To me, self-love means self-acceptance & self-compassion.
It means being AWARE of your thoughts, words, actions & reactions.
It means REALIZING that you are human.
It means knowing that you are NOT what happened to you.
It means LETTING GO of the idea of perfection.
It means being able to FORGIVE yourself.
It means trusting in yourself & your abilities.
It means being able to recognize your worth and your value.
It means being grateful for what you DO have.
It means showing up in your life and being
FULLY interested. (no half ass anything)
Self-love means being AUTHENTICALLY and UNAPOLOGETICALLY you.
But know that the journey of self-love is Not an overnight process.
You must go through pain, darkness, self-doubt, shame, guilt, loneliness, solitude, obscurity & many unpleasant feelings before you discover your own beauty.
Don’t go looking for love outside of yourself. It’s already within you!
An ‘Educated Target’ is a narcissist’s worst nightmare because targets are grounded in reality and narcissists are not grounded in reality. Therefore, if the target chooses, it is easy to use the narcissist’s and sociopath’s weaknesses against them. Narcissists are addicted to supply and very gullible, making them quite easy to counter manipulate. Educated empaths are smarter than sociopaths and narcissists. Empaths are capable of abstract thought and creativity which is why targets are able to come up with very creative ways to counter manipulate abusers.
The delivery in this video is awkward but the overall message is important which is: Stay strong and get toxic people out of your life.
