I see that what I seek from (some) others is love. And that I have a sense of not being filled up enough with love. So why not give it to myself?
I can visualize myself, or a suffering part of me, or my heart, and…..
I wish you love. I wish you ease. (Metta, loving kindness.)
Breathe in my suffering. Breathe out love and clarity to myself. (Tonglen.)
I love you. Please forgive me. I am sorry. (Ho’oponopono.)
I also see some beliefs…..
My own love for myself is not enough.
I need the love of a woman. The love of a woman is better than my own love for myself.
