The Love We Deserve

There is a quote from the movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower that was very healing for me. Actually, it was an almost painful awakening that punched me in the gut when I heard it:

 “We accept the love we think we deserve.

 Ah, how true that is. We bring the people and events into our lives that we believe we deserve. And until we believe otherwise, until we explore deeper into self inquiry as to why we believe such things, we will continue to bring in those hurtful and harmful experiences. Why? Because first and foremost the love that we receive from ourselves is the most important.

 “We accept the love we think we deserve.”

 When you look at that quote from the perspective of how we love ourselves then the quote becomes even more powerful.

  You are worthy of love.
