If it’s not your job to love yourself, well…then whose is it? It may seem easier to find someone else to do it for you, but this love is incomplete. It is conditional, and also creates dependency as we then rely on another to fill the void of love. And when this love is removed or simply not what we need, then what are we left with?
We are meaning makers. Humans are hard-wired to search for meaning. To understand ourselves and our experience. This personal exploration may be a source of great joy, or of struggle and confusion.
How we choose to answer the essential questions - Who am I? and Why am I here? form the basis of our experience of both Self and of the world around us. In essence, we create meaning. We choose our experience based on how we see ourselves and what we identify with.
