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.
