Put downs. You know this term well. Does it apply to how you treat yourself? There is not only a mental aspect to words that cause you to feel “less than.” There is an emotional and eventually a physical aspect as well. And do you know there is a part of you that is beyond physical, emotional, and mental that cannot be put down? It is unaffected by put downs, for it is already whole. Yes, you know this part when you step back from the barbs, whether they are self-inflicted or slung from hurting humans who know not what they do. Forgive them as you forgive yourself and be resurrected in awareness of your Whole-i-ness.

You are so very loved.
