About Me

  • I'm a semi-retired professional man, living in the Midwestern United States. This blog is a personal blog and is not directly connected with my professional practice (although I may draw upon my professional experiences, as well as my personal experiences, in writing my blog posts). This is a place for personal, not professional, opinions.

"There is a God-shaped vacuum in heart of everyman, which only God can fill."

--St. Augustine

"It is rewarding to find someone whom you like, but it is essential to like yourself. It is quickening to recognize someone as a good and decent human being, but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable. It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect, admiration, and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of these things. For you cannot live in someone else. You cannot be given a life by someone else. Of all the people you will know in a lifetime, you are the only one you will never leave nor lose. To the question of your life, you are the only answer. To the problems of your life, you are the only solution." (Advice From A Failure, Jo Coudert)

As to your first point I am reminded of Jonny Lee's song "Lookin' For Love" (in all the wrong places). As to the second, much pain would be avoided if each of us stopped trying to "live in someone else." Another person is never the cure for what ails you.
