There was a great Broadway musical called “A Chorus Line” and I loved the big romantic solo, “What I did for Love”, I could perform that song well because I could relate to it. When I look at the choices I have made to make sure that I was loved I can laugh, cry, be angry, and in the end, filled with forgiveness for the 12-year-old girl inside who just wanted people to love her.
What I have learned on my journey is that this 12-year-old part of me still has power and I have to give her a good talking to now and then! I am who I am, I like me, I love this me, and I know that the woman I have become is not only lovable but also deserving of love, without jumping through hoops to get it!
“Today I will notice when I make a choice from the fear of not being loved, and I will gently remind that younger part of me to relax and trust that they are worthy of love.”
