I mean, I guess it does literally, but figuratively, this phrase is false. While there are some families out there that are definitely close and tight, I’ve always believed that this phrase kind of makes friendship something that is on the backburner or side. However, there are a lot of things that you need to consider when you’re looking at the bigger world of what “family” actually means.
One of the biggest problems that I have is that I am a superhero. Well, I have a superhero complex. I want to save and help everyone. And sometimes, I do that at the risk of myself. I know – there are a lot of people will tell you that you should be willing to lay down your life for those you love, and in some cases that is totally true, but I also want to tell you something very important that I have found out recently – it is never wrong to save yourself.
Yes. I know, I went silent for a bit – there were a few disasters in there, including the fact that Court and I broke up. I will not get into it on here – but let’s leave it at the fact that our baggage didn’t match, and it just didn’t work out. And that’s okay. Time will heal.
That being said, I’ve been going back to Bible Study on Wednesday nights, and we’ve been talking about Progressive Christianity and what it looks like. What are the main premises of this thing that I’ve devoted my life to? It’s quite a unique thing, really – and I’ve been loving the conversations with these wonderful people, many of which who I had never met before. It’s quite fantastic and there are a lot of questions coming up.
But I realized, on my way home – the art and act of questioning saved my life.
I know, I know, it’s that time of year when Marti actually tries to bring back the blog. It’s not surprising is it? Haha. Anyway, I know, I promised a new series and then disappeared off of the face of the earth – because that’s just kind of how I roll most of the time. That being said, I want to try and actually get through a whole year of blogging this year. Life is crazy all of the time, but it’s good to try and be back.
So, yeah, I said I had another series in the wings and then I farted with time because I was too busy applying for a job and trying to get things sorted out with Court coming back to move in. That being said, I do plan on starting the Maslow series on Thursday. 🙂
