Charles Schultz

Last night I watched a PBS program about Charles Schultz, the creator of the Peanuts cartoon strip. I was touched by the program. It told how Mr. Schultz often wondered if people loved him for who he was, not just for being rich and famous as a cartoonist. He seemed not to have gotten words of affirmation when he was young and needed them from others. It reminded me of myself. I went to bed in a contemplative mood after having watched the program.

...... and when we don't hear those words when we are young... we end up questioning and second guessing them as we get older. trying to find the motive behind such nice words or actions... always thinking that if someone says those words, they can't possibly, truly love us for no reason other than loving us... it's sad what was never given takes away so much more... like a hole within a hole. doesn't seem right at all.
