The healing work begins by taking care of fear and guilt, two very important feelings for growth, when you learn what they want to teach. The beauty of life is in being different and having something new to teach and learn from other people. For this, you need to develop the ability to put yourself in other's shoes and live well with the differences, without wanting, arrogantly, that people are the way you think they should be.
Even if you do not agree with the singularity of the other, it is your duty to proceed with unalterable respect for differences, at any time and place, consolidating an example of fraternal coexistence. Accepting the positive side of emotions, even unpleasant ones, is a therapeutic way of living because it leads you to make use of two essential treatments for your healing: the adequacy of your feelings and thoughts to reality and the development of self-acceptance.
This inner climate produces acceptance of the personal problems you deny in yourself, allowing you to turn guilt, anger, fear, and other feelings into forces for your psychic and emotional release. Have you ever heard someone say to someone else, "my life is you. As long as the main axis of your life is another person, your emotional safety will always be threatened, as the fear of loss will prowl your every minute.

Do your best and make a commitment to never give up fighting and seeking your happiness. Listening to feelings does not mean adopting them promptly, but accepting them in your intimacy and creating a friendly relationship with all of them without repressing or embarrassing yourself.
This attitude is the first step towards an educational dialogue with your inner world. Only then you will have connection with your real psychological identity, allowing the self-discovery in the direction of your uniqueness. Change is a decision that only you can make. And it should be a change accomplished with deep respect, knowledge of your abilities, and love yourself. Avoid the rules that force you to follow paths that hurt you and to hold labels that have nothing to do with your inner nature.

Start looking more for what you want, get ready to give up your list of charges for everything you have done for the one you love, invest in a therapeutic process that helps you understand your emotions, make a commitment with your light side that is waiting for care, have the courage to look at the true dark feelings you have and, above all, believe that any time and in any age, life begins even when you courageously decide to love and give yourself the title of most important person of your life.
Often, your way of loving is closer to an individualistic view than to an authentic experience of this feeling. For a correct perception, begin to observe your performance in life. Family, work, religious and social activities come to be seen with a new look. You are no longer inserted in them as the simple consequence of the act of living.
You act objectively as a transformation agent of yourself and of the world. It is time to start seeing yourself in a more conscious and safe way, providing a lucid and constructive performance.
