The sensitive-anxious-creative soul is also the risk averse soul. As I’ve written in recent posts, this has been an evolutionary advantage as we have served as the sentries and scouts in the community: the tribe relied on our heightened sensitivity to keep everyone safe. But if we’re going to harness the gifts inherent in this temperament, we must learn to work with fear in a new way, one that doesn’t take it at face value. When you’re risk averse, you’ll be more afraid to risk your heart in love, and relationship anxiety will often take hold as a protective mechanism to try to circumvent the possibility of loss and hurt. When you’re risk averse, you’ll be more aware of danger in the outer world and can easily fall prey to a mindset that wants to keep your world small and your exploratory circumference close to home. The task is to honor the fear without indulging it, for taking an attitude of, “Buck up! There’s nothing to be afraid of,” never works and only serves to further entrench the fear. •
This can be especially challenging when raising highly sensitive children. A writer for lifehacker.com recently contacted me to interview me for a piece she’s writing on how to gently push highly sensitive kids outside their comfort zones (I’ll share the link once it’s published). It’s a great question, and a tricky one, for with the highly sensitive we’re dancing on the threshold of honoring the sensitivity yet also encouraging them to extend themselves in safe ways. If we over-honor (which can happen through the attachment parenting model), we run the risk of actually creating more anxiety as we’re sending them the message that they can’t handle fear. But if we over-push (which is the mainstream model), we create trauma. Ah, the dance of parenting where there are no definite answers or easy-to-follow roadmaps! The path, as far as I can see, is pushing where there is some buy-in or intrinsic motivation, which means learning to follow the natural sparks and interest of the child. More on this in The Wisdom of Anxiety. •

These are my people , this is my tribe, this is where I feel safe and this is where I finally belong......this is not a picture of us living our “best life”. This is us living life the best that we can! We have always stuck together through the toughest of times and they have stood behind me pushing me every step of the way. I haven’t always made the best decisions and often have heard them ask me “what the hell is wrong with you?” Most times I couldn’t give them an adequate answer but what they have never asked me is “mom do you love me?” “Mom are we gonna be ok? Mom are we gonna have enough food to eat or a place to live?” They know without a shadow of a doubt, even though we have done this with absent fathers and no family to help us, their mother will not stop fighting for all of us! I hope everyone can take a minute and share their truth as it is and stop sharing what the world expects based on who “they” want you to be. I’ve never fit into any mold of any kind and I hope the best gift I have passed down to those boys is that they are comfortable enough not fitting in as well. ❤️

🌻 GoodMorning Lovelies 🌻
Have you ever felt as though God doesn’t like you or care about you. These are lies. God loves you with a perfect love. He is motivated by, & acts upon His agape love for His creation. Agape is a Greek word for an ultimate self-sacrificing kind of love. Agape love is the kind that is always associated with the love of God & the way He extends that perfect love toward His creation. It’s a type of love that we’ll never know or experience apart from God. We can’t get it from others, because a natural, human kind of love falls short of agape love.
Most relationships are built on an if/then kind of love, better known as conditional love. If you do what I want you to do, then I will love you. If you love me, then I will love you back. In contrast, God’s love is unconditional. He loves us even when we mess up. He has the ability to love those who do not even love Him back. It is a love that God extended to us when we didn’t deserve it. He gives it to us & doesn’t expect us to pay it back, because we never could. It is truly an unconditional kind of love. “God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us”. (Romans 5:8) You don’t have to try really hard to get God to like you, because He already deeply, perfectly, unconditionally loves you. He loved you before you ever had a chance to do things for Him. He even loved you before He created you. 🤗Put on your loved smile & have a worshipful Friday! #photocredit@dudessijs#love#agape#agapelove#unconditionallove#godslove#helovesus#unshaken#faith#passiton

No Marriage is perfect...It is a union of 2 imperfect souls who with a little thoughtfulness, patience & love...add a lot of life to the number of years we live together. Falling more in love with you. Thank you @devanshiraj912
As I was driving home tonight I was thinking about how we are always striving for wholeness as the holy grail of twin flame union. As in the* you have to be whole within yourself before you can come into union* idea.
To an extent. Yes. But I have a sneaking suspicion that wholeness is a bit like being completely healed... Which is a lifelong process... Yes we may experience it from time to time where we feel completely complete and fulfilled by ourselves, but we are also humans who *need people*. Humans with counterpart souls who complement us perfectly at that. So wanting and needing your twin in your life I would say is also natural and normal. .
So my thinking is that wholeness is another area of fractal growth. That we hit a certain level of wholeness and then we round the bend and something else comes up which makes us "need" our twin to fill the hole for a while. And then we heal that thing and we go round the spiral and up to the next level. The spiral is infinite. We just take it up a notch each time.
So what does that mean for union? My own conclusion about this... and take it if it resonates and feel free to ignore it if it doesn't... is that union will happen when we are ready for it. That's going to be different for everyone depending on their circumstances. And that feeling of readiness will also go round in a spiral of growth. But it will hit a sweet spot of healing, wholeness and readiness in both counterparts which is divinely orchestrated and then it will happen.
Yes, wholeness is really important and goes a long way to mitigate against neediness and the runner chaser dynamic but I think there is a danger that we think ourselves out of union by believing it is conditional on obtaining an unattainable state. So yes. Strive for wholeness, strive for healing and strive for readiness. But also be prepared to accept that its a life long process that will take you to amazing places of growth if you don't put limits on it.
Would love to hear your thoughts on this
