“Forget safety.
Live where you fear to live.
Destroy your reputation.
Be notorious.”
― Rumi

We’re all seeking that special person who is right for us. But if you’ve been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there’s no right person, just different flavors of wrong. Why is this? Because you yourself are wrong in some way, and you seek out partners who are wrong in some complementary way. But it takes a lot of living to grow fully into your own wrongness. And it isn’t until you finally run up against your deepest demons, your unsolvable problems—the ones that make you truly who you are—that we’re ready to find a lifelong mate. Only then do you finally know what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: the right wrong person—someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, “This is the problem I want to have.”

I will find that special person who is wrong for me in just the right way.

Let our scars fall in love.

CultureSOUL *50s* - Billie Holiday - Lady Sings The Blues (book) - 1956
Billie reading the manuscript for her famous autobiography which was originally published in 1956. This book was also the loose basis for the popular 1972 film starring Diana Ross.
 *Note - Too much to share in one month (and I got backed up) so I’m extended the 1950s retrospective through October.
