Many people are hungry not for bread only, but they are hungry for ... love. Many people are not only naked for want of a piece of cloth, but they are naked for human dignity ... Homelessness is not only not having a home made of bricks, but homelessness is being rejected, unwanted, unloved, uncared for. People have forgotten what the human touch is, what it is to smile, for somebody to smile at them, somebody to recognize them, somebody to wish them well.~ Mother Teresa ~
We are not really loved until we are seen. Purely the raw form of who we are.
If I don't see you but only my expectations, assumptions, or prejudices I am not loving you.
We all need to be seen. Look at someone today. Are they really who you think they are? Or can you see them better? Love them better?
I know I need to see more clearly. Only then will I also love more dearly.
