I Love and Accept Myself Affirmation

Affirmative Prayer for Loving and Accepting Yourself

I know that The Universe is the one and only source of my being. Spirit Itself created me. Life Itself lives through me. Love Itself sustains me. I am important and connected part of this spiritual universe.

If The Universe loves me enough to create me and to give me life, then I can love and respect myself no less. Therefore, I no longer believe in unworthiness, limitation, and shame. I no longer believe that I am undeserving of the best life has to offer. I deserve and accept all the good things in life – for myself and everyone else in my world.

I  ACCEPT my own beauty, and I see it reflected in the world around me.

                I  ACCEPT my own power, and I use it wisely.

I  ACCEPT my own worth, and I live abundantly.

                I ACCEPT my own love, and I share it freely.

I  ACCEPT my own potential, and I live it fully.

My past, my false beliefs, and my feeling of unworthiness no longer limit me. I accept full responsibility for my life, my thoughts, my feelings and my actions. I may not always like what I do or how I feel, but I choose always to love myself in the meantime. Never again will I judge myself as undeserving.

Growing and evolving feels good. Accepting responsibility feels good. Giving myself permission to become the person I was meant to be feels good. And I deserve to feel good about myself and my life.

And so it is.

Tolerating Toxic Behavior

Tolerating Toxic Behavior

Written by Randi G. Fine, Narcissistic Abuse Expert

There is no virtue in the tolerance of toxic behavior.” ~Dr. Phil McGraw

Narcissistic abuse victims often tell me that they cannot understand how someone could treat them, such a kind, understanding, accepting, and generous person, so badly. My answer is a simple one. Those with narcissistic personality disorder never target those who are unkind, disagreeable, intolerant and selfish. Why would they? There is no supply there.

Being kind, understanding, accepting, and generous are wonderful virtues to have, but these virtues can become detrimental to our happiness when offered to those who wish to exploit, use, and abuse us.

It would be wonderful to live in a world where everyone has goodness within them; where everyone has redeemable qualities. Unfortunately that is not the nature of the world we live in. There are millions of people walking this earth who, for whatever reason, do not possess the emotional response of affective empathy—the ability to share the emotions of others and/or relate to what the other person is experiencing.

For the sake of survival, those lacking affective empathy must learn to adapt and blend in. Imagine what it would be like to study human behavior every moment of every day for decades. The only possible outcome would be mastery. That is what makes the behavior of one with narcissistic personality disorder so difficult to recognize, and once recognized so difficult to come to terms with. They have mastered the affect of human behavior to the degree of flawlessness. Rational minds are virtually blind to the camouflage.

Rational thinking is useless when dealing with these people. What we see with our eyes or hear with our ears is not indicative of what is true or real.

Kindness and understanding shown towards them is misconstrued and obscured. Virtuous behavior is seen as vulnerability and weakness.

Virtue is a beautiful thing. We should all be kind, loving, and generous—but wise. We must require more from the people who enter our lives. Don’t trust words, always question actions, and never doubt patterns. Narcissists will show and tell you exactly who they are; what their motives are. Believe them. Trust your intuition. It is never wrong.

You Deserve Your Love Picture Quote

Self-Love Quote

You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection. ~Buddha

Positive Self Worth

Having a Positive Self Worth and Self Image

What would happen if we gave up measuring ourselves in terms of inches and years, what we have, and what we have done with our lives, and just celebrated the changes as they came?

What if we stop thinking we need improving and just enjoyed ourselves, our unique feelings and experiences, and believed we are wonderful just the way we are?

What would happen if we gave up our search for truth and happiness altogether and just chose to be truly happy in this moment?

What if, when we looked in the mirror our own best friend would smile back at us and whisper, “You’re beautiful,” because The Universe loves you just the way you are?

Wishing you whole-life-long joy in your heart and in your world.

Self Love Quote

Self-love requires loving every part of ourselves. It requires taking ownership of the child we once were; nurturing it, cherishing it, making peace with it, and then merging the fragmented parts of ourselves into one happy union. ~Randi G Fine~

Loving Self Quote

Our species thrives on the reciprocity of love and kindness. We should always reach out to those in need. But we must show kindness to ourselves before we can show it to others. Each of us must define for ourselves the balance between taking care of ourselves and assisting others, and accept that we cannot be everything to everyone. ~Randi G Fine~

The Journey of a Mother

The Journey of a Mother

Written by Jacque Powers

The young mother set her foot on the path of life. “Is this the long way?” she asked. And the guide said “Yes, and the way is hard. And you will be old before you reach the end of it. But the end will be better than the beginning.” But the young mother was happy, and she would not believe that anything could be better than these years.

So she played with her children, she fed them and bathed them, and taught them how to tie their shoes and ride a bike and reminded them to feed the dog, and do their homework and brush their teeth. The sun shone on them, and the young Mother cried, “Nothing will ever be lovelier than this.”

Then the nights came, and the storms, and the path was sometimes dark, and the children shook with fear and cold, and the mother drew them close and covered them with her arms, and the children said, “Mother, we are not afraid, for you are near, and no harm can come.”

And the morning came, and there was a hill ahead, and the children climbed and grew weary, and the mother was weary. But at all times she said to the children, “A little patience and we are there.” So the children climbed, and as they climbed they learned to weather the storms. And with this, she gave them strength to face the world.

Year after year, she showed them compassion, understanding, hope, but most of all unconditional love. And when they reached the top they said, “Mother, we would not have done it without you.”

The days went on, and the weeks and the months and the years, and the mother grew old and she became little and bent. But her children were tall and strong, and walked with courage. And the other, when she lay down at night, looked up at the stars and said, “This is a better day than the last, for my children have learned so much and are now passing these traits on to their children.”

And when the way became rough for her, they lifted her, and gave her their strength, just as she had given them hers. One day they came to a hill, and beyond the hill, they could see a shining road and golden gates flung wide.

And mother said: “I have reached the end of my journey. And now I know the end is better than the beginning, for my children can walk with dignity and pride, with their heads held high, and so can their children after them.

And the children said, “You will always walk with us, Mother, even when you have gone through the gates.” And they stood and watched her as she went on alone, and the gates closed after her. And they said: “We cannot see her, but she is with us still.

A Mother like ours is more than a memory. She is a living presence. Your Mother is always with you. She’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street, she’s the smell of certain foods you remember, flowers you pick and perfume that she wore, she’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re not feeling well, she’s your breath in the air on a cold winter’s day. She is the sound of the rain that lulls you to sleep, the colors of a rainbow, she is Christmas morning.

Your Mother lives inside your laughter. And she’s crystallized in every tear drop. A mother shows every emotion; happiness, sadness, fear, jealousy, love, hate, anger, helplessness, excitement, joy, sorrow, and all the while, hoping and praying you will only know the good feelings in life.

She’s the place you came from, your first home, and she’s the map you follow with every step you take. She’s your first love, your first friend, even your first enemy, but nothing on earth can separate you. Not time, not space, not even death!
