Honestly, in the last 4 years I have maintained an idea that our separation was temporary. I imagined myself right down the street from my daughters, just as my mother and I lived, close by each other. It seems to be the best way to raise kids; everyone living close by watching over the babies mutually.
Rhea is such an awesome woman to be with. When I am with her, I believe that everything will be taken care of. She has an air of confidence and competence, it just surrounds her. She is always beautiful, she works hard to maintain herself in a very healthy way and it’s awe-inspiring to watch. Now that Rhea has two sons, 11 months apart, she exhibits a lovely vitality that maintains who she is, separate from the kids. Rhea is one of those people that you just want to be around. Rhea is dedicated to her sister Johanna in an unusual way. Nothing on earth separates their love for each other, nothing. They have been horrible to each other, yet it is of no matter to their relationship.
Johanna’s gifts are so very different. You wish to be with Johanna because you will feel loved and completely accepted by her. That is why it is so important to be near her. There is no substitute for feeling loved like that.
All of America wants to say that “Everything happens for a reason.” I am so heartbroken right now, what could be the reason for that?
I do not think that people escaped to America so much because they were chasing “freedom”. Instead I believe that people escaped to America in hopes of economic gain. European aristocracy was so oppressive that the only means for people to have any hope to keep what they earned was to flee and escape.
I am thinking that the world is looking that way again. Once again, the wealthy are using oppression to control others and keep others from gaining any wealth.
History teaches us, but the world changes; average, everyday people are finding power with each other. Those who would oppress, chase us into corners rather than to distant shores.
I’m guessing that we are a culture that is at the top of Maslow’s hierarchy. We have conquered hunger, for the most part, and we do not know what to focus on and how to find our actualized self. But – I am telling you that actualization will NOT be found in macaroni and cheese AND endless discussions about our own comfort.
The world is NOT about us, it just isn’t. The world has it’s own agenda, we are just part of it. Our personal comfort does not even make the top 10.
So really… stop. It’s not about you, your comfort, and really, it is not even about your self actualization. The world is more…so much more.
