Self-Love vs. Self-Abandonment
Welcome - we are glad you came for help!
Self-abandonment is the underlying cause of much pain and shame, while shame – which is perpetuated by self-abandonment – also fuels self-abandonment. So much will change in your life when you learn how to love yourself, and you break this painful cycle.
Ponder the difference between knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge is something we acquire through various forms of education - books, experts, the Internet. Wisdom is a deep inner knowing of how to apply the knowledge in ways that support our highest good and the highest good of all. Knowledge without wisdom is the realm of the wounded self. Wisdom is the realm of the loving Adult.
