Love and Be Loved

Thoughts Inspired from reading Daring Greatly by Brene Brown.

You can only be loved so much as you love yourself. And you can only love yourself so much as you have explored the darkness and light that is within.

By allowing ourselves to be seen in our beautiful imperfections- the humanness of it all.

We allow others to do the same.

Realizing that we don’t need to be loved by everyone, nor do we need to love everyone.

Feeling the freedom to acknowledge you are proud of who you are, and want to be loved for this growing and evolving person — not for an imagine one portrays in order to gain the false acceptance and love of another which will inevitably leave us feeling empty and misunderstood.

Explore, accept, evolve, connect, laugh, find freedom. Find freedom. Shine bright.

Overflowing Love

I want everyone to feel so much genuine love for themselves that it spills out of them and onto the people around them.

Therefore when they receive love from others:
– they do not attach to it or try to control it
– they do not crave the acceptance of others
– they do not change their passions or aspirations in order to please
– they do not feel “less than” when they are not receiving love or fight with someone to receive more love
– they do not live in fear that they will not be loved

To this person, receiving love and appreciation is like a loaf of homemade bread being added to already overwhelming buffet, soon it will be shared with those around them, without asking for anything in return.
