Because here’s the thing, if you’re a perfectionist, that day will never come!
I used to think I had to be perfect.
I had an imaginary point of perfection that when reached, then, and only then, could I love myself or feel worthy of love.
Sadly, I got it wrong!
Turns out, real love of self is loving who your are in spite of your imperfections.
And I’m not alone in this belief.
I wrote a post recently entitled love yourself and the rest will follow. It didn’t get the hits I thought it would and I wasn’t surprised.
So many of us are not our own best friend.
Unconsciously, we know that, and we feel the pain.
So we don’t go there.
The shadow and the light
Yet loving one’s self is all important. It’s the foundation, the basis of our inner growth and happiness.
Loving who you are, as you are, is vital.
Therefore, in order to love yourself wholly, you have to accept who you are. All that you are! The shadow and the light!
Nothing, NO-thing changes until you do.
Before you clean the house, you have to see the dirt
If real and lasting happiness is what you seek, don’t be afraid of looking for what needs changing.
We’re afraid of what we think we’ll find, but that’s just smoke and mirrors to distract us from what’s important, and that is, deep inner change.
You have nothing to lose and so much to gain.
In a world that demands perfection, that judges what isn’t perfect, does it make us happy? I think not!
You’re perfect as you are in this moment and this moment is all there is.
We are created with great and infinite love.
Look at the flowers, the colours, shapes, textures and smells. The insects, similarly.
So much beauty and love around us, are we not the epitome of this?
Seen from this perspective you might ask, who are we to NOT love ourselves?
We’re in a new time, this is an old program, and it’s not working for us anymore.
It’s time to press the delete key.
