Unask

Mu. I feel like I'm asking all the wrong questions. Instead of asking "why are people so annoying" I should be asking "How can I learn to love people." But, even if I loved them, they would still be annoying. I don't care about them, but I should, if I'm going to call myself a Christian. I'm not above them, why do I keep thinking that my not caring about celebrity drama, new movie releases, and traditional romance will put me in a position where I can see reality more clearly? It won't. My reality is just as removed from the "real" as theirs is. While I disdain poshlust, I haven't escaped it - how could I? I live in it.

Now I just need to figure out what I'm going to do with all these potatoes.

The answer is always puppets.

I think it's one of those things where you act as if you love them, and then pretty soon you do. This is repellent in our "be true to yourself" society, but seems to work fairly well.

hmm... I think it's unreasonable to expect to love everyone. There are just some people who push all our buttons and people we dont' even know. Maybe it's not so much the feeling that's important but if we treat people with love? I saw a really good video on this. :)
