Fucked Up

It’s not about self-improvement, it’s about acceptance.

I am imperfect.

I make big mistakes.

I am judgemental and cruel.

I do the best I can and still fuck up.

Acceptance and Understanding

Any fool can know.  The point is to understand.

In any real relationship there comes a point where the past raises its ugly head, and that’s where things get complicated.  The problem is that if the ugly past is not accepted and understood, then the future is going nowhere except into a slow-motion train wreck.

What is needed is real acceptance and understanding of the simultaneous past / present / futures.  For without that there is no point in continuing any relationship.

What is acceptance, and what is understanding?  There is a big difference between reluctant acceptance ~ which is what most people descend to ~ and true honest understanding.

To reach the nirvana of true and honest understanding, there must first of all be true honesty.  And, in this life true honesty is as rare and fleeting as a double rainbow.

I have never known real honesty in a relationship.  Perhaps excepting now.

Christmas Cruise

I asked my girl to go on a Caribbean cruise this Christmas She said no.  How does that work out?

naked

It may be a silly thing, but I do not like to be a borrower.

So I just paid off my mortgage, and my credit cards now have a zero balance.

My clothes are fresh and shiny.

Now I am going to walk naked on the beach.

morality

Never forget there are three types of people in your life…

I’ve just got back from the gym, tanning booth, massage, sauna, manicurist…

It all seems morally wrong.

But I have found a charity ~ and it’s to do with helping women.

It is fucking amazing what you can get for money.

Funny how all that seems worse.

I think I’ll take a trip to Tibet and learn some real yoga.
