Yesterday I was confronted by a friend who had an emotional release on how I was making her feel. She was emotionally charged and went full into all the things she felt I was not doing in the friendship. She felt I was failing to partake in her ideals and therefore I was to blame about how she was feeling.
Along time ago when something like this would happen to me, I would immediately try to justify myself and would feel the need to defend who I was and my beliefs. However this time I was able to hear her and allow her the space to release her emotions. I did not feel the need to fix, solve nor defend. You see when you get to a place of knowing yourself in full acceptance and non judgement the urge or desire to prove yourself to others diminishes. The best I can do in order to love others is keep working on myself and expanding my heart so I can fill even the challenging moments with love.
