How To Find The Only Love That Satisfies

23 November 2016 Written by 

“It’s not other people’s job to love you; it’s yours.” This is a good one! If I am always waiting for approval from others, I will never be satisfied.

If my value is tied up in what I receive from others, I will never be satisfied. If I feel that I am incomplete without the love of another person, I will never be satisfied. It is not the love of my wonderful husband that satisfies me. That in itself was not enough. One day, I finally came to the understanding that I am enough. Just the way I am, I am enough. I came to accept myself and love myself with my own humanity and failures.

I finally realized that expecting someone else’s love for me to satisfy me and make me feel okay was never going to happen. I had to love me! I had to have compassion for myself.

I had to forgive myself. And I had to be gentle with myself. When I finally came to love myself, I was able to open an internal door to let the powerful Divine Love actually come in and love me. Until I was able to accept and love myself, there was no way I could believe that a Divine Love could love me. In this union I finally found the satisfaction that I had been seeking all along.

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
