“Once you’ve become aware and start to realize how insanely conditioned a lot of people are, their opinions wouldn’t matter anymore. But it doesn’t mean that you stop loving them. In fact your love may now be coupled with deep compassion, for you’re beginning to profoundly understand the true meaning of the words “forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
As it is with ourselves. Our mind is not only a chemical factory of feeling good substances with feeling really depressed, but we are also a mirror of what we saw in our parents when we were growing. Did we se love or criticism? Did we see forgiveness or lingering pain?
That’s why, we shouldn’t judge so much, and instead accept things as they are. Believe that you’re safe in yourself. Believe that you can take care of yourself, even if you feel as an outsider (from your family; society; friends). There’s in this world lots of people capable of loving you and you loving them. And that’s the best feeling of all!
