This was a topic that I thought about writing about when I first started my blog. That was back in 2018 before my “awakening.” My mindset has shifted from a state of being anxious and depressed and having feelings of unworthiness to a state of confidence. I had moved past anxiety and depression and started reflecting on life and love.
I wondered, for all of the women out there who are afraid of love and afraid of getting hurt, where they were at in their life – emotionally? I know for me that I felt confident in some areas, yet I had a lot of insecurities when it came to feeling loved. So, I started thinking about others who may be struggling in that area. It is really important to develop a healthy, loving, confident self-concept. Because when you do that, then that is what you experience being reflected back to you. I realize that now. Prior to my awakening, I thought things were happing to me without realizing I was the cause. My beliefs and assumptions were what was being reflected back to me.
Happy and Confident
So, my question is, are you happy and confident in yourself? Have your built or are you building a life for yourself, free from trying to please anyone else? If you are someone who is afraid of love and afraid of getting hurt, then ask yourself why? Whatever the reason may be, you can change it by simply changing your self-concept. That means, changing your beliefs and assumptions about yourself, your worthiness, who you are as a person. Make those new beliefs and assumptions conform to the person you want to be, the things you want to experience versus the old ones.
The tagline of my blog is “Change Your Story, Change Your Life” and it is literally true. There is no reason to fear love, to fear being hurt. First of all, fear is only an illusion. Second of all, every single being is made in the likeness of God, is God and God is Love. You are Love! On the surface, it may seem like such a frivolous statement. What does it mean actually? Well, you are essentially perfect, a divine being. You’ve taken on the conditioning of this world as a story you tell yourself. That story is malleable.
I realize it is one thing to say, “You are Love.” I get it, it can take time to change the conditions of this world, the story you tell yourself. I just want you to know that there is absolutely no reason to fear love. So, if you are like I used to be and fear getting hurt, I hope you’ll at least try to embrace the idea that you are love and there is no reason to fear it. Start there!!
