Something I have learned over the past several years. I have always been good at putting up walls around my heart. When I stopped, I was happier – I had more giggles and welcomed people into my life more. But doing so means you will feel more. And when I start feeling more, I have to remind myself of this quote. I have to remind myself that I cannot put the walls back up with sacrificing happy.
Saw this on Wayward Celt’s tumblr. I like it. I think it is important to remember that even when things seem bleak, there is always hope. You just have to wake up and see it.
I like this because it rejects this idea that alone you are incomplete. We find love when we find someone who accepts us as we are. Whether it be a friend or a lover, acceptance of us – celebration of us as a person – is the greatest connection we can make with a person. Because we are complete on our own. People may bring things out in us – for better or worse – but they do not complete us.
Don’t let what you worry about – what you fear – take control of your life. It’s not a way to live – in worry and fear.
