If you look around at the people who have love, you’ll see that they’re all different. Your lack of love has nothing to do with your size, your quirks, your personality.
You owe nothing to your younger self. You are not responsible for becoming the person you once thought you’d be.
You pursue what you love, even if not as your full-time job.
You have so much to give. You know you have so much to give. But saying that is the least chill thing there is – so you’re left to wonder which casual fling will eventually develop into something more.
Light candles, drink wine, play your favorite music, cook yourself dinner and make it feel just as good as when you had plans to go out with someone.
Suffering is you pressing up against a block that stands between where you are and what you want to be.
“Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it.” ― Gautama Buddha
If you had to live tomorrow on repeat for the rest of your life, what would you do?
It is so nauseatingly easy to get caught up – lost, even – in the little minutiae of dating. So easy, in fact, you can forget that a missed call or cancelled date or dissolution of a two-week-old fling isn’t the end of the damn world.
Extraordinary people are just that – rare. Recognizing this doesn’t mean you’re giving up on your potential, it means you’re dissolving the illusions you have about what it means to be your whole self and live your best life.
