I need people.

And that annoys me.

Told you I would be honest.

Not annoying like people bother me; they don’t. I love people! I love you…probably. The fact that I need you though, makes life more difficult for me to be perfect. Oh, yeah, and the best. I want to be the best. In everything. So when I enter into a situation where someone else adds to my life, I get…

Annoyed.

Annoyed that I wasn’t complete before I met that person. Annoyed that he knew something I didn’t. Annoyed because now I feel as if I have to somehow add back to her life, too. Annoyed that I am not an island.

Annoyed and Grateful.

Grateful for the reminder that I am not perfect…so I can RELAX!

Grateful that I am still learning, still growing, and I’m not done yet.

Grateful because if I need someone, then someone else needs me, too.

Grateful because I am not alone.

We were never meant to go through this life by ourselves. And no I don’t mean married, either. We need to foster relationships on every level because those relationships add to, pull out of, and yes at times chisel away at us thereby shaping the very person we are becoming. And to stay ‘in shape’ I need you to help work me out.

And you need me, too.

Isn’t that annoying?

It’s a 2 for 1 deal. We are all created to thrive–you for me and me for you. All relationships, even the bad ones, can be used to strengthen and shape our lives. This week. let’s embrace this truth, connect with somebody, and let them connect with you. Help shape someone, and let the shaping happen in you as well. 2 lives changed for the price of 1.

No annoyance required.

You keep connecting and I’ll stay,
