note to self: i’ll be there for you, always

written june 6, 2021. Photo by Kristine Cinate on Unsplash I have always looked for myself in other people. I think the idea was that they would somehow hold the pieces of me that I felt were missing. That maybe, if I wrapped my identity up in theirs enough, we would somehow make a whole person. It's not healthy to live like this, but I did it anyway — burning through relationships and searching for something I couldn't quite name. It was never enough, not to be myself, but it was never enough to latch my identity to other people, either. I got close, several times — I thought I had reached the pinnacle of self discovery. I thought I had completed myself. But in the end, relying on other people to help build yourself is never a viable way to do things. It's only recently that I've started to become comfortable with the idea of being enough, as I am, on my own. Several years ago, in this same position, I would have searched for another person to attach my identity onto,

the king of glory

What a fallen world
Who is this king of glory?
I'm not ashamed
Who is this king of glory?
How can this love be understood?
Oh, this king of glory.

Who can save this world?
The Lord Almighty
Who gives us this message to be spread?
The Lord Almighty
Who can heal these broken shards?
Oh, the king of glory.

Praise Him forever and ever
He is the king of glory
Let Him whisper to your heart
Oh, the king of glory

Who is he, this king of glory?
The Lord Almighty--
He is this king of glory

Praise Him forever and ever
Oh, this king of glory
He is the king of glory.

My only rule is basic respect and honor. Disagreement is accepted, but hate and trolling is not. Otherwise, say what you need to say, and have fun. And don't forget to grab a free complimentary mint on your way out.
