Settling Into Self

Imagine living without the voices in your head telling you what you should do, how you should act, what you should want, how you should look, who you should love. Apart from “should”, what might you find?

What do you really want? If you wrestle with being honest about it because you “shouldn’t” want what you really want, consider giving yourself the chance to explore what is under your seemingly unacceptable desires. Typically, when the things we want bring destruction, it is a misguided attempt to soothe a legitimate need/desire within us.

If you want fame, aren’t you just looking for acceptance? Validation? Love?

If you want to be rich, perhaps you are tired of struggling financially.

Maybe you are struggling financially because you use money to meet a need only healthy relationships can provide.

Finding the perfect relationship may seem like the answer to your emptiness until you realize there is no perfect relationship.

The desires we carry are many, complex and shaped by our journey. Exploring those desires honestly, openly in imperfect relationships, honed by the hand of God brings us to the core of our being. There we find the best of being human. There we find the Creator revealed through creation.
