“When you truly give up trying to be whole through others, you end up receiving what you always wanted from others.”- Shakti Gawain
What is it that you always wanted from others? Is it happiness, love, success, or a career advancement? I don’t know. You are in a better position to answer this question.
Do you know why nobody can satisfy you? Do you know why nobody can make you happy? Do you know why nobody can give you enough love?
Why? Because you cannot find what you already have from another person. You can only find it within yourself.
What I am saying is, “If you want to find what you are looking for, look within, not without.”
“When you truly give up trying to be whole through others, you end up receiving what you always wanted from others.”-
If you want love from other people, give yourself love. Nobody can give you enough love, but yourself.
If you REALLY want to be happy, make yourself happy. Don’t wait for people to make you happy. They can’t do it, because they don’t know you. They don’t know your values. They don’t know your goals.
Stop trying to please people. Stop! You can’t please everyone. You can only please yourself. The more you try to please people, the more you are neglecting yourself- your needs and wants.
You have what you always wanted. Others cannot give you anything. It is time to start appreciating yourself, and start living the life you were created to live. Because you have what you always wanted.
