The hardest parts of ourselves to witness are the areas that are blocking love. They are the parts that sit behind a wall of rationalizations as to why one is justified in withholding love under certain circumstances. But if you dig into that you see that behind those rationalizations is a victim and all the “buts” and then you are sitting with the glaring realization that you became the energy you were repelling and instead of recognizing the cause of someones suffering and having compassion for it, you pushed back and mirrored their suffering. This IS a wake up call. And we must use this humbling awareness to not repeat the same mistake.
