Word of wisdom from been there, done that...

If you're not a peace with yourself, all your flaws, all your mistakes, all your ghosts, and all your memories (sweet and bitter), then you'll be at peace, period, and you'll never be able to just... let things flow, or go with the flow. And before you dare love someone else, learn to love yourself. No, this ain't religion or some new age inner hippy talking. It's just someone who's spent the better part of their lives at war with themselves trying to sand down their flaws to the point they're riddled with holes because they sanded to deep. Someone over 10 years back sent me Amy Macdonald's "This is what happiness means to me," told me it reminded her of me, then she up and hucked me like a used condom and never returned. I mustered up the guts to listen to it today, and tears trickled down my eyes like rain... I'm now over her, but I needed to return to the source of the pain before I could move on. And now the flow, flows...

People don't see their real selves or faults, and believe wholeheartedly the masks or deceptive show others put on. A recipe for relationship failure. Only time and action shows what's real.

Why?

Somehow my comment got posted before I finished writing it…what I was trying to say is that I don’t understand why there are so many downvotes for this post. The Op has obviously experienced a lot of life and I think what he’s saying (sorry but to me it seems like a guy wrote this) has merit. I agree, and maybe it’s just because I’m old and have lived a lot and loved a lot and have had my heart broken more than once. But realistically, if you want to be successful in love and life, until you make peace with yourself, nothing will work.

How do you be at peace…

When rockets are launched at you daily… then the throwers of rockets ridicule you for not being at peace?!?This can really fuck with your head.
