Our hearts are filled with love, but that love cannot surface and manifest in our lives until we let go of our past hurts, heal our emotional wounds, and change our behaviors in our present lives. After we go through the hard work to transform our lives, we finally accept ourselves, love ourselves, and gain the capacity to love others.
I have heard those in the spiritual community say, “Treat others as you would like to be treated,” but if we loath ourselves, we do not have the capacity to love others. This is what I have observed. People live with self loathing, fear, anger, and rage caused by their emotional wounds from their past and present lives. They become hateful, abusive, manipulative, and cruel. Hurt people hurt people, and that is clear to me now.
In the past, I wanted desperately for others to love and accept me. Now, I realize that I do not need everyone to love and accept me as I already love and accept myself. In fact, I do not want acceptance from abusers, cheaters, liars, offenders, philanders, etc. and do not want to vibrate at the same frequency as I do not want to attract these individuals into my life.
For these individuals, we send them love, but we move along on different paths. When we no longer vibrate at the same frequency as them, we will no longer attract them into our lives, and we then know that we are moving forward in the right direction.
