Water represents our emotions while the cup or chalice symbolizes our love bank.
In life, we will experience a cycle of highs and lows, with our sense of self-love going up or down. It is normal. We learn the most important lessons during the hardest times. Sometimes we cannot really help how we are going to feel in a day because external factors vary.
What we gotta remember is that, no matter what emotion we are feeling, it is okay to acknowledge it and ask ourselves what is it that is triggering us. Why am I feeling sad right now? Why am I getting angry of what s/he said? What wounds were triggered because of this event?
It is OK not to be ok, to be angry or sad, we cannot be "positive" all the time. We are only human.
With emotional awareness and mindfulness, we will not be a slave to our emotions and it will not consume us. Instead, we can use them as catalyst to turn things around for the better, to get to know ourselves well, to speak up against bullying, and even to achieve justice that we seek.
When we allow ourselves to feel our emotions, it is easier to fill our cup with goodness, empty it out when we get contaminated with bitterness, and refill it again with love and happiness. And the cycle goes on and on.
SELF-LOVE IS KEY TO LIFE.
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
Love makes the world go round, but self-love is where it starts!
It is important in all aspects of life yet it is especially important to your relationship. The first stop on the road to romance is you. It is honoring and loving oneself that opens the door for another to truly do the same.
