We accept the love we think we deserve
Life may be rough for us and sometimes we may believe on a subconscious level, that we do not deserve to be loved. In believing this, we involve ourselves with people who validate that particular belief. We get into relationships where people may ignore us, mistreat us, or even abuse us. Yet we continue to stay in the unhealthy relationship because on some level, that is what we believe that we deserve. Unknowingly we actually keep ourselves from love, by looking for it in all the wrong places. Not until we love ourselves, and believe that we are worthy of love will we be able to create a healthy bond with others. It is our inside job to believe that we deserve love and that we are willing and capable of acknowledging and accepting it when it comes our way.
