What I Don’t Want You to Know About Me

 

What I don’t want you to know about me is this: I’m not perfect.

I don’t want you to know that I want to control how others behave and feel when they are around me. I’ve wanted relationships to be perfect, for people to act in the way that I want them to. I want to control others at times, and I get frustrated if people did not act the way I wanted them to.

Coming Back to Love

Life is not about staying in the vibration of love all the time. It’s about learning to come back to love. No one is perfect. We’re all perfectly imperfect.

For When you’re Hurting

Just remember when you feel unsafe, all the safe things you desire are protected within your heart. All this hurt is coming from outside of you. Pain is an experience, it isn’t you. What you’re looking for is in your own heart.

Your heart connects you to the skies and the ground. Your heart links your inside to the outside. Your heart is the bridge between the physical and the spiritual. What lives in your heart shall come to you in time. Until it does come— your safe place is within your own heart.
