It's Sunita here.
Accepting our yearnings without judging ourselves is a tough enough journey, but owning up to the most fundamental one we have is a monumental task.
It can be even more terrifying if one has suffered from attachment trauma and ACE's.
However, denial of our need to be loved leads us to places that are dark and damaging. And lonely. I know that first hand.
I share a reading of this poem with you today.
"Yearning" from Stripping- My Fight to Find MeWishing you an abundance of love,

PS-I hope you all have been coping well and have found ways to rise above the challenges of this time. I have been writing infrequently due to the additional demands of practicing at my dental and sleep practice during a pandemic. But thanks to the collective efforts of my dedicated team, I am now able to rejoin you.
I have missed my visits with you but am glad that I stayed true to my message of Self Love Self Care First. I had to adjust and modify my routines to be able to take care of my responsibilities at work. This flexibility is a way to honor ourselves. It helps us avoid overdoing it and causing physical and mental exhaustion. That not only harms us, but all those around us. I hope you are practicing SLSCF with such flexibility. S
