Sunday Inspiration: Here it is!

“I don’t know what to tell you.
A statement is easy, and here it is:
Be yourself.
Try to matter.
Be a good friend.
Love freely, even if you are likely, almost guaranteed,
to be hurt, betrayed…
Do what you were created to do.
You’ll know what this is,
because it is what you keep creeping up to,
peering at, dreaming of.
Do it…
Try to matter.
Try to care.
And never be afraid to admit that you just don’t know,
you just don’t know how you’re going to make it.
That’s when the help shows up.”
~Tennessee Williams

    This is nice; I don’t necessarily agree with the rest of the phrase after “Love freely…” That can stand by itself.

    Love freely. Hmmmmm that is a loaded statement. It means you open yourself to potential pain and disappointment. I am sorry to say, and this is just for me, I did hurt a wonderful friend years ago. Admittedly, my own stupidity. It was a big dumb goof and it remains unforgiven. And unforgotten, on my part. In spite of several efforts to make amends. I am extremely sorry. And I have to let this go. But it will likely hang with me forever. I accept this consequence. But I do regret my dumb action. A well used phrase I have heard while on Active Duty, from 50 years ago. (I will clean it up) ” one aww crap, wipes out 10 “Atta Girls”. Love freely but maybe ?? forgive generously too.
