Loving Mr. or Mrs. Wrong 

Yesterday, Sophia Jones and I were having a broad discussion about love, life, growth, and evolving. The conversation was so good that the time slipped away, and the next thing I know I was receiving a phone call that my date was downstairs waiting. I wasn’t dressed and was going to be late for dinner and the Brian McKnight concert lol! A brief summary of our discussion is how it is confusing that individuals continue to choose people who are unavailable or consistently pick people who will never love them. We had the realization that it will never be a happy ending if we continue to select the same individuals. Therapist Corner: As we mature on this journey of life we began to understand that our wants and needs should be evolving as we grow. In reality, with maturity, our lives should be shifting toward new directions, people, and priorities. Change isn’t something that is easy, but its necessary to evolve. The key to love is finding someone who can love all of your imperfections, and allow them to love you. Enjoy this blog? Please spread the word 🙂

This morning I was reading my daily word before starting my day at work. I haven’t blogged in a few months because I have been busy enjoying life. Before I went to bed last night I thought I am exhausted and I have to be at work in the morning, but I glanced over and I felt a great feeling coursing through my veins. I felt happiness, love, peace, and excitement about a lot of things and what the future holds. My patients ask me all the time “How do I find peace, joy, love, and happiness in my life?” Changing yourself is a skill, a decision, and a process. All three of these usually take time. Continue to remove old, negative feelings and outdated beliefs. Stay committed to healing and discovering your soul, even when you question if it is worth it. Love yourself. Love others. Self-love comes from understanding even the deepest and most painful parts of our story and loving it. Self-love is important because when we fall in love with ourselves, we allow other people to love us because we deserve it. When we choose us, we meet other individuals who choose themselves, and they make our lives and our mornings ever so much brighter even if you are not a morning person like me.
