What is my message? Why does it get stuck in my craw coming out? Not literally, since I am writing it and not speaking it, but still. I will try some “trial” messages here. You can overcome the rejection wound and be who you really are, because you are wanted, loved and accepted. You can… Read more »

To find yourself, you have to love yourself first.

That’s right – to “find yourself” you have to love and accept yourself first. That seems backward, I know. You might feel like you need to prove yourself before you can be loved.

You are significant
