Our actions do not benefit anyone when our behavior comes from fear, guilt, and obligation. Others feel the lack of love in our energy, even if the action itself looks loving. Our honest and authentic actions – actions that are loving to ourselves – are also loving to others. Living our truth gives others an opportunity to take care of themselves. If June goes back to school, her family will need to learn to rely more on themselves instead of turning to her for everything. If Raymond takes time for himself, maybe his children will learn to take more responsibility around the house. By taking care of ourselves, we give others the chance to step up to the plate. Maybe they will and maybe they won’t, but our loving behavior toward ourselves always gives others an opportunity to grow in their own personal responsibility and loving-ness as well.
