For the longest time I thought I was incomplete.
It felt like there were so many missing pieces.
I searched outside of myself for the answers.
I recruited men to help me feel complete.
I was married for nine years, and one day he said it was over.
In my devastation, I found IFS* and parts work.
I read the book You Are the One You’ve been Waiting For.
I worked really hard, attending Twelve Step Meetings, therapy,
EFT tapping, prayer and meditation, reading, writing.
Two and a half years later, still celibate,
I can finally feel the truth:
I am the one I’ve been waiting for.
I really can take care of myself emotionally!
Every day I am practicing self-love, self-acceptance, self-compassion.
If we could all recognize that we are the ones we’ve been waiting for,
life would be so much more…peaceful, fun, light, free…
May we all discover the gifts within us.
May we all come to cherish the beautiful beings that we are.
May we come to discover that we are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
