TRUE LOVE TUESDAY: I LOVE MYSELF BEST

It is easy to let someone else be responsible for your happiness. It is easy to swallow your longings for the prevailing wishes of another. It is easy to turn down our own intuitive selves to stay rooted in loud mess. When we don't give voice to our longings and heart's desires, we are saying we don't love our selves best. To go along and never give voice to your deepest desires keeps you rooted in fear.

So many folks believe that in order for success in anything that there must be some sort of struggle. Some sort of over arching challenge to conquer. My life has taught me that anything I have to struggle with or wrestle for is not in my best interest. It's like trying to fit a square into a circle. When you are in tuned to who you are and willing to accept nothing less than the absolute best then struggle becomes obscene and a real waste of time. Let it go. Let go.

I am done trying to figure out people. I am done trying to sort through other's mental mess and past traumas and heartbreaks and missteps and mishaps. I am no saviour and I am not understanding. I love myself best. I love myself true.

Perhaps this declaration will leave me alone for the rest of my life...I doubt it. And I am not saying that love is solely on my own terms. I am saying that when you put so much into anything and the rewards are not grand or your needs are not being met fully...in way that say this is worth it. Then keep it. I am moving on. Life is too short to try to make something out of nothing. There is no convincing in love.

I love myself best.

Well said indeed. The more I try to figure out other peoples mess, the more I realize I don't understand. It just isn't worth the effort anymore.

Love yourself best, very well put indeed!
