Meek


Of late I have been thinking of qualities that I find admirable in women. Reading blogs, I end up saying "Thank you for the post, I admire x, y, and z, about it and you." And usually x, y, and z, are sex appeal, descriptiveness, warmth, laughter and honesty. I find these qualities very beautiful.

Growing up in the house I did, I was told to work on a different quality. Yup, to try to be meek. For this post I opened up a webster's dictionary and came to read these definitions.

1.Gentle
2.enduring injury with patience and without resentment: mild
3.deficient in spirit and courage : submissive
4.not violent or strong : moderate

Not very wonderful qualities if I do say myself, aside from that Gentle one in a mate. But, I was in my teens when someone put this spin on the "Meek" trait. They said 'Meekness is controlled power. You have the ability to do so much, but you choose to be gentle.' In many ways it fulfills the second definition above. You have the ability to smite someone who does you wrong but you are gentle and soft with them.

But being on this site, I must bring this to a relationship. How nice would it be to be joined to someone who can make your life miserable when you do something wrong, but instead they are gentle with you, and caring, encouraging and uplifting. When I think of that I am in a bliss dream, and wow what a dream! And I recognize that if I want to be a good man I must develope this trait wholeheartedly.

Maybe if I do develope this trait I will avoid the dreaded gene known as knuckledragging. If you are unsure what this knuckledragging gene I speak of you may want to try to wander to Bella's post of Sept 19, 2005, or Travelingintexas' post dated on Aug 25, 2005.

I wish you well.

I think we all have a bit of knuckledragger in us sometimes but for the most part they are phases that passes. Just the fact that you understand that gentleness and meekness is controlled power shows that you have found the secret to what women want and need. More power to you...I loved this post!

That truly reflects the persona I have of you Trav.

You have great power, and passion but it is focused and controlled by your heart, mind and spirit. I wish you all the best.
