What does one need courage for? Why is courage so important? How can we be even more courageous? I am going to answer all these questions in today’s post. As simple as it seems, very few of us are courageous enough to love ourselves unconditionally. Its very easy to go the usual way and do the usual things under the fear of society. But it takes a lot of courage to stand up for your own self. It isnt about fighting any outer battle. There is a battle going on within you where you are struggling to choose your happiness over other’s opinions.
The world has called me selfish, stupid, shameless, jobless, immature, depressed and careless. Well, to each his own. If putting on with something, be it a job or a relationship which is suffocating you and making you feel miserable each moment is what they call being sensible, then I am more than happy to be called weird.
If only we have the courage to love ourselves enough, we shall never be trapped in toxic situations. Even when we are completely clueless and helpless, we can harbour the courage just to take the very next basic step towards loving ourselves.
“I love myself more than anyone else.” I am not at all ashamed to say that. I cannot give any happiness or love to anyone until I give it to my very own self. This isnt a myth, its the ultimate truth.
“Ignorance approved by authority does not become truth. Truth is the ultimate authority.” Sadhguru
Self-love is your ultimate truth. Everything begins with a choice between love and fear. Having the courage to love yourself invokes your inner divinity. Spreading love and kindness begins with being kind towards yourself. You cannot be compassionate towards others until you practice self-compassion. You will never understand the magic of forgiveness until you choose to forgive yourself. You cannot evolve into someone better until you embrace all your shadows and it all begins with self-love.
Courage is the power to love yourself even when everything is falling apart. If you are courageous enough to do so, you will never put up with any loveless or distressing situations. Trust in your own inner light. It will illuminate your dark world of sorrow and suffering. You will feel the loving embrace of the divine. And thats when everything starts falling into place.
