There is this notion that we feel we have to prove our love to other people.
One of the themes of my life right now is, “Love is not asking us to prove our worth, but to accept it.”
Many have written in who have said they had chosen to be in a relationship with someone who THEY KNEW from the beginning wasn’t the right person for them. Yet, they proceeded anyway, many times, to try to change the other person. I’ve been there. It’s a part of the journey we all must go through to be able to pick people, over and over again, wounding ourselves because we are trying to prove our love.
The bottom line is this: when we know and see our own value, we will attract people who do, too.
Where does this start? Outside of us? NO – within. We must claim it. And we learn how to do this by not getting our needs met and learning through pain. That is how we learn. And life is the opposite of school. In school we study and THEN get the test. In life, we get the test and then we learn.
So, let us set a new intention for our relationships: to honor and cherish ourselves and to no longer prove our worth, but accept it. Let’s step into letting go of people who do not see our worth, not because we are selfish, but because we now love ourselves enough to let go.
Do you have the courage to truly accept your worth today? In doing so, whom would you let go of? And whom would you welcome in?
