So I’m posting for a friend…yeah, that’s it…a friend.
See this guy hasn’t been in love in quite some time and quite frankly isn’t even sure he knows what love is.
He knows it when he thinks about his kids…that kind of love is crystal clear and unquestionable.
But when it comes to women, well…let’s just say this friend is confused.
This guy remembers what it was like when he was a burgeoning human man…otherwise known as a teen…and still recalls the absolute joy that simply holding a girls hand brought. The pure, unadulterated feeling of comfort that the gentle touch of a woman brought him.
And here’s where our story goes off the rails. This friend then proceeds, in a nutshell, to completely screw up his love life in a series of bad relationships, bad choices, bad drinking…and just generally bad stuff.
All sense of innocence is lost at a very early age. The concept of love…that mature relationship between a man and a woman, not to mention the ability to experience that wonderful sense of innocence…was lost somewhere along the line.
I won’t bore you with the details…suffice it to say, it’s probably a DSM-V level dysfunction.
But I have hope for this friend. I believe his ability…his innate desire for the purity of an innocent love between a man and a woman still resides somewhere deep within him.
If my friend is listening, I say this: Be honest. Be fearless. Be of service. If you can do those things, things will happen the way they are supposed to.
Thank you my friend…I enjoyed our chat…
