To See and Understand. To see differences, and accept. To see beneath the skin, beneath the facade, beneath the mask that most wear to protect themselves from prying eyes and judgement. I see, and understand. I see and accept. I am not justifying, or rationalizing, I am aware of the Why, the How, and the Cause. I see these things with clarity. Call it psychology, call it analysis. I call it Empathy. To truly see and understand the soul behind the words, deeds, actions and reactions. I chose to not judge, to not seek to make a change, but to accept. Yes, it may mean adjusting my own way of acting and reacting, but this does not change Me. It is part of who I am to be able to mold my friendship around the friend. So often I decry that I cannot be who I am, all of me, with anyone. But there are times when I realize that this is who I am, one who can adapt and alter to fit the scenario, the relationship. I still do not know if this is what I should do, what I should be, but it truly is who I am. I see. I understand. I accept. I know you, and know what you need. It is who I am.
