´*.¸.•´♥` “UNCONDITIONAL LOVE – Love without condition
I love you as you are, as you seek to find your own special way to relate to the world. I honour your choices to learn in the way you feel is right for you. I know it is important that you are the person you want to be and not someone that I or others think …you “should be.” I realize that I cannot know what is best for you, although perhaps sometimes I think I do. I have not been where you have been, viewing life from the angle you have. I do not know what you have chosen to learn, how you have chosen to learn it, with whom or in what time period. I have not walked life looking through your eyes, so how can I know what you need….”

I have been working on forgiveness today. I have a list of people that need forgiveness from me.
1. YOU who thought my grades “should have” been better, although I did my best. At times, your expectations made me lazy. There was no inspiration in your words for me to do better. I appreciate that you understood and accepted others with no expectation. I deserved the same.
2. YOU who called me fat in second grade. I was not fat, I was the tallest on in class. I appreciate that you see and accept other body types. I deserved the same.
3. YOU that got angry with me for getting first runner up in the County Spelling Bee, I know you thought I could have done better and that there is no reason why I could not spell JABOT… hello… it’s a french word, I was from WV… I had no idea what he was saying. I did my best. I appreciate that you gave a congratulations to the winner. I deserved the same.
4.YOU who convinced me to take that bottle of laxatives in the eleventh grade so you would be a bit smaller in your dress. I can’t really say that I appreciate ANYTHING about that. I deserved to be loved.
5. You who married someone without really understanding WHY. I know you just wanted to be loved, to feel needed and desired and well “loved” and nurtured. You deserved all those things.
I have more forgiveness to extend, but I will start with these people. You see, they are all the same person.
I forgive ME!!! I release all the negative programming. I accept only TRUTH and chose to accept and BE me.
