rest. Get rid of the pains of childhood, the unfairness of friendships in my life, and now the baggage of divorce, to own my part in this and move on. To give myself in wholeness to this earth and do some healing, to help those around me and help them on their journey. Thank you my new friend for opening a new area in my brain and heart. I am so thankful for those here on DS.
