imperfections disappear

When you start to know someone, all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in their energy, recognize the scent of their skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and your body but not your heart. And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love.

—  1 Corinthians 13:8-13

When you get to know someone, all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in their energy, recognise the scent of their skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty or looks. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and your body, but not with your heart. That’s why when you really connect with a person, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.

Today I found a letter that my dad wrote to me five years ago, when I was thirteen. Dated: 8/29/11. - It was short after I ran away from home, and our family was hanging by a thread. I found myself reading it tonight, and came across my favorite piece in the letter. It states: “You are worth more that a cheap moment of self indulgence, or a careless act of youthful indifference. You are truly a diamond - brilliant and bright, shimmering in dazzling sparks of light. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise, or treat you otherwise. Demand to be treated with respect; don’t allow yourself to sell-out for cheap like a common rock that has no special value or beauty.”
-
I wish I had read this, and realized then what I realize now.
Just because certain people in this life do not see your worth, does not make you any less valuable. // If you fight with monsters for too long, you too, will become a monster. The concept of love is to fall in love with a beautiful mind, and search for a deep soul. It’s like drowning in something that leaves you breathless, but still full of life.

You can love it with your eyes and your body, but not your heart. And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear; become irrelevant.

The primary thing about this letter that strikes me, is the relevancy to it.
In my past life, I did not know my worth or my value.
I did not understand that being treated with such disrespect wasn’t normal, and when I questioned it, I believed that all men would be the same way.
Although I went through hell and back, I would not change anything from my past because that is what made me who I am today.
-
I have learned that the only reason life is fair is because it is unfair to everyone in the human race. - Although it is unfair, a lesson that I have learned through my struggles is that it is not wrong to be strong, and it’s better to be confident in who you are, rather than to conform into what society believes you should be. // I would rather be labeled the black sheep, or a bad influence for being true to myself, than be well known as the people pleaser.
I am merely a convenient scapegoat for those who do not know how to love themselves, accept themselves, and/or who do not know how to embrace their own individuality. I am an off brand species, who is rather intimidating in knowing who I am, and I wear my stains of confidence with pride.
I believe that confidence is the sexiest attribute a woman can have.
-
I am okay with being judged on my past, I don’t make a big deal out of it. People will only believe what they want to believe, and THAT is not my responsibility to change their closed minded perceptions.
My father has always been concerned with my lack of caring, or that I don’t ‘think’ about my reputation. - The truth is, I do care about my reputation, but I am not going to alter myself to fit everyone’s standards of what is right and what is wrong.
I believe that if you are true to yourself, and know your worth, the right people will be in your life. It is something I do not take lightly, and will always have a hard head about myself when it comes down to it.
I see the world in black and white, nothing more, nothing less.
-
I read a quote earlier today that said, “we fear rejection, want attention, crave affection and dream of perfection.”
I think what my dad said was true; not only for me, but for you.
