My parents would have loved me different, would I love (myself) differently?
We certainly expect things, and often the most from our closest circle.People do what they do and how they do it because of the person they are and the affirmations they believe in. Nothing is personal but everything is intrapersonal, even with our own blood. The way they chose to love or mistreat us has little to do with us, but everything to do with them.We don't get to tell people how to love us but we definitely chose to participate or not in their loving.
What if...We were the kids of our parents to become better parents to ourselves?
