We can change. I saw it first-hand! But we need to keep choosing into the freedom that lowers our prison walls. Regardless of how constricting our environment is, as we choose our response, over and over, the shackles of our lower natures drop away and we are liberated.

Linda Bloom LCSW and Charlie Bloom MSW

As the capacity to love one another grows, we become increasingly able to rest comfortably in the knowledge that we are loved for who we are, not what we do. Over time, we may come to experience a previously unknown well of self-love. Feeling loved and really letting that in provides a fantastic sense of freedom -- freedom from fear of loss and freedom to be ourselves fully.
