The Way We're Measured

My worry is that what you measure yourself with ends up defining you. You pour yourself into the thing that measures you and it defines you. And I just hope that one day you find out that you're fuller when you measure yourself in love and people and moments, instead of things, adoration and money.

Love, people and moments can be created in the mind though. Feeling above reality?

we don't measure ourselves but we put ourselves into a mould which is really useless.

What happens when we measure ourselves by another person? Someone who has standards that, no matter how hard you try, you'll never reach because, to them, you will never be good enough.

Love doesn't measure. Love is unconditional, unlimited

Your best entry told me not to get caught up in all the restrictions and names you can gain with amounts of effort.

The rest is poetry to my ears.
That entry hit me in the heart.

I hope you know your own truth.
