When this came up as a theme to write about, I had 2 options to choose from. You have a bounce in your tread or how to bounce back when something happens. To bounce back is the first to be addressed because I truly believe the result will be to have that bounce in your step again. We all go through different challenges in our lifetime. They might be different; they might be difficult. Still, I do believe that what is going on is also holding the key to healing. In order to find out what the root issue is, it requires a lot of hard work, sweat and tears for sure.
When we meet people, we are attracted to them, or not. It’s not just about gender or race, age or sexual attraction. There is this like an inner compass, that shows you, who is in your comfort zone and who isn’t. It is interesting to watch for your own to whom you respond positive or negative from the first you get.
There may be two people who have been dealt the same cards in life. Two individuals with all the same life circumstances. One is miserable, stressed out, and looks twenty years older than he is. The other is the happiest guy you could ever meet and looks twenty years younger than he is. How can this be? The answer is that it is not our life circumstances that make life difficult rather it is the attitude that we view our lives with. Those who are capable of seeing the humor in life and take life lightly will be able to do the best with the circumstances they have been given.
The moment I decided to write about dignity, thoughts were following themselves up about the meaning it has for me. It has to do with being honorable, respect and worthiness in my opinion. It also has to do with the way we perceive each other. Behaving with dignity, sometimes is challenging when we are feeling hurt or not understood. When people are tending to disrespect you, making you feel degraded, not worthy. It also has to do with the way we perceive ourselves. Self-worth is a quality, which makes it easier to respond with more calmness and respect. When people are treating you without respect for your efforts, or the work you do, how to respond to that.
Is it possible to act with disrespecting yourself, and then when confronted with a situation, come out the other end with dignity? We sometimes can lose respect for someone we love and hold dear, caused by the way they act. When a loved one is facing addiction, for instance, acting out under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Judgment plays a big part in the way we look at ourselves as well as others. When we do something and feel ashamed about it afterward, we also face losing self-respect. Not being worthy to be loved or disrespected for the way we handle a situation like betraying a loved one. How to handle this with dignity?
And it is not just about food to keep you healthy in mind and body. Food will definitely help, and unless you clear your Heart and Soul from negative inputs, you are not going to be a whole, renewed, rebalanced human angel.
The impact old emotional wounds have on our human body is far greater then we like to think of, most of the times. If there are undetected issues lingering around deeply buried sometimes subconsciously or unconsciously, they will be triggered at times and will have their influence on your body as well. It can manifest itself even by scars, depending on what kind of injury is manifesting itself outward by your soul’s experience.
This topic is linked with betrayal if you take a look at all those synonym explanations. It has been played out I think, as old as humanity is after the split when the duality became the norm in our world.
Like cheating, breach of trust, the wounds that are inflicted are deeply felt and hurtful. It has many consequences for all parties concerned no doubt. So what is causing this kind of treachery, the deceit of the ones you love and have your trust. Is it lack of self-worth, self-love and self-respect that makes someone decide to start a web of lies. Root cause of all of the double-dealing is apparently fear of being loved, yet not able to love oneself deeply.
Here is my little self-love poem for you.
A special treat and reminder for you beautiful souls out there.
Accept that wrinkly belly you have
Accept that rounded nose and that beauty mark on your back
Accept your feelings for that person, for that pet
Accept your mood swings
Accept your “dark side”
Accept the wholeness you are
“…You have to stay true to yourself and to yourself only. I know it can seem that you are being selfish or egoist. But actually, there’s nothing wrong with that. Putting yourself and your own love and well being first is an act of love towards yourself…”
I wanted to start this new article with some words from my previous post.
As I already told you, you should stay true to yourself, do what you feel you want to do and do it with love.
But there’s a small risk you could encounter for loving yourself. And that is, that people may think you are a “bad person” because you’re loving yourself “too much”.
But hey, here are 2 things:
