When you walk away from someone that once mattered to you – how do you feel?

For me – firstly, I am overwhelmed with feelings of loss, followed by a disbelief that the separation occurred. I then justify to myself the decision I took in ending the toxic attachment, as I replay in my mind all that transpired leading to the outcome.

I usually get a sense of guilt of abandoning someone I cared about. Soon after, I will accept that our journeys are no longer on the same path. After I take enough time to heal, I move on. I will not forget, I forgive and choose to remember the good memories and focus on the lessons I needed to learn.

Do you find yourself, more often than you would like, feeling disappointed in your partner’s behaviour?

For me – I found myself in the same position in almost every relationship I had. So repetitive, that at some point I doubted myself. I wondered: “why can’t they just love me the way I want to be loved?” Continue reading

Do you find yourself living more in the past or the present?

For me – I find myself more and more becoming aware of my habit of looking back and remembering events that took place. I believe it has been a work in progress for me to live more in the present moment and only use the past as a learning experience.

I also learned it is okay when I recall the past and not be so hard on myself. I just keep reminding myself what happened, happened. I am here now. No regrets. No shoulda, coulda, woulda. Everything that happened was meant to happen. I allowed it to happen. And now it is time to let go of all the pain and live this moment, right here. Because yesterday is gone. Tomorrow is not yet here. All I have is NOW.

What do you find yourself doing? Are you living in the past still? Are you holding on to anger and resentment? Do you feel stuck? Are you ready to let it all go and live in the present moment? How do you want to live your life?

Are your emotions leading you?

For me – I am usually led by my emotions. When I didn’t know any better, I felt stupid for being so emotional and saw it as a flaw in my character. Others pointed out to me the same and I believed them.

Now, I embrace my emotion and sensitivity. Now I understand more about myself because I educated myself. I am an empath and there is nothing shameful about that. My emotions allow me to be the compassionate, kind, giving person I am. And I wouldn’t want to be any different.

As for making decisions, well, I found that a balance of emotions and mind works best. Everyone must find their comfortable point. Everyone has their own scale. Do what feels right for you – not what others think you should do. After all, it is your life. It is your emotions. Let it lead you to where it may. Embrace it and you will know how to work with it. I did.

How about you? What’s your stance on your emotions these days?

When can you see yourself saying: “I am satisfied. I have done it all.”

For me – I do not foresee myself ever saying these words. I am always striving to better myself, learn something new, making things happen, serving others, making a difference in this world. There will always be something I can do, even when I am older – at least that’s how I see it now.

What is love?

For me – love is something I can never do justice by describing. Love is a feeling inside me that exists whether I pay attention to it or not. Love is a state of being. Love is a way of life. Love is giving. Love is forgiving. Love for me, is how I interact in the world day by day, minute by minute. Love is my existence.

What do you think it means when you say: “I can sleep tonight with a clear conscious”?

For me – it means I have done everything I can to stand by my values and principles. My conscious is clear when I know whole heartedly, I did not set out to hurt another person. For me it is certainty in being the person I am in every way possible.

What does it mean for you?
