I at times wished I were someone else. Someone born of a wealthy family, someone whose paths are just straight and not queer like mine. This is because sometimes bills bombard your brain, deals duck your dart and you are left bereft of moments that you very much longed to have from your fantasies.
It was then that I realized that the world must balance. The person I really wished to be, really wishes to be like me. He admires my brain. He admires my art, my zeal and discipline. In my dire wishes, I forgot that he also had struggles of his own, struggles that I couldn’t bear even with all his wealth. He also had ups and downs that left my mouth aghast for thinking that his life is so prime.
I have come to understand that no one is complete in himself. No one is perfect that he or she has the best example of a complete lifestyle. We all have dots and God has given us grace, love and mercy that has made us perfect in our weakness to aid us wash out these dots. The more or less, the bigger or smaller the dots you have, the best your system is tuned to his grace which is sufficient for us. Why then choose a different inner man struggle because we loved the packaging of the outer man? Why drink expired milk at the expense of fine packaging?
Love the person you are? You have a purpose to fulfill in this world. Stay blessed.
