[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] What happens when you resist?

Then you learn about love. You learn to look at relationships as they really are and not as you would have them be. You learn that alone
does not mean lonely.

You stop trying to control people, situations and outcomes. You learn to distinguish between guilt and responsibility and the importance of
setting boundaries and learning to say NO.

You also stop working so hard at putting your feelings aside, smoothing things over and ignoring your needs. The Awakening

The need to be right, the need to be in control! Two things that human
beings fight tooth and nail for! Including me! No one likes to be wrong!
Right??

But I have learnt the constant need for those two things robs you of a
peaceful existence and I am not saying to take everything anyone dishes out
to you! Throughout life we develop ideas on how others should be, how they
should behave, and how they should treat us. When things are not as we
think they should be we resist! People will be who they be! Good luck in trying to change them! What you
can do is choose!

Iyanla says is so well " Do not tell yourself that you do not feel what you
feel, simply surrender it to your God self and ask that your thoughts and
emotions be harmonized and brought into alignment for your highest good"

Today I surrender to my highest self, my god self because I have learnt
that what you resist persist! I am going out in the world today with the
attitude that I do all that I can do to the best of my abilities, and when
I get to that point I let it go and in all of that I love myself, honour
myself and accept things as they are!

Happy Monday peeps! Peace!!
