Self-Love vs. Self-Abandonment
Welcome - we are glad you came for help!
Self-abandonment is the underlying cause of much pain and shame, while shame – which is perpetuated by self-abandonment – also fuels self-abandonment. So much will change in your life when you learn how to love yourself, and you break this painful cycle.
Every relationship in our lives offers us a gift of growth. Think about your most difficult relationships - family, friends, co-workers. Today, pick one to focus on. How is this person a mirror for you? How do you not take care of yourself around this person? What do you want from this person that you are not giving to yourself?
