Good morning, good morning!
Before we get into today’s topic, I have some nonsense I was thinking about recently that I wanted to share with you. I watched Encanto recently (this part isn’t nonsense because Encanto is worth ALL the hype. And the songs? They’ll be stuck in your head for sure.) One of the characters, Dolores, has really good hearing, but no glasses. (Here’s where the nonsense comes in). If you wear glasses, you know that’s a flex. I mean sure, she’s got a supernatural ability but still. Good hearing and no glasses is a flex because when one of your senses isn’t 20/20 there’s usually another one that steps up. I wear my glasses all the time because without them I can’t see for shit. ( I can, everything’s just really blurry and I have to keep getting close to things in order to see). That said, I was thinking about which of my senses stepped up. For the longest I thought it was my hearing, but I realized the other day that my hearing’s not Daredevil quality so it’s not that. My sense of smell is slightly better but not spectacular. My sense of touch has gotten better as I no longer be picking up bull shit as much as I used to, but you know what my best sense is? It’s my sense of taste. Like, why? Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate that I can taste the absence of love in food, but like how would that help me in a fight?
Anyway, love vs. insecurity. A person who loves you, cares about you. It’s as black and white as that. This isn’t to say that perfect people exist, because everybody’s flawed, but not everybody deals with their flaws the same. Some people try and do better with those flaws because they want to be better, and some people in their not wanting to see other people get better than them because they aren’t willing to do the work on the flaws themselves, work to bring people down instead. Insecurity operates like the latter. Your significant other is the person who’s going to have the most access to you than anybody else does. The hope is that they pour into you just as you pour into them, but that’s not always the case. Be smart about who you grant that level of access to because not everybody wants to pour into you.
Have a lovely day and as always remember to
hold your peace, mind your business and drink water
