It’s funny, don’t you think?
Our reliance on others to “make us whole”?
For our partners to “complete us”?
For our families to “be there for us”?
And then the rise of our loneliness when our friends, family, and partners fail to make us “whole”?
I find it funny now, because somewhere, deep down, we know that we are enough. While we have evolved into a species thriving on the ties of our social groups and acceptance by those social groups and norms, we are born as complete individuals. We have within us the power to exist as a complete, whole, and unique individual.
While social support, relationships, friendships, and love, make life infinitely better and joyful to experience, it is important to recognise that we aren’t incomplete, or broken, or a half of a whole.
We have reached a point in our lives, where we must look at ourselves, and reaffirm the fact that, I am enough.
And we need to say it as many times as it takes to believe it.
I am enough.
You are enough.
Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Lots of love,
