I look into your eyes and all I see is beauty yet your world is ruled by fear. How can a person so beautiful be so fearful? I know you’ve been through some tough stuff in your life, I know you’ve felt unimaginable pain. I know you’ve wept at night and I know you worry yourself silly about things happening or things re-happening.
But you know what? Fear is weak and you can overcome it. Fear is a signpost to something deeper. If you looked inside of yourself deeply enough you would find unimaginable strength and power. You can use fear and pain to move you to a place you never dreamt possible. A place full of possibilities, a place where fear is your ally which can be flipped into excitement. In this place, we see our worries for what they are, not real and not worth the attention. You can deal with bad things that happen when they happen. Don’t live your life just to worry. Stop looking for people to judge and blame and release your fears onto. You project your fears into huge overwhelming monsters. You can stop your reactions from making huge negative ripples in the world. Stop giving yourself things to regret.
Love is all it takes. A powerful tool that we all have at our instant disposal should we choose to utilise it. Self-love first and foremost leads to us being more able to love others fully and wholeheartedly. Love is the universal lubricant. Love makes us whole.
Introspection is a hugely underutilized resource. Use it!! In the end, all we want is to be loved, appreciated and accepted. Why don’t you start by giving these things to yourself, fully and unapologetically love yourself? How about you commit now to that? Love yourself, honour, cherish yourself. Grow in that space and I promise you, you will never want for anything. You will be contented and you will be fulfilled and that is all there ever needs to be. I love myself and I love you all and I wish you all the same. Peace.
