Day 41

10 Feb

Dad,

I don’t think you stand much of a chance. I have unrealistic standards for others and want to be loved in a perfect way that only Jesus can do, but I still want other people to love me that way.

Can you love me sacrificially? Love me when it hurts you to do so? Love me when I am unlovable? Love me when I am unbelievably smug and arrogant? Love me just because I am me and that is important? Love me because it’s the only thing you can do?

And do all of it perfectly and in a way that communicates love to me?

I should probably just settle for you acknowledging me when I contact you. Probably.

Bye,
AM
