"We accept the love we think we deserve, we know we deserve much better but still we stick with the one that doesn’t deserves us.."
childhood scars all of us in different ways.
i’m not speaking about physical scars, nor am i speaking about abuse.
it’s subconsciously that we are scarred..and many don’t even know or won’t acknowledge this well into adulthood.
our parents as well meaning and loving..are still human..
and can make mistakes.
perhaps not even directly to us.
but a child’s mind in it’s sponge like quest for knowledge of the world
gets coloured by every single little nuance..
especially self esteem.
that age old question of : am i loveable?
and until we make peace with our childhood past and dig deeper to reach a full understanding..
we will continue into our adulthood to make mistakes..
and one of those mistakes has to do with love..
and our ability to navigate, give & receive it.
we, each of us have our own stories and it’s only when we dig deeply
do we discover them and in that discovery..heal
and in that healing…learn about healthy love.
