2502. Whereby I Eat Humble Pie

Dear Ladies,

I thank all of you for the kind, delightful, and encouraging comments on post 2501. The superior gender rides again. It’s amazing how pretty women can so easily turn discouragement into aspiration.

The people with whom you all associate are blessed to have you nearby. May they learn to appreciate your importance even more than they do presently; your encouragement overflows with gratitude, which magnifies your importance, and feeds your own happiness.

I hope my professional gratefulness spreads easily and smoothly as a blanket over each and every one of you. (Pillow fight, anyone?)

I never thought of this before, but encouraging others is an offshoot of your primal need to have a brighter future. If you need it, others must also and so you’re easily motivated to help. And your influence enlarges with maturity, which enlarges with finding gratitude, which makes women more important, and which makes the world both peaceful and happier. Prettier too. God bless you all.

    Sir Guy, Your work has changed my life. I’ve recently gone through a horrible, heartbreaking divorce to a man that I loved deeply for 23 years. He’s a serial cheater – it’s his weakness- and I credit you and my faith in God for my healing and my ability to forgive him because regardless of his choices, you’ve helped me to see that my choices for myself ALWAYS matter. You’ve helped me see that my choices – every single day- are the most important thing in helping me find happiness and that my most critical choice fundamentally rests on my focus to chose gratitude for what it is that I have – and not to fixate on what I don’t.

    So much of what you have said again and again is TRUTH. And to speak the truth is powerful in a time when so many people speak lies, or try to convince us that our fantasies can be realities, or that just because we think things should be a certain way that we must insist and rail against nature (a losing battle); that we can control other people’s choices or hold to unrealistic idea about the nature of men and what it is that they are and value as God given creations that are perfect to HIM as they are – made in his image just as women are but differently as they should be. And to have insider information about creatures so fundamentally different to help us, to helps us have more gratitude about our lives, to help us become happier, to help us to raise happier children because knowledge and truth are powers that we can use to make the world a stronger better place… We are always better served to live in reality and to count our blessings. All of this, you teach it. I am so grateful that you have had the heart of a teacher whether you decide to hang up your hat or not.

    It’s so personal to me, your work. You helped me realize that I chose wrong a long time ago when everyone is trying to tell me today that “It’s completely not your fault.” But when I read that part about choosing wrong, I instantly knew in my gut that you were absolutely right and that the truth has nothing to do with blame and nothing to do with him – he is the man he has chosen to be- it has to do with me. My truth. I knew my ex husband was a cheater – he told me he had cheated when we were dating and I knew his father did too. I chose to ignore that. I chose to ignore a thousand clues, a million lies. I thought it would not happen to me. When it was happening I always chose to deny it was. But it did happen and finally the truth must out and the results have been tragic and a huge loss for both of us. No one wins when these things happen. But, in the grand scheme of things, I realize that had I not chosen him I would have missed out on some of the best things in my life; Foremost, my three sons who are lionhearted and hard working. And so much more that I can’t even begin to tell you because I have been blessed beyond belief- an embarrassment of riches.

    My life is full, even in the midst of all this failure. And I read what you write and I think about the husband I want someday when I am ready. You help me see him more clearly. He’s far from perfect – like me. He doesn’t “get” me because it is more interesting for him not to. I’ve measure his character over time and, most importantly, watched what he does to see who he is. And, most importantly in that regard, I’ve found me so that he can find me. The me that makes me feel beautiful. She cares about herself – inside, outside, spiritually, physically, femininely – and she doesn’t need to explain or justify or fill the world with woe or anger or bitterness. Because she’s happy. Mostly. (And scared. Sometimes.) But most of all, she’s grateful. And she counts you and your words of wisdom as one of her many blessings – regardless of whether she ever finds a man in her future to be Mr. Good Enough (and if I know her like I think I do- she probably won’t accept that she won’t find him. She’s hard headed in that regard, anyway.)

    Your Highness Cleopatra,

    Welcome aboard. It’s a great day when another pretty woman joins us on this cruise to WhatWomenNeverHear.

    Also, thank you for the encouragement. You show immense maturity and should do very well with the rest of your life.
