“Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty and your purpose when you are confused.” ~ Alan Cohen
There are many times when we are grieving that we feel unlovable. We’re emotionally all over the place, irritable, cranky, belligerent. A complete mess and out of sorts.
It is at times like these that company just won’t due. We want to run and hide so no one can see us.
These are the moments we must remember those that love us the most. The ones that love us no matter what are not fooled by the way we act. The people that love us the most remember the best in us.
The people who love us the most can help us find our way back to our best selves.
It is the people that love us the most will let us grieve however we need to grieve.
The people that love us the most will allow us to be our ugly selves for the moment and not hold it against us or take it personally.
The people that love us the most no matter what are family, not just blood family, but family nonetheless. The people that love us no matter what love us unconditionally and always have our best interests at heart.
The people that love us the most, won’t walk away because we are acting less than what they are used to.
The people that love us no matter what know how strong we really are and want to be the strength that we just don’t have right now.
The people that love us the most will stand shoulder to shoulder and hold us up when we can’t seem to and help us to keep going.
The people that love us no matter what will watch us have the ugly cry, hold us as we cry and then wipe away the tears and say, “it will be okay”; “I got you”;
The people that love us the most are right there;
The people that love us no matter what are the very same people that we are to them when they are not at their best;
The people that love us the most don’t judge;
The people that love us the most when we are out of sorts, wrong, ugly, indifferent, selfish, shallow, mean or unkind will turn and say, “this is not who you really are, we’ll get through this and everything will work itself out”.
The people who love us no matter what can see us in pain and want to make it better;
The people who love us the most, no matter what, are the very same people who we don’t want to see us like this;
The people who love us the most are constants in our life;
Truth be told, we are just like the ones who love us no matter what; we are those same people who love them no matter what; it is when we are off kilter, we have an extremely hard time letting them be there for us when we need them the most.
The people who love us the most are truly there; they are reaching out; no judgement; wanting to help in any way that they can; loving us always;
The people who love us the most, no matter what, are the ones we need to reach out to and allow them to help.
We will never be disappointed when we allow someone who loves us no matter what to help.
Isn’t it time to reach out to those that love you the most and allow them to help you to feel better?
And don’t forget, as good as it feels when you are there for those you love no matter what, is it fair to deny those that love you the most, the same wonderful feelings to be there for you?
Grief does not have to be a life sentence and when we can embrace and receive the love from those who love us the most, we find our strength again.
You are worth every effort to feel better.
