Choose Love Over Fear
When you enter into a relationship with fear and insecurity, you are doing both of you a disservice. You can be on either side of the road, fear or faith, but not both. If you are stuck in fear you must ask yourself why your shadows are overpowering you. If you are in a relationship that does not serve you or your higher self, it might be time to say, ”I love you, but I love myself more,” and I need to go be with me. It takes guts, but we know you have them. When you take the steps to putting yourself first, you will in turn attract the relationship of your dreams.
In every situation we have an opportunity to choose love over fear. In your relationship ask yourself if you are reacting from a place of love or fear. If you feel overwhelmed, angry, stressed or lonely these are often signs that your ego fear-based mind is trying to manipulate the situation. When we let go of expectations and let our partners off the hook, we can choose love in every instant.
