I know that I will never find the community of men that I need who will come along side me toward doing meaningful and purposeful things -- men whose presence will not make me feel inferior.
But I must keep looking for such men. I will not allow God or anyone to deter me---as impossible as they are to find. Men will not belittle me. Men who will not make fun of me. Men who won't spit on me for being less skilled, less disciplined, less motivated.
"And that is fine." Perhaps that's what God's been saying to me. "I'll just provoke your body and emotions into action. I'll turn up the fire, so that you're so angry, that you have to act and move toward your goals -- ALONE if necessary!"
