The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: July 29, 2011
Quote of the Day:
“Perfect love casts out fear. Where there is love there are no demands, no expectations, no dependency. I do not demand that you make me happy; my happiness does not lie in you. If you were to leave me, I will not feel sorry for myself; I enjoy your company immensely, but I do not cling.”
~Anthony de Mello
The Single Woman Says:
Whatever and whoever you are looking to for your happiness today…guess what? It isn’t there. You will never find YOUR happiness anywhere but in the mirror. Love that looks to another human being for completeness is not love – it’s dependency. If you are mourning someone’s departure today because you allowed your happiness to go out the door with them…TAKE IT BACK! If they left you, it’s not the end of the world – it’s the beginning of a new one. If you have wasted hours or days or weeks or years playing the VICTIM, today’s the day to recast yourself as the VICTOR. Choose this very moment to declare your independence from neediness, from clinginess, from dependency…and walk in the freedom that comes from loving yourself enough to look inside you and not beside you for your joy, confidence, and self worth.
