Something I realized in the last month.....

The value in one's life is not in how much love and respect one receives.
It is in how much love and respect one gives.
Realizing this, I no longer feel so strange for still feeling some love for some of the people who have hurt me very much in the past. Note that I used the word "love" - not "like" or "trust".
I think I am finally starting to find my place in the world - and that place is to be of service to others who need it, instead of living my life just selfishly seeking to be served.
I am not reaching for sainthood - what I am reaching for is serenity, and once I have it, it will be my pleasure to help others reach the same goal.
Many thanks to everybody here (and I do mean EVERYBODY) for your part in helping me to realize what path I should follow.
