Our fear & anger & frustrations can manifest in the way we treat others. Holding on to bitterness, speaking harshly & questioning everyone's motives.
More important than how we treat & speak to others though, is how we treat ourselves. When disapproval & criticism seem to be coming from all angles, what do you say & believe to & about yourself?
A friend of mine played me a song on Sunday & one of the lyrics caused me to burst into tears. The singer said 'I wrote this song to say I forgive me. I wrote it to say I love me'.
That night I wrote myself a love letter & just acknowledged all the beautiful things about me. The secret thoughts I have, the quiet things I do & the love that burns in me. It was weird at first but I realised that if I can write love letters to others (something I love to do), then I could most certainly do one for me.
Peace & love
