We all have the need for love and connection. As babies it is only natural that this need is met externally, as we are helpless and rely on our caregivers to meet our needs. And as we get older, we continue to rely on external forces, primarily through our relationships to meet those needs. As a result, we become dependent on others and we are often feeling unfulfilled. ❤️
I don’t know about you, but I was never taught to love myself or for that matter even really ask myself what I want. Now as an adult, I’ve finally learned that I get to meet these needs for myself and I get to love myself and learn to connect with myself. I get to explore the things that I want, the feelings that I want, the experiences that I want to have, the activities that I want to try and incorporate into my life. I get to create the vision of what I want my life to look like. It is beautiful and fulfilling when we realize that these are needs that we get to meet on our own. We are so lucky to have the opportunity to take care of ourselves the way that we need to be taken care of. Perhaps even in a way that our parents did not or were not able to. ❤️
Often times, I think of myself as that special infant who was dependent on my parents. You were that person too. And that part of you is still alive, it is still a part of you. The person who deserves love just because you exist, just because you were born and just because you are you. No matter what you may have done in the past, no matter how your body looks and no matter how many times you may have let yourself down in the past, it is never too late to love yourself and to create a connection with yourself. ❤️
