“Love is a bridge, and not a wall, if we let ib be” (Sense8, season 2, episode 10).
This is a quote from a Netflix Series i highly recommend watching, that is Sense8. You can google it, and see what’s all about, watch it, and decide whether is for you or not, though it has powerfull messages. But i’m not writting this post to talk about it, rather, to talk about what this quote made me realise.
I know some things hurt -a lot- and healing can be challenging. Sometimes it seems impossible, and there are tons of excuses in our everyday life to keep us running away from ourselves, but at the end of the day the choice is an easy one: do we want to be happy, or not. Do we want to love and be loved, or not.
Problem comes when we want to be accepted for who we are, and be loved at our core, and yet:
a) we seem unable to be the first ones to truly love ourselves; and/or
b) when we finally feel/find love, we do not know how to receive and accept it.
Why is it so difficult to understand that we made mistakes before, but that doesn’t mean we have to keep making them. Maybe that’s why we refuse to accept ourselves, because forgiving ourselves for all the damage we allowed to happen in our own lives it’s too painfull, and we still don’t know how strong we are to overcome it, or how to make peace with it. Yet, holding on to taht ‘pain’ is what makes things hurt. Is the lack of (self) love, and not love itself what ‘hurts’.
I pray, we all choose and learn to let Love in.
