Dependency

Dependency on others for our sense of worth, joy and fulfilment leads to resentment and a feeling of burden in them, and in us a feeling of disappointment when they are not satisfied by them.

Our fulfilment and joy are within. If we look inward instead of outward, we’ll find all that we need. We do not need others to be at peace, to have joy and to be fulfiled. That does not mean we do not want to spend time with others, it is simply removing the dependency element. True belonging is not about fitting in and relying on others, it is about being authentically ourselves and true.

Love being with others but do not depend on them, we’ll be happier and so will they.

Friday and Monday

If you’ve been longing all week for today and then on Sunday you are dreading Monday, then it’s time to consider a change.

When you are at peace, doing something that brings you joy, then every moment of each day is the same, you want to be in that moment and not looking for the highs and dreading the lows.

Life is this moment and so is change. You won’t want to be elsewhere when you’re doing something that counts to you. If you want always to be elsewhere, when you get there, you’ll still have the same problems.
