These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep, loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."
"Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it’s cracked up to be. That’s why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more."
I’ve been feeling so fucking shaky and just generally anxious during these last few weeks and these are things I’ve not felt for some time now. “But you’ve made so much progress” those I’ve told say. But you see, I’m not digressing! The path is not a straight line, it’s a spiral. I revisit previous places and encounter deeper truths the more I experience them.
I could choose to cast aside this anxiety as an unwelcome guest, chastising it for coming back; or I could choose to hold it in a loving embrace, allowing it to know that it is welcome despite the discomfort it carries with it. Nothing with negative energy can persist in the presence of Love. Love absolves.
I love this fear, for it brings a wonderful opportunity. An opportunity to cultivate self-compassion and strengthen the connection to myself, because of this pervading uncertainty. I choose not to beat myself up, and instead be there for myself through this time.
This is the deeper truth I’ve learned while spinning on this hamster wheel. Uncertainty is not something to resist in life; it is an opportunity to repair or enhance the connection to yourself, rather than lead you further away.
