How do you protect and soothe those you love when you yourself need love and soothing?
And because you are yet to master this skill, to honour your own Self Development and to navigate through your own pain, holding space for those you love is often a great challenge.
And yet expectation is high, from Self or the projection of what is required or demanded…
I am always searching for something but what I am pleasantly getting used to is an inner peace that I do not need to search for anything, I just need to heed the call of life and allow myself to flow.
There’s great beauty in surrendering to the unknown.
There’s great power in allowing yourself to learn yourself before you give yourself away to others, no matter who feels they are entitled to you, no matter who you have previously given too much of yourself to.
It all boils down to you.
Self Work takes time and effort and lots of Self Kindness.
Unlearning yourself and relearning yourself comes with many polarities joy and shame, sadness and happiness, to name a few, and yet the intention, which truly is the gift, is that you are growing yourself and loving yourself, soothing yourself and protecting yourself first which then allows you the capacity to give to others when you have nurtured you, properly.
We have lots of time in this life, although we’re programmed to believe otherwise, it really is about how you utilise your time, what you put your efforts into and how you work with life creating balance.
Forgive yourself for not having whatever you presume you should have to give to others and give love to yourself.
Focus on growing yourself.
Your lessons will always come regardless. In any moment you are exactly where you need to be to learn your lesson so pay attention and always ask:
What am I being asked to learn?
Have a break from giving and take sometime to give to yourself however that may be but really commit – even if it’s just for a day.
Practice makes progress. (Les Brown)
Self Love is having an awareness of your surroundings and yourself and knowing what to nurture first, giving yourself permission to do so.
Happy Self Loving!
You Are Mighty!
You Are Powerful!
You Are Loved!
