Someone you may forget to love this Valentine’s Day

  1. Yes! I could not have expressed this better myself. We are not our jobs, our looks, our achievements, names, or failures. Who we are is much more complex and this is a relieving complexity. šŸ™‚

  2. Wow, Andie… that’s a very clever reflection. I didn’t think about Valentine’s as a day to think of ourselves, and love ourselves for what we are. This is such a neat post!

    Also, thanks for stopping by my blog and for your kind comment.

    Happy and blessed Valentine’s Day!

  3. That is a lovely post about your friend. Sometimes we get ‘locked in’ to certain kinds of behaviour as well. And we begin to live down to the expectations of others.

    Unfortunately, Andie, every group usually has a scapegoat of some kind. Could that have happened in your group?

    But what you say about belief in self is really important. It is important to know yor own boundaries as well. It took me quite a few years to understand that whilst I worked with people, I did not need to feel part of the group on any terms but my own.

    All the best šŸ™‚

  4. It’s so much easier to love others when we can believe that we ourselves are valued and cherished by God. I think we often forget just how much He loves us. Great thoughts!

  5. I have spent my entire life not loving myself; loving everyone around me yet never seeing how special I am and how much God loves me – for me.

    This past 2 years has been the most painful of my life – and the most liberating. I finally respect myself enough to actually like myself.

    Love is around the corner I’m sure. šŸ™‚

    1. You are certainly on a good path, Kris. Discovering and celebrating your self-worth is freeing and I believe that the entire world rejoices with this kind of self-knowledge, liking and then loving. Your honesty is inspiring.
