The good, the bad and the ugly. We tend to our own worst critics and give our love away to others, in hope they return the same love in return. If this is you and it leaves you feeling yucky, negative and unfulfilled, you are probably loving yourself wrong. Why? You expect others to treat you how you treat them. It doesn't work that way. You can't control or demand others to make you happy.
You must learn how to love yourself, forgive yourself, educate yourself and heal thy self. You don't have to wait for anyone, you just have to show up for yourself. You, and only you know what past patterns keep occurring, where your energy flows in your present and what hopes and fears you may encounter in the future. You are an extremely powerful being of light! Light wants you to love all the aspects of your soul, even the good, the bad and the ugly parts. Love will set you free!
