[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Vibes on top of Vibes

Loving yourself means you are willing not to participate in activities or
with others who cannot give you what you need. When you tell the truth
about what you want, you stand a better chance of getting it. If you
withhold that truth in fear that you will not or cannot have it, chances
are you will have a temporary experience of happiness at the expense of
experiencing fulfillment and joy When we live at the highest vibration of
who we are, we attract more of that vibration into our lives.

The most honorable and loving thing you can do for yourself and those you
love is to tell the truth. Telling the truth is a sign that you respect
yourself and them. Respect is an essential ingredient of love. When you
tell the truth about who you are, you provide others with the opportunity
to know you and to be intimate with you.

Big big big lesson here for me.....

Vulnerability is just part of the whole thing, be willing to be vulnerable,
it really is a sign of strength

The game, you know the one where we pretend to be "perfect" so that they
will like us - work, friends,those we date or want to date

or the other one where we show up as someone else? the mask we keep to be
liked and accepted

or maybe the game of not speaking up or asking for what we want to keep the
peace or keep the other party "happy"

Tell the truth

Show up as yourself

Its a risk yes it is but do it early, sift out the shit! get the lesson and
get out the mess

or get the lesson and be at peace!
