Love and respect…

 I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it's not the answer.  ~Jim Carrey

   A very deep and interesting statement from Mr. Carrey, what then is the answer? 
For some strange reason most of us dream of being rich and famous, why then isn't that dream worth making come true?
How about  simply that dream lacks one major thing humanity needs to make us all happy.
That's right,  just one thing..LOVE. Without Love we can't really be happy, no amount of false Fan adoration or excess funds makes happiness. 
   Granted we can justify the use of funds, and adoration to imitate love but deep down, at the end of the day, the fans, and cash flow go away. (And no you really can't buy love, not real love anyway). We as  human beings need a measure of comfort that  some one loving us affords, the deep innate need to be cared about by another life force. ( And yes, cats and dogs count),  Man or Woman, or Child.
I for one need to know that some one, out there some where loves me. No matter what, I am loved. And for me that makes it OK.  I am not sure that  having a body in a bed is all that necessary, but I do need to know that you love me. It give me a sense of security , and that no matter what, I can make it through any hardship, hateful situation, bullying, or nastiness that creep out of the dregs of life. 
I intern feel also that everyone is deserving of my love and affection, no matter who they are, or what they believe, or how they choose to live their lives, they DESERVE my love and respect. Period. No exceptions.
We see so much in the media, about marriage equality,  and the world striving for equality in all things, My personal belief is of course everyone deserves those things, and who am I to deny anyone the right to love, and family, and all the other rights afforded to any one else on the Earth.
I know so many people believe that we should pick and choose who gets those rights based on sex, color, age, or race, but truthfully no one should have the right to disallow any other human being the rights to happiness and love. Stop using the Lord as a reason NOT to allow people to love each other, Hes not the one using that voice. Dumb people are.
I love many men, and women, I have some very dear and loved friends, My love and respect for them does not depend on their sexual identity, place of residence, time, religion, or hair color.
All of you know who you are.. I love you deeply and dearly. forever.

My philosophy, if indeed I have one, is love one another, because we can, and respect each other because its right, all life is important and deserves a voice.
