Today I had this realization. (I have these more and more frequently) I have this loving thing all wrong. I know that I am a broken person, but I neglect to realize that other people are, too. So it's kind of ridiculous to wait for people to "fix all their problems" before you delve into the friendship--because they can't and won't.
I think I knew that without putting words on it, but I was far more eager to engage in life with people whose flaws I didn't know very well. Ahhhhh it makes so much sense now! :)
