DIGNITY FIRST:: We have been conditioned to believe that someone else's ADORATION will put us at EASE but how often is that really TRUE and how long does it LAST?
And on the other side, sometimes people feel ENTITLED to our attention simply BECAUSE and I think we all know how that goes. Does it make us want to pay attention to them? NOPE. It makes us want to run. Feeling like we are some kind of Bandaid, BALM, trinket, or trophy for someone else is not especially APPEALING.
It's ok to not feel totally WHOLE. To not always see our own wholeness. I do think, though, that committing our ACTIONS toward the recognition of that wholeness is worthwhile. Be HONEST with yourself about where that CRAVING is coming from, either your own or someone else's.
