take me for who i am; love me as who i am..

As we seek for a partner in life up and down, east and west, north and south, we look for the good qualities in him or her. If someone is beautiful, kind, lovely, patient, gentle, caring, sexy, etc etc.. that certainly makes her a likeable person, likewise if a 'he' is smart, caring, stable, wise, romantic, etc etc.. it is then also a norm to like that person. Of course, we still have to take into consideration that love is not merely of a mathematical logic. There is still the "feel" in us. Anyway,putting that aside, do we love someone simply just because they are good enough?

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

~ 1 Cor 13: 6-7 ~

Loving someone for the good, positive qualities is acceptable. But loving someone despite the things that he or she lacks; loving someone also for the negative qualities embedded in him or her; loving a person despite all the reasons that makes him or her imperfect... away from own personal ideal picture of 'him' or 'her' ; that is the magnificient of love, that is how sweet love can be.

... take me for who I am; love me as who I am.

I know of one who love me as whole despite how and who I am; and He is God, He is Christ.

And, I still ask, "please... take me for who I am, love me as who I am.." and perhaps thats my dream.
