I’ve often heard the analogy that healing is “like peeling away layers of an onion”.
If only … I have a lot of ‘if only’ running through my mind at the moment and there’s one thing I know for sure – I can’t go back and change them … so how do I accept the not-so-loving choices I’ve made in my life?
The unfoldment of the amazing work-in-progress that I am is allowing me the opportunity to choose another way of treating myself – I have been and can be very hard on myself for choices that have not been true for me. And the hardness stems from the fact that I knew it was ‘right/wrong’ and overrode that – I didn’t honour the first feeling. This applies to all areas of my life – men, food, money, work.
I haven’t trusted myself.
And here we are – another day, same day revolving around the sun, again – and another opportunity to have a deeper connection with myself and GIVING MYSELF PERMISSION to build trust and love with myself. That onion has been peeled away and I do need to honour how far I’ve come from and trust that I can build trust by simply starting to see myself as worthy of the love that is all around us, just waiting with open arms.
C’mon onion – let’s reveal the next layer – and if there are tears, so be it 😉
