I love me cuz I know me.

love me cuz I know me.

 

Emotional balls of fire we are. Amazing what a difference a day makes when someone is rude or kind to you.

“Bad and good news is: You cannot make people like, love, understand, validate, accept or be nice to you. You can’t control them either. Good news is: it doesn’t matter.”

It’s all about your sense of self-worth, self-love, self-acceptance and realizing you do not need the validation or indeed the stamp of approval from other people to tell you how special and unique you are;
You already know it, you just have to own it and believe in yourself.
The self-love practice is daily, the great news we can always begin again and again; we all know we fall back into negative thinking from time to time, and that is ok. We need the contrast to stay on task and to understand how worthy you are of this life. ॐॐॐॐॐॐॐ

I welcome the re-alignment in my reality as I open my heart/mind to the people that love me. The mirror is always up and provides excellent confirmation of the law of attraction.

“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”
― E.E. Cummings

I am poetically clear about my beliefs which are subject to change as I change and gain more insight. Simply put; I AM and with that I have FAITH in; Myself.

  1. That final quote is so true. Believing in myself definitely makes me willing to take the risks I have other the years.

    It also helps me compartmentalise pretty well. For instance, someone may say or do (or neglect to say or do) something that momentarily makes me feel as if I’m being taken for granted or I question my worth to them. But I don’t question my SELF worth. That remains untouched.

    1. We definitely have to pay attention to what we are feeling when someone does, or says something that might go against our innate grain. We have to be careful not to make anything about us, sometimes those uncomfortable feelings are more about the other person. Remember, no body can MAKE us anything, we choose to accept it because it triggered something in us, otherwise, they could and can say just about anything and we would not feel responsive. JMO

      1. I have a pretty tough skin, and my man has a pretty loose mouth. As do I lol. So we’ve both learned to shake off the remarks that come out the wrong way when we’re not thinking. The last time he let a bomb slip was just a few days ago. It was so terrible we both started laughing hysterically.

        That said, there are times when you give and don’t get the reaction you hoped for, or had an expectation left fulfilled, or had plans brushed aside for other obligations etc and the doubts set it. Like I said, I don’t make that about me. I make that about one person’s estimation of me, which may not even be true. What we suspect isn’t always what’s happening. I like to leave plenty of room to be proven wrong.

      2. Thanks for sharing. First, we are so accustomed to labeling things ‘right’ and ‘wrong,’ true when things go our way it is celebrated as ‘right’ and certainly when they are not, we are the first to say, “that was wrong.”
        I look at life as a practice, as my yoga practice.
        I show up on my matt and let my body, heart-mind, and spirit take me when it needs to go. That being said, that is a relationship I have with myself, and if I want to create conflict by judging my practice I can put a label on it; instead, I practice patience, kindness, and gratitude for the opportunity to go deeper into knowing myself more. When others enter into our lives and push our buttons, bait us, etc.; that is another situation altogether. I believe everyone is there to show us who we are at that moment; then it is up to us to respond or not. We most likely react from some unfinished business within that we are not aware of until the person points it out or says or does something to trigger us.
        Situation, place, and people who we let define us, so we have to engage to show the position, person or place that is not who you are, but in truth, it is at that moment.
        It is never a good practice to say shit to get a rise even if we are or label it “joking.” Everything is energy and energy cannot be banished only transformed, and when we engage in negative energy, it converts more of it.
        Unfortunately, when we are in close relationships we have these crazy expectations, and they certainly are not always met, I will venture a higher vibrational guess with good reason; for us to be independent of another’s grind. The beauty of a conflict is that it gives us pause to look more deeply into our actions and intentions. We want to resolve a conflict (a wholesome intention), but we also want to see that (they) are wrong (an unwholesome intention). That is usally why we argue our points. Practice grounding yourself within. When something rises…Pause…And see what happens. Pausing affords us some time to know this can go in our favor or not.

        Thanks for reading my blog, I appreciate you!

      3. That’s a good mindset to have. While it’s perfectly possible to grow with someone, it’s better to get yourself situated before you start looking to pair up.

        I tried explaining this to a friend who was depressed and jumping from casual fling to casual fling, waiting for someone to be “okay” with his depression. He couldn’t understand why it might be better to get help first. What he was okay with was burdening someone with the responsibility of pushing him to get help, as his better half. We could never see eye to eye on that.

        Thankfully, I don’t have anyone in my life who says or does things to get a rise out of me. I believe my partner and I want the best for each other, and certainly want to be the best versions of ourselves for each other. Not for show, but genuinely. But… we also both value directness and honesty.

        Back in 2016, I had a friend who liked to push buttons, like you mentioned. It did not end well. Sometimes we choose not to respond, but another option available to all of us is to sever ties with people who do nothing but create negative energy. Like you said, it can’t be destroyed or taken back when that happens. It festers.

        Thanks for chatting!
