By loving yourself and accepting yourself fully, you are letting go of whatever "mistakes" you might have made in the past. There is no more shame, no self-blame; there is only love. And as uncomfortable as the process that lead me here might be, meditating can help.

There Is No Greater Truth Than Love

Love is not a choice. It exists, everywhere and in each of us. We all know it well. To act from love, however, is a choice. To make love a priority, no matter what, is a choice. To commit oneself to being a messenger of love is a choice. The single best choice anyone of us can make.

Rev. Jeff Hood

The false promise that "peace will get what you want" is absurd. Sometimes you have to shut things down in order to bring about justice. The work that I do is to ensure that acts of civil disobedience remain nonviolent, not that they remain nonexistent.

Margaret Paul, Ph.D. | Posted 07.28.2014 | Healthy Living
Margaret Paul, Ph.D.

While you might not be aware of it, we all have at least a second to choose how we want to respond to a trigger -- and most times more than a second. If you choose to take the breath and tune in, you have a chance of responding from your loving adult self rather reacting from your ego wounded self.

Your goal isn't to prevent any and all negative emotions (or repress them, which is worse), but to metabolize them the way you would food: Get what you need from it and let the rest go.

We control to get love and avoid pain, yet by controlling rather than loving ourselves and others, we create the very pain we are trying to avoid. The negative aspects of your relationship and your expectations are fertile areas for exploration within yourself and with your partner.
