Heal By Loving Yourself Unconditionally

Heal by loving yourself unconditionally.

Baron has a bad habit. He’s used to distancing himself from people. Whether relatives or friends, he keeps all of them at arm’s length.

“I guess I’m afraid of getting hurt again,” he remarked during a Skype therapy session.

He knows he needs people in his life. Yet there’s a part of him that leaves him loveless, disconnected always. Instead of relating out of his true self, Baron wears a mask to “look good.”

Writer C.S. Lewis once wrote about love and the risk of being hurt. He observed that love requires vulnerability.

Lewis suggested that there is no safe investment when a person risks loving and connecting with others. He stated that loving will lead to your heart being “wrung and possibly broken.”

After experiencing a sting of betrayal and rejection from family and friends, Baron started healing by discovering how to love himself unconditionally.

I’m reminded of that little book by John Powell entitled “Why Am I Afraid To Tell You Who I Am?” The author quoted a person who answered the question of the title:

“I am afraid to tell you who I am, because, if I tell you who I am, you may not like who I am, and it’s all that I have.”

In order for you to love and connect to others, you must then overcome that fear and let other people discover who you really are. It’s letting go of the ”false face.”

That entails healing by loving and accepting yourself first unconditionally, so you can love others in the same way.

As one statement I posted once in my FB put it,

“Mental health is loving and accepting your self, no matter what people say or how you look. Learn to screw.”

Heal by loving yourself unconditionally.

“Why do I break down? I break down because I cannot allow myself to think highly of myself, and as my self image deteriorates, I despise myself more and more until I can no longer see worth or value in myself.” — Dr. William A. Miller

“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” (1 John 4:18)
