Consider: “People love at the level of consciousness they are at.”
Think about times in your life when you did not get the love that you wanted and needed. Are you able to accept that the people around you were actually doing the best they could? Think about someone you hold resentment against. What was their life like and did they have any problems? Are you able to accept that the people in your life may have been at a low level of consciousness and therefore unable to meet your needs? There may have been mental health, trauma or addiction that prevented a person from loving you at the level you needed. There may be generations of not getting love.
Resentments—————————————–Forgiveness (Discuss ways to facilitate)
*Some people take longer to grow and they were not who you needed when you were young. Sometimes the universe gives you what you wanted, but you won’t accept it because it is “too late.”
*People often get stuck in their resentments and want the other person to feel the lack of love they felt or to suffer. Remember the quote, “Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”
*When we are adults we have the ability to help ourselves but often unconsciously cause more trauma. We escape our painful childhoods only to re-create dramas with significant others, work, addiction etcetera that further our suffering.
