Reminder to self:
If you're still harboring an inkling of the notion that other people can fulfill your life or make you complete, give it up. You'll be disappointed. And you'll put others through a hell of unrealistic expectations. Your partner, your children, friends, associates and work are not about completing or fulfilling you.
God's grace does this. Grace is more than enough. Go there. Focus there.
Loved ones, family and friends--along with opportunities in work and service--are gifts. They are resources, not sources. They are instrumental, not ultimate.
