“Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” – Psalm 37:4
I wholeheartedly believe I am worthy of receiving love. I love the way my heart loves, I love my soul, and I love all of me.
Yet sometimes I come undone when I don’t receive love, or when I don’t feel validated. I have an expectation for the way I should be loved by my fiancé, family, friends, or the world. When I don’t receive love the way I envisioned I don’t feel it is a valid expression of love.
I can be loved by many people, but not receiving love, acceptance, or validation from the one person I’m fixated on will outweigh the love I’m receiving from all other sources. The pain and emptiness from not being loved and accepted as I’d hoped, is too much to bear. I silently plead to be loved. My soul begs and gives someone else the power to make me feel whole.
