It Keeps No Records Of Wrongs

I found this over at a new site that asked to advertise on my blog through entrecard.

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."

I have been thinking on and off about a lot of wrong doings that I feel I experienced with that man from a few months ago, DTM. One of the things that came to mind was how I felt he kept a tally of wrongs and the immediate temper that went along with this attitude, not just for me, but to me about his past girlfriends.

In my search for the right man, I have had to allow myself to think about the things that are not acceptable to me, so that I don't repeat my mistakes. This issue was a big one for me. Ironically, today I found that wonderful quote on Heart Talk.

It's a great passage, but it's not just about love of others, it's also about self-love and a love of man/womankind.

Jun, Your site is lovely. I will keep visiting it. Looking forward to having you stop by here too.

Darrin, You, as always, make a very important and valid point. Something I wasn't thinking of when posting but realize I need to honor this in myself as well as expect this from my eventual mate.

Drowsey, I concur!
