TO LOVE A PERSON, by Fred Rogers

When we love a person, we accept him or her exactly as is: the lovely with the with the unlovely, the strong with the fearful, the true mixed in with the facade,and of course, the only way we can do it is by accepting ourselves that way.


We can always choose to perceive things differently. You can focus on what’s wrong in your life, or you can focus on what’s right. But whatever you focus on, you are going to get more of. Creation is an extension of thought. Think lack, and you get lack. Think abundance, and you get more. “A hidden belief that many of us hold is that there is something wrong with being too happy. We have been thought that it is arrogant to think we are deserving of total happiness. If anything comes into our lives – love, success, happiness – which seems like it would be suited to a “deserving” person, we conclude it can’t possible be for us. “We have been unable to accept joy because it does not match who we think we are, yet it is not only our right, but in a way, our responsibility to be happy”
