Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
I have some friends who don’t believe there are any men/women left worth bothering with. Men or women with character & integrity – not just smarts or looks or money. I get it – trust me, life can be really tough sometimes. Of late, I have even battled getting a little jaded & questioning it myself. But I cannot let me go there. I just can’t.
I do deep-down-believe-it to be otherwise. It’s true that these days a lot of folks are only lovers of themselves – going around sticking their IV in people to get what they want. Not caring about actually adding something to someone’s life. But there are still some of us out there that have integrity & honor & a genuine desire to treat someone well & crazy-to-say – actually receive it in return. Don’t give up if it’s in your heart to have it.
Just make sure you are OK with you first, so you actually have something to offer other than baggage. A good relationship is one where the two of you are a gift to each other.
Remember, it is impossible to give what you don’t first possess. Marinate on that one…
Much love y’all & sweet, sweet hope,
