"Our remedies oft in ourselves do lie
Which we ascribe to Heaven."
I allow myself to feel let-down by other people sometimes. I think I can count on them more than I can, or that we are all on the same page when we are not. And I get my feelings hurt that way- by taking personally what is not personal. Everything is not always reciprocal in life and that's ok. I can be kind and loving and true to my calling whether nobody or everybody or a chosen few understand.
I do not look to others for a sense of self-worth. That comes from inside of me.
