Aren´t you tired to search in vain?

Isn´t it strange?

We invariably expect others to accept and love us, yet we don´t approve of and accept ourselves. In fact, others respond to how you see yourself, yes, to what you give or not give to yourself.

How can others be generous with us, if we are stingy with ourselves?

The more we try to find ourselves through others, letting exterior circumstances define who we are, the more stressed, unfulfilled and unhappy we become.

We secretly crave for others´approval, that is why we are so
concerned and afraid about their opinion, as in fact, we are afraid
to look inside ourselves.

As long as you fail to see that your own approval of yourself is the answer to the contentment and fulfillment you obsessively seek for in others, you will be the slave of everybody´s whims and mischief.

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

  1. 100% agree – that’s the grand paradox.
    How can we accept what we can’t give?
    Again, it goes back to giving YOURSELF what you need.
    We all have the capability, yet we fail to see it is our own love/acceptance we desire.
    Oh, these tricky, tricky mirrors!

      It is a hard one:

      I have to admit that many times I don´t know how to give myself what I need…I don´t know how to rightly heed myself always…
      And the tricky part is that more often than not we live at the mercy of others…learning to love ourselves first when someone else shows us love…or unconditional acceptance…And of course, this is to give away yourself…

      So again…- the great skill to love yourself is not an easily learned lesson…
