It is fascinating how over time, I have learned to have so much more compassion on others. I have been able to observe things that most people cringe at, with non judgement. What finally clicked for me was understanding that there is always more to the story than I may ever know. This has helped me hold compassion instances when most people would be ready for war.
What am aware of now, more than ever is, I am unable to do the very same for myself. This is critical. It will be the one thing that stands in the way of me making the transition that I want in life. Right now, I am in Resistance to this idea. Why? This didn’t happen over night. I have built the habit of needing others to justify my value. And just as strong as I want change, I am hold to my beliefs that I don’t deserve it. I will sit with this while I do my exercises, reminding myself that the love I seek is my own, it has always been and it will always be.
