Self Love is a Journey, Not a Destination
When we don’t love ourselves, we live imprisoned by our own perfectionism and fear that we have to earn the love and approval of others by living up to their expectations of us.
We think that perfectionism can save us from being hurt or unloved but it actually inhibits us from receiving the true authentic intimacy that is our deepest desire.
We can not be truly loved for who we are, if we are not revealing our whole, true self.
By offering ourselves unconditional love and acceptance, we free ourselves to be ourselves.
When you love yourself, you know yourself to be of worth and you allow yourself to be seen for who you are.
You honor yourself with real and authentic relationships by cultivating the courage to be your authentic and vulnerable self.
You know everyone makes mistakes, so you don’t try to be perfect and you forgive yourself when you mess up.
You honor yourself by meeting your needs and taking the time to care for your body, mind, and spirit.
If we want to live and love our lives fully, we have to own every part of we we are and what we have come through,
we have to reintegrate all parts of ourselves into who we are,
and we have to learn to love every step of our journey, embracing it all as the perfect path that has gotten us where we stand today.
The exercises that you will receive over the next 21 days are designed to support you on this journey.
