For some of us our kitchen cabinets are all neatly stocked and the shelves are completely full but, somehow we go into the store for one thing and come out with 20. Knowing, full well that our cabinets already have no room and suddenly it’s cluttered and overstocked. We find ourselves frustrated that we’ve managed to put ourselves through this once again.
Sometimes I like to think that our hearts are the same. When a cluttered and over stocked heart is full the hearts cabinet door needs to be de-cluttered and the shelf of self needs to find space. When we are stuck by the heart hinges conflict develops because we love the ones that we are going to have to let go in order to sacrifice for the love of self. Those that we choose to let go will get angry and won’t understand, and will have a negative viewpoint no matter how you try to put it. That was the reason you had to let them go in the first place right? Your heart was overstocked, and your self of shelf was losing support ready to lean. Naturally, everyone now thinks you’re the queen or king of mean.
There are so many of us who sacrifice oneself for the happiness of another when the focus of happiness should be on our own. We do so much for others when we often forget to do for ourselves not realizing that we can do both. But, For some of those that we love they can get selfish and rather have us DO, DO, DO for THEM, THEM, THEM, and that is sometimes, I think at least how we began to forget about ME, ME, ME AND I, I, I, AND LOVING OURSELVES.
Being afraid to de-clutter our hearts from those who hurt us that are supposed to support, love, and care about us and are family, friends, and those that claim they care. This doesn’t mean that you have to hate them it just means that you aren’t open to letting them hurt you anymore. It also means your door hinges are no longer stuck, your shelf of self is free and not leaning bringing smiles on your face and best of all your heart sits in your chest lighter than ever because you never felt so good and this they never understood…not until they de-clutter their own shelf of self…Only you can love YOU better than everybody else.
