I can give myself whatever it is that I am seeking from another person.
For example, say I wanted to hear from a special someone, yet the reality of the situation was that I didn’t hear from that person. As soon as my expectation is met with the reality of the situation (not hearing from that person), I become sad and a tad angry.
So I ask myself a question: What would I have in this moment, that I don’t have right now, if I was to hear from this person?
ANSWER: Love, appreciation, being cared for, etc.
Hmm… well if my feelings are the only thing that would change, can’t I give those experiences to myself? Can’t I imagine what it would feel like to receive that from another person and then give it to myself?
YES, why yes I CAN!
I can give myself LOVE, APPRECIATION, and acts of kindness, the same way any other person could.
Wow, what a great and humbling SURPRISE.
The love and appreciation that I give to myself, feels like a thousand shooting stars.
What a feeling!
