hey remember how 13 started out her relationship with the fam by forcefully claiming they were NOT her troops, she was NOT leading them in to battle, they were FRIENDS, FAMILY even! she is NO LEADER! everyone is EQUAL here! we are FAMILY. i havent just lost my surrogate family, im not desperately alone, im NOT LEADING ANYONE INTO BATTLE. NOBODY IS DYING IN MY CARE HERE
[id: screenshot of 13 in 11x1 saying “no, not troops. team. gang.”]
and how RIGHT AFTER she disillusions them all (including, maybe mostly, herself) of this ‘we’re family, youre not my troops’ notion in villa diodati, she’s leading them into battle?

isnt that fun? isnt that great to think about?
This parting thought from my mediation the other night really stuck out to me because it fit in so well with what I’ve been thinking about lately. I am not letting LOVE be the foundation in my life, and that is the reason I am having such a hard time with people lately.
So much of my One Word 365 journey this year has been about how I don’t believe I deserve LOVE. That’s what I’m starting to see reflected in my attitude toward other people. It’s like an adult temper tantrum - if I don’t deserve LOVE, then no one does. And that’s the wrong way to go about it.
I wonder, though, if I start treating everyone else like they’re worthy of LOVE, then maybe I’ll start to believe it about myself too. But how can I do that? How can I put forth LOVE in my life when it’s something I don’t feel is meant for me?
This is actually something I’ve struggled with and written a lot about on this blog over the years. Not with LOVE specifically, but just with the idea that I believe other people deserve the good things that aren’t meant for me. I obviously haven’t learned all that much if I am still talking about it… I still don’t know how to actually put that into practice.
I talk a lot about how my understanding of the Bible and of Jesus Christ is that his message was LOVE. I talk about how I want to not beat people over the head with my faith but for them to see LOVE in my life and know what I stand for. But how can I be a reflection of who I believe Jesus to be if I am running around singing “I hate people, I hope they all die” all the time? And more, if I am really the Christian I claim to be, then how can my life be built on a foundation of anything other than LOVE?
Some food for my own thoughts…
