I found myself feeling unloved and unhappy. I kept focusing on all the things that weren’t working and all the things that didn’t feel good. In doing that, I just kept swirling around in feelings that felt bad.
While I was stuck there, I didn’t realize I was blocking myself. I was missing all kinds of opportunites to see just how loved I was and just how happy I could be.
It wasn’t so much that my partner was or wasn’t doing anything…it was that I was so focused on things being a particular way, I didn’t notice all the other ways he was showing me love. I missed seeing all the ways I was loved and had love in my life.
I realized it was me stopping myself from feeling what I wanted to feel by getting in my own way. And when I realized this, I suddenly saw all the beautiful gestures, all the loving moments and all the kind things my partner had been doing. I left my fear and unhappiness behind and I was able to let it all go and embrace all the love and happiness that I wanted.
It was a good reminder that it’s all perspective and where I decide to put my focus and attention.
