Falling in love

We can only truly love another to the extent that we can love our self and every day is an opportunity to fall in love with your self.

But what does that mean?

The act of loving is not pandering, indulging, excusing, controlling or fawning.

Self love is not a destination, it is a practice where I learn who I am, what I like and dislike so I can operate within the limits of my tolerances while gradually broadening my capacity. Self love recognises that I don’t have to love my circumstances or my history to love myself. And, self love knows that putting time and effort into self worth, self respect and self acceptance is a worthwhile pursuit that I invest in every day. Self love does not seek to dominate or control others in order to become powerful because I understand that everyone else has the right to self love, too.

Therefore the extent to which I can truly love myself is the extent to which I can love another. How you treat yourself is how you will treat others.

 

Maria’s Mindfulness Moment

My journey to self love has been about letting go enough to love myself exactly as I am. The acceptance has not stagnated me. It has inspired me.

 

The Wednesday Whisper
