Commuter Thoughts

When someone tries to hurt you,

it's not about you.

You don't deserve it.

It's about them.

It's about what they think about themselves, others and the world - it's skewed - and there must be a good reason why it's skewed.

When you are full - of love, joy and peace - then you are grateful for grace, understand others and forgive.

I used to wonder and question - What did I do wrong?  What's wrong with me?

Peace is knowing I'm all kinds of wrong and all kinds of right.  My intimates - and I - love and accept me anyway.

If we did not come to this world to love, then what exactly are we doing here?  No matter what happens, I choose to love.
