Self Love vs Self Pity…

Unnecessary criticism
verbal cruelty, sarcasm
and malicious gossip 
demeans the speaker
making them less,
darkening their aura
and encourages a habit to form
but even their unspoken words
travel through the
‘song of the universe’
to find a recipient

Do you choose to accept
these feelings of wickedness
that cloud your aura
reinforcing other nasty comments
you may of heard from a neighbour
a friend or dear one?
Do you allow these untruths
to overwrite the magnificence
of who you truly are
and begin to believe
you are terrible
and life is against you?

Do you allow the words and thoughts
to hit your heart like an arrow
sending you into a panic attack
and a journey of self-pity?
Or do you choose not to accept
these feelings of wickedness
stand confident and worthy
knowing of your magnificence
and like a boomerang
the words and thoughts
are immediately
‘returned to sender’

Sometimes though
you can turn on yourself
with a destructive attitude
and words of doom
filling yourself
with toxic waste
and having no resistance
you can find yourself
within no time at all
wallowing in self-pity

Only when you take quiet time
to relax and breathe
to feel your feelings
explore, connect and listen
to your inner guidance
can you begin to understand
how responsible you are
for all your thoughts, words and deeds
that determine your journey
of Self Love or Self Pity

So remember
the sorrier you feel for yourself
the worse your life becomes
AND in each moment
you have a choice
to change and choose
Self Love over Self Pity
and live an enchanting life
shining your light brightly
as Your Magnificent Self

Magnificent, Barbara! Yes we do have choices every single day, every single moment! There are some mighty dark forces in this world of ours, and if we are not aware of the signs to understand when those dark forces hit, they will destroy us. I had an ugly encounter recently that took me almost 2 weeks to fully comprehend, and when I did, I put on my Warrior Suit and immediately not only sent that energy back but fully covered me and all who I love with Light. And self pity? That too will drain us of our life energy. Embrace light, goodness, happiness and lately I’ve been singing. What a beautiful world we do live in when we create from a heart overflowing with LOVE.

It happened again Barbara, I dropped off the face of the earth and not receiving your posts again. Ever since I moved to the new blog site I’ve lost millions of followers and those millions that I followed. And even after I find them and follow again, they keep disappearing. I wonder if my underarm deodorant is a little bit strong maybe 😀
I have re-followed and prayed profusely, may my new deodorant be acceptable 😀

Ever since I moved site my followers and the ones I follow are very difficult to follow! It’s a major fault within WordPress, the only thing I have found I can do is go around on my own visiting my friends when the feeling comes up to connect! I don’t wear deodorant… so not sure if that makes our situation worse or not!! Much love Barbara x

An excellent reminder that feeling sorry for ourselves isn’t the way forward!
