Prisoner in your own creation

Choose love!

I sit at the cafe on the corner of the block, sip a coffee and try to answer the question, “Why do I feel captive when all I offer is love? What can I do to change my condition?”

I used to think quite positively, induce a good mood on my own, and see beauty in everything. But now, for a while, it has been challenging for me to get up. I barely dared to write after almost two months. I always feel the need to run, to hide.

I know the reasons in my soul, but I don’t think I want to admit them consciously. But I should say them by name and not run away from them.
I give too much power to the people/things around me. When it comes to the people or things I care about, I don’t care about myself or my desires. I want to offer love, live in harmony, and be happy.

Why do I feel captive when all I offer is love? Why does the condition of others affect me so much? And at the same time, I am aware of the power of my thinking. But I’m a prisoner! I’m trapped in my own life.

I need to STOP!
I have two options. Either I begin to feed my soul and calm my mind gently, or I continue to hurt myself. And NO, not the people around me are the problem. The problem is that I allow them to control my direction/condition.

Neale Donald Walsch clearly describes three laws in his book:
1. Thought is creative.
2. Fear attracts forces like it.
3. Love is the only thing that matters.

Why do I write this article?

Because I know I’m not the only one struggling and trying to understand my soul. I want you to know that you matter! And I am convinced that the moment you realize your true power and do something about it, you will get results. I tend to think it’s all about self-love!
The moment you truly connect with your soul and learn to love yourself gently, you will break down all barriers and feel free. I’ve been there. I know it’s possible, but sometimes these days, when you fall, it helps you to rise more powerful and aware. Choose love!

I’m going to regain my inner strength. And if you have a story, I can’t wait to hear how you raise your power.
Wish me luck!
