The role of a Jeweler is not to make a diamond but to bring forth its beauty so that everyone can see it as clearly as he did.
Something that Anita said to me early in our relationship was that she wanted to be beautiful. I immediately told her that she was beautiful.
But (being a woman) she had heard that all too often before from men trying poor lines to "pick up", so the words had no meaning when simply spoken. So it became my job to reveal to her the beauty she possessed.
I guess the first thing one needs to do is build upon self confidence, and that is something which is perhaps less well nurtured in women. For in the competitive world all that matters (to all and sundry) is success. Winning. Second is just part of the group of losers.
Through ups and downs I took every opportunity to remind her she was beautiful, to show her how I thought she was beautiful, not just in her appearance but in who she was. To encourage her to see, to know know this and be confident to express her beauty herself.
I know I was successful.
Its not just about vanity, its about caring attitudes, strong
and self respect. Building confidence and helping them to see their own
I think that the only thing you can take with you from this place to the next is your heart and soul. I'm glad that I got to help her see how beautiful hers was. She remains my Exquisite Jewel
Shouldn't we all be jewelers on the ones we love? I think we should.
