seeing them realize their potential and growth,
I can see a most important theme
in their successes towards happiness.
Those who feel a deep sense of love and belonging,
and those who struggle for it is the variable that divides these groups.
Those who learn to feel lovable,
and who experience belonging
they are worth of love and belonging.
They do not have better or easier lives,
they don't have fewer struggles with addiction or depression,
and they have not survived fewer traumas
or bankruptcies or divorces,
but in the midst of all of these struggles,
they have developed practices
that enable them to hold on to the belief
they are worthy of
love, belonging and even joy.
A strong belief in worthiness doesn't just happen ---
it is cultivated
when we understand the guideposts
as choices and daily practices.
To identify vulnerability
as the catalyst for
courage, compassion and connection.
