Day 29. Finding the right relationship can be difficult. Some people really want a partner and some people just aren't ready for a committed relationship. You can't force a round peg in a triangle shape. The object is not to settle, but to find someone who wants the same things you do. Don't spend your time on someone that may not progress the way you want. Especially, when they tell you up front they aren't ready for a relationship. See them for who they are not the potential you see in them. Finding the right person takes time. It's important to find out what people are about. That means spending enough time getting to know them and understanding how they move. When we first date someone, no one is themselves. We want to impress. We do things at the beginning of the relationship that you usually don't do in your day to day living. We can't help it. Once you past the honey moon stage you will start to see the real person, and can you deal with that person who starts to appear? The more comfortable we become with someone the more our true self emerges.
What's on my mind. Being judgemental. It's easy to do, but not fair to anyone. The funny thing about life is we can plan all we want, but life has a way of throwing us in another direction. When that happens to a person the worst thing that someone else could do is judge them. God warns us that how we judge people will be the same way he judges us. In the quest to changing this upside down world we need to work on not judging. The very thing we judge someone else about could be the space we end up in. We need to be more understanding and to provide more support. The challenge is to not judge, but to be more understanding. Today I will leave you with a verse.
“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.
