“It’s not in the way you love me. But in the way I love myself.” (And yes, this is a car selfie! 😂)
We teach others how to treat us. What’s ok, what’s not ok. What we like, what we don’t. And when we don’t speak up in the times we want to be treated differently, we are not only not showing ourselves self love, we are not loving the other person wholeheartedly, but rather reacting out of a fear we are clinging onto. We are also not allowing that person the opportunity to course correct, show up for us, or know what it is we need to feel love in return. (Platonic or romantic)
Many of our stresses come from pointing fingers at someone else (or some thing else) or assuming something about that person... one of the most empowering things we can do is take ownership for the part we play in the situation. Where are we not showing up fully for our self? We may not like the response we receive (if you ever receive one! 🤔 ) but at least we are BEING in alignment with our truth which gives us answers faster so we can manifest our hearts deepest desires.
We all want to feel connected.
We all want to feel wanted.
We all want to feel love.
And the way to all of it, is to have the courage to be vulnerable, own up to the part you play, and empower yourself to take action in expressing your needs and/or desires.
Have you been to a sound bath lately? It’s been a hard month for a lot of us. Link to the next Sound Bath is in the bio. Let’s hug it out.
