Self-Love 101 #5: Accepting My Hearts Desires

For a few minutes today I dedicate my attention to my desires, which I carry in the stillness of me, always present, always patiently waiting.

Today I fully accept them as my desires. Every single one is justified and allowed. I am not making one need or want wrong, or compare it to anyone else.

Self-Love 101 #4 – How I learned to be Selfish

Give, give, give. Raised a good, obedient girl and devoted Christian I learned from a very young age on to give, to give up on my needs to devote myself to others. It was rather extreme to the degree where I had completely lost myself, exhausted and confused. Even I saw that Continue reading “Self-Love 101 #4 – How I learned to be Selfish”

Poem: Face the Fire’s Truth

Here’s the end of the road, my friend. I’m glad you came.

How I love to grow beyond my trauma, and other legal drugs…

I like change, always have. I am weird that way, I guess, given that most people like things as they are, try to stay in their comfort zone hating change. Well, I am different. If my life doesn’t change every 1-2 years I am getting bored. And with bored I mean depressed.

Having Trouble with Family? 3 Family Myths Busted!

 

Myth #1: Family comes first. Family is Everything.

Have you heard of the term Blood runs thicker than water? It means that, in general, family counts more than friends. It’s more important than anyone else. Which I find is an odd way to define affection, affinity and love. Who made that rule?
