If I am to be anything to anyone else the best thing I can do is build within myself first.
I have found that when I know who I am, when I am spiritually connected, when I focus on the things I need to change in me, when I believe in not just who I am today but who I am becoming, I can then come into relationships with others and bring goodness.
If I don’t have love in me to give then my relationships don’t work. If I’m filled with anger, resentment and fear, that is what I give to others. If I’m filled with judgement of myself then all I do is judge others.
When I love myself I can focus on what I can bring to others, to help lighten their lives and how I can love them better. I can find more peace in these relationships.
It’s in the turning away from what I think I need to get from people and turning to what I can give to them that I find everything I’ve been looking for.
I put each relationship to the test.
What can I bring to my relationships today?
Have I done the work within myself to create loving relationships?
