How many of you out there have gotten caught in the trap of “perfection” as a means of getting the love you crave? Yes, I said trap. It becomes a prison and a never ending battle that only leaves you exhausted. If it is love you are wanting in your life, I suggest you look inside to find the joy. What makes you happy? What can you include in your daily existence that brings a smile to your face? Connection to people, places and things that are in alignment with your core values and beliefs will not only allow you to keep your spirit in tact, it will allow you to fly!
When you attempt to “people please” to gain approval of someone else, you often become someone you’re not. The authentic self is diminished and so is your self esteem. For those of you who do this (and you know who you are), is it ever enough? Be honest with yourself. One tactic doesn’t work, so you try another one. Before you know it, your self respect gets lost, and so does the respect of the person you are trying to please.
So take the chance of pleasing yourself and see what happens! The truer you are to your heart’s desire the more it all miraculously falls into place. Pick up your pieces and soar!
