When our hearts are revealed to the world it can be either exhilarating or terrifying. When we open up to someone for the first time it is a risk; either we will be accepted or rejected. When we find commonality, there is relief.
“Someone who will understand me.”
“Someone who gets me.”
Why do we find relief? Because we love ourselves and we love others who are like us. "Loving ourselves" was never the question for Jesus. The following article is a great “snapshot” of us.
I have been a fan of the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) for many years. I love the art of language and the skill it takes to document the ever changing and living tongue of the anglophonic people.
This week all nerdly eyes were on Oxford as they announced the word of the year. This is an annual event at which a new and influential word is chosen based on how it has come into the language. Sure, it’s not the Superbowl, but some of us get pretty excited about these things.
Did you hear what this year’s word is? Selfie.
