Before you focus on how well someone else is treating you, ask, “How well am I treating myself?” Your answer has a direct impact on the person you attract. When I mention self-care, people think I’m talking about manicures or man caves. But that’s not taking care of the essence of who you are. Do you have a fitness practice? Are you eating well? Are you meditating? Are you meticulous about the people you allow in your life? If you are not caring for yourself in that sacred way, you are not going to find anybody else to do that for you. You also have to let to go of past hurt. Unpack the baggage you’re carrying from last relationships, of slights experienced or [perceived]. The next thing is working on your ability to receive support. As supermen and superwomen, we don’t know how to ask for, or accept, what we need most, which are expressions of love. Embrace a compliment. Say yes to assistance. Let the person who wants to support you do it. Last, learn how to communicate in a manner that your partner can receive.

To put it simply - you have disoriented me.
Falling in love with you was like being thrown into an ocean at night.
It kisses my skin and it engulfs me, and I’m so light it feels like I’m flying, but I’m left with nothing that I need.
I don’t know which way will give me the air I need and which way will send me down further into the abyss.
Everything is chaotic
Everything is soothing.
