July 4th | A deep truth that I am ready to embrace?
Card pulled | Ten of Swords | The Linestrider Tarot Deck
Not everyone that comes into your life, not everyone you love, not everyone that you grow with, is meant to stay.
It’s been a year of closing cycles. It’s been a year of learning that if I am not loved and adored by every person I meet, it does not make me a bad person.
I had an excessive and unyielding need to be loved. And I could sit hear and blame by childhood, blame my traumas, or my mental health. But when I strip it back to its very core, the reason I needed to be adored by everyone, is because I didn’t love myself.
The past year has changed all that. I began to learn how to love myself conditionally, and no longer accept ‘bad love’.
Through loving myself my friendship circle dwindled in size, but bloomed in unconditional love.
