Tony Robbins said this about his mother:
“IF SHE HAD BEEN the mother I WANTED her to be…I would NOT be the man I am….”
Although we all want a smooth life, drama-free relationships with family, partners & co-workers; none of us want painful toothaches or flat tires in the middle of nowhere.
It seems what we THINK we truly want – Isn’t what’s actually best for our growth…
Somehow those things are beneficial for our own “character building”. That’s an old-time cliche statement but what if it’s true?
What if it’s to help us be the best version of ourselves we can be? In order to help us see things we would NOT have seen if we were riding high on the hog the whole time.
My mama used to always say… “She must have had an easy life” when talking about someone who appeared problem free.
Key word APPEARED….
We just don’t know what battles someone has faced or is facing. And just because we happen to be the target of their anger at the moment, we can’t let it diminish our worth or stop our momentum.
We CAN’T kick ourselves over & over again for not living up to what everyone expects us to be TO THEM, just so they can feel better. Their perception of us is truly only reflective of the war inside them that they haven’t resolved.
This last few weeks the war inside me that I thought I had resolved, has exploded into a million pieces.
The struggle with wanting peace & acceptance & love from those who matter to me the most to me has been a bittersweet experience. It has forced me to find true unconditional love & acceptance within Myself.
All I feel is love toward them.
Because if I reject THEM because they are rejecting ME…then I am only rejecting ME ….. over & over…. & where does that get anyone?????
And if they don’t want to look at your face then oblige them and go away. Send them love from afar…….energetically.
Love really is the only answer……. Despite what you get back 🌼❤🌼
