Cutting Slack

Loving people warts and all means overlooking some of the characteristics which we find challenging. We cannot control or change other people’s behaviour and so acceptance really is the key. We are all perfectly imperfect human beings just doing our best after all.

Allowing

Love them just the way there are

Don’t try to fix or cure them

Accept their foibles and their scars

Hold close the raw and pure them

Love them without any strings

Whilst honouring your borders

No need to buy their love with things

It’s trust that reassures us

Love love love the innocence

Love their defence, see through it

And when there actions make no sense

With open heart, speak to it

Love the parts which sometimes jar

Be faithful and there for them

Love them just the way there are

Don’t try to fix or cure them
