Today I want to discuss Core Belief # 5: I have to give up me so I can take care of others.
Most women know this one intimately: we are taught and modeled it all our lives. It is a strong holdover from the days where “the little woman’s job is to stay home and take care of the kids…and the home…and the meals…and the husband.” It was our duty to put ourselves on the back burner while we served everyone else.
Obviously, times have changed. We have earned more status and liberation in society. We are free to create us anew. However, those old frequencies lurk in our subconscious, often cautioning us not to “love ourselves too much so we can take care of everyone else.”
So, my question to the channel is: what is the determining factor that creates the balance of self-love and service to those we love? What is the question we can ask ourselves for clarity? And it is…
HOW CAN I MOVE FORWARD IN SELF LOVE SO I CAN LOVE OTHERS MORE?
When we approach giving in that way, we do not go into overwhelm and resentment. We stay in the balance of love for self and love for giving to others. In that way, everyone wins.
