Love Loving

The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.

Ernest Hemingway

Love Loving Yourself

How special are you in terms of your own opinion? Concerning this question in my own life, I came to see that from the age of seven years (I cannot recall anything before that time) to just a few years ago; I had many fears and insecurities.

When I was a teenager, I embarked on a long-time affair – with a mirror, yes a mirror! And probably connected to the fact that I noticed the opposite sex found me attractive. Naturally, I wanted to take full advantage of this newfound interest.

My Love Affair

Love yourself to Freedom

While all this was taking place, unawares to me, there was the subconscious surfacing of my fears and insecurities. As a consequence, these began competing with my mirror affair. Something else that climbed onto the stage of my love affair at this time was the increasing use of my imagination. I began pretending to be someone I was not (a type of Walter Mitty – by comparison.)

Love Yourself First

Today I know that I could have saved myself heartache and grief. These fears and insecurities would cause me to be co-dependent on the partners with whom I loved above myself. I discovered self-love only a few years ago. Since that discovery, I broke the chains of co-dependency.

Ancient Words of Wisdom

An ancient scripture reveals that we must love others as we love ourselves. The ancient text also states there is no greater wisdom than this action. What we don’t immediately illumine is this:

‘We cannot love anyone too much if we don’t love ourselves as much.’

Advice-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Advice

Featured Photo by Thea Upsplash.com

I have discovered, advice from others must be dealt with carefully. To listen to advice is one thing, to act on it is quite another. Advice for which I have not asked I have learned to be particularly cautious about.

I never approach anything in my life with an attitude of wariness. I much prefer to be fearless in tackling everything.

Since my youth, I have been a adventurous person. This state has led me through many painful and frightening experiences but I would do it all over again – on one condition; I know what I know now.

Many are the encounters in my life, where I never saw the pitfalls ahead of me. I simply plowed ahead oblivious of the dangers – which is just as well. Then I saw a horse, in busy traffic, with blinkers on and I realized I was not alone in my folly or my accomplishment

Wisdom Snippets From Peter-Live a Full Life

Herd

Four Wisdom Snippets To Help You love Life.

I never follow the herd, in spite of a traditional upbringing. Essentially, I am a free-thinker and an up-streamer. Have you ever wondered why you can’t follow the herd? The answer is simple; you are not a sheep, you are a free-thinker.

I am grateful to have discovered prayer and laughter have something common, in my life; they both make me feel happier after.

I trust the words of correction from a true friend, however painful; but words, no matter how sweet, from someone who does not love me are like kisses from an enemy.

Daily learning and accumulating knowledge are of vital importance to me. Yet I understand knowledge without wisdom is like a ship without a rudder.

Weekly Words of Wisdom-Forgive Quickly.

Forgive

Feature Photo by Brett Jordan Upsplash.com

Decide to Forgive

I have learned, mostly from painful experiences to never let my anger cause me to react and later regret how I’ve reacted. I’ve found that anger is a single-edged sword with the sharp end facing me. I am the one who pays the bigger price for harboring anger. Especially, I must not carry my anger into my sleep. My anger is one of my emotions that lacks the qualities of sound reasoning. As I enter my sleep I make a statement, I forgive, whoever or whatever has made me angry. I am aware that to forgive is simply a decision, not an emotion. In addition, it is the thought about whoever or whatever has made me angry that is the real issue. As a result, I stop entertaining that thought in my mind immediately. Then I go to sleep, and as I love sleeping, I sleep well.

Power of Human Touch

Human Touch

My Experience

I can to this day, some sixty-eight years later, recall the first time I was kissed by a little girl. Although not one hundred per cent clearly, I still remember her face and her somewhat full rosebud lips. More than this I recall that she took my hand, held it fast, turned and kissed me on full on the lips, whilst I stood in a tremor of fright and absolute delight. We were two eight-year-olds.
