Following your dreams requires putting yourself out there in the world, risking rejection, and going into the unknown. If you let your fear stop you, you will not reach your full potential. Your fear is simply an invitation for you rise up to your next level. Facing the thing you are afraid of will require that you let go of who you thought you were and all that no longer serves you.
In a world where everyone tends to be self-centered, rather than focusing on what you can get from them, feel into what you can give, and how you can serve their souls. Be a blessing that adds value to everyone you meet.
Before you become intimate with anyone, you must have an intimate relationship with yourself. And by that I mean that you need to sharpen your self-awareness - including what has made you the person you are, what you have to offer a partner, and even what you need to improve. This complete package is what you are asking another person to love, so YOU need to love it first.
When people speak negatively about you, rather than attacking back, realize that their opinion is simply an opportunity to respond with love. Don’t let someone’s smallness bring you down to their level because when you do, you give them power over you. When you respond with love, you expand. Those that attack you are actually the ones in most need of your love. Recognize that your “haters” are angels in disguise. So step up and live boldly. Share your love and your light. By sharing your gifts with the world, you inspire your haters to step into their greatness.
