If you want respect, master your craft. • If you want to make a sale, practice non-neediness. Desperation stinks and people can sense it from a distance. • If you want to make money, solve someone’s problem or delight them. It’s better if you do both. • If you want to look cool then you better not follow me. Because I’m the leader of ‘uncool’ species🤴😂
We all have shadows within us. They don’t ever go away. We just learn new capacities to love. So when you avoid and neglect those parts of yourself, they become darker and will always show up in other ways to try and break through. But do not be afraid of them. They are here to help you grow. Be patient with yourself, don’t rush, and meet them in your own time and space. Get to know them so deeply that you start to crack open and shed light into the dark corners. Welcome them into your life, and allow them to show you where you still have work to do. See the beauty in them, in the struggle, in the pain, in the journey. Take pride in them, and love them for everything they are and everything they have taught you. Without them, you wouldn’t be the person you are today. Nurture them, and begin the process of truly accepting yourself. In all of your parts. Not just the parts you like, but especially in the parts that challenge you. When we are able to love ourselves in these moments, it becomes a little easier to be able to accept others just as they are. Shadows and all. Not changing anything, until you’re ready. You’re beautiful, just as you are. I mean it. Show me your shadows, and I’ll love you right back.
