Want to love more freely, unconditionally? Accept that no one owes you a damn thing.
It was difficult in the beginning…to accept full responsibility for my happiness, for feeling loved…to really embrace that it (my sense of worthiness) was all in my control, and that I couldn’t provide it for others either. However, it has been one of the greatest catapults to freedom my heart has ever experienced. You see, when you take charge of your own happiness and lovingly accept others as they are (not responsible for YOUR emotions, but only their own), you release your expectations of what they SHOULD be doing FOR YOU…this makes room for how you COULD be FILLING YOUR OWN bucket, or in this case your heart. But, it also makes a greater space for something else. True, raw, heart-centered LOVE.
Internal space isn’t confined to the laws of physics…when you release things that aren’t serving you, or the highest good (God, source), it frees up an exponential amount of space from that which it held inside you. So, this love you make room for (by releasing others from being responsible for your happiness) creates an incredible environment within…for you to unconditionally love not only yourself (as you are), but also others (as they are). We are accountable only to ourselves in matters of the heart. You have the power to be happy, to feel loved and embrace the fullness of who you are, your worthiness. You can NOT (but temporarily) provide this for another person. You can give another person ALL you have, but it will not fill them up, if they aren’t holding their own bucket first.
When you take charge of your own happiness, you lovingly accept yourself, and others, "as is" and can truly appreciate the wealth they bring into your life.
