Every year, I slip offline to slip into humanness. Humans are influenced by society and conditioned to believe something is missing and seeking outside of yourself will fill that void. This belief may be applied to relationships in that one person can fill your voids. Getting likes on a post or love from another person can become an addiction where we seek to gain that worth from outside of ourselves. People and platforms aren't there to make us feel whole because we already are, their purpose is to expand us further.
More on relationships... Sometimes, when we attract this love, we get scared and push it away, because we doubt our own lovability. When we doubt our own lovability it makes us do some sabotaging things. I've been on the receiving and giving end of this. We are human. It happens. Rather than ask "why did it happen to me?" reframe the question to "what am I learning?" Let go of holding onto these stories from the past, they don't identify you. When we hold onto our story too much, it gets us in a trap of consistently attempting to heal the past, rather than make the behavioral choices that create what we want in the present and for the future. Get out of your head and into your body, get off the screens and dig your toes in the soil. 💓🐙🍦
