[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Allow others to be who they are

Allow others to be who they are, to do what they do and to have what they
have. Do not judge them and do not have emotional attachments and
expectations of them. They are what, who and how they are. If that is
different to who, what and how you are, so be it. Accept, honour, respect,
allow and support who YOU are. Accept, honour, respect, allow and support
who they are. The Law of Allowing

Oh we love to fix people, we love to tell them what they should and
shouldn't be doing, how best to live, how best to love. Sometimes we do it
all in the name of love and sometimes in the name of eo and control. Other
times we are just plain ole nosy and not living our own lives.

Whatever the reason, the fact is that loving people enough to allow them to
live without judgement is a big step. It involves courage, and lack of
expectations. For humans this is now unfortunately outside of our norm. We
love to give advice, tell people what to do and get upset when the people
ignore us.

If you love people for anything love them enough to allow them to live
their own life while the love you enough for you to love yours

We are all on our own path, some of the things we do and go through,
someone else may not understand or accept. The diversity of people and
their lives is what makes the world interesting

The best thing about it all is that we get to choose, we get to choose who
we have in our tribe.
