Seeing yourself through someone else's eyes can be tricky. It requires trust and high self esteem. You gotta know who you are and be willing to hear the analysis without feeling like you are being attacked or criticized unfairly. This is where it becomes hard for me. I am still carrying some baggage...albeit small carry-ons of my former marriage. In that marriage criticism was often brutal and mean spirited. So if I think you are attacking me then I retreat.
What I am learning (thanks to my blood sister Lo & Sister-friend JB) is that I have to stand in the space of fear and stare it down in this new found loveship. This MAN is not THAT man. The woman I am today is the not the same woman yesterday. There has been growth and meaningful self analysis. I am loving the way that I am coming to love right now.
Love stretches us to truth, to clarity to love deeper. I want to love deeper. In order to love deeper I have to be open and living with a full heart.
The Love Story continues....
