A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.
This quote has so much meaning to me that words are just not enough. I am generally not a fan of quotes but this one serves a purpose. Being a Virgo, everything has to have some sort of meaning to me.
Almost a year ago, I started dating outside of my race. I never gave it a second thought before, but when you meet someone who is really kind to you just because you are you, one can not pass up the opportunity on spending time to get to know that person. It was really a learned lesson.
I feel people should not block themselves off from finding happiness with just one race. Because that is what society thinks is best. I do not think it is best for me. I could careless of what someone else may think of MY decision. The best thing that I learned last year was meeting a guy who really changed my whole view on why to try to date someone different. He did not advocate one bit for his race. He just changed my way of thinking and I will always be appreciative. You can learn from each other and learning produces growth. If I cannot learn anything from someone I would date, I do not see the purpose on being in the same room with that person.
I am stating all of this to say, that you can find happiness in all colors shapes and sizes. Do not grow up to be “Shallow Hal” you would be surprised who can actually place a smile on your face and have a place in your heart.
