I liked John’s April 17th entry a lot. Anyway, regarding having someone who knows about every aspect of your life. Brennan Manning wrote something interesting about this in The Ragamuffin Gospel. He was just saying how one of the reasons for a midlife crisis is that you realize that no one fully understands you, and no one ever will. Not sure if that’s what John is talking about, but I think it’s similar. At any rate, I thought there was wisdom in that. It would be nice if there was someone who understood every part of you, but in the end, no one will fully understand you, and to realize that and accept it I think brings some measure of peace.
