I originally wrote this for my Instagram account, but I figured…why not share the wealth across platforms.
Earth placements, y’all alright?
Honorable mention: Pisces placements. ♓️
When it comes to going above and beyond…to the point of self sacrifice, you gotta cut off the shenanigans.
When you find yourself doing more, giving more, extending yourself more…that’s where learning healthy boundaries comes into play.
Bc don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with being a caring, kind, generous, loving, giving person, but just make sure that same grace is also extended to you, from those we intentionally share with.
I once read something that said: “Loving someone harder will not make them change.”
& that was some of the realest shit I ever read. We do sometimes break our own hearts, but we also have the ability to call back energies and break those agreements that allowed us to accept less than we deserve.
Shit, it’s all a part of growing, learning and unlearning. & when you know better you (hopefully) do better and make better decisions. & that’s on ancestor Angelou 🙏🏿✨ ~Syn
Love is... Recognizing and acknowledging what love isn’t. & the way we do that is by opening ourselves and our hearts once again. Kinda reminds me of that Dr. Maya Angelou quote:
Have enough courage to trust love one more time
Oh, & this gem:
Love is a condition so powerful; it may be that which pulls the stars in the firmament. It may be that which pushes and urges the blood in the veins. Courage: you have to have courage to love somebody because you risk everything – everything.
It’s all a risk because some people and their intentions can be complete and utter shit. But to achieve bliss, in this sense...it’s always worth it. Because the more you open yourself up to it, the more you grow/better you get (hopefully) ‘cause in love and growth begets clarity, discernment & healthier boundaries You found me (Only) After I found myself We attracted one another after we stopped telling and living outdated stories & left those books on the shelf.
So. Here we are. Here we go. So much to lose and heaven to gain. Scorpio season always reminds me of transmutation. & these darker seasons urging me to be patient while living in a matrix & the land of instant gratification.
Digression. So, back to the lesson & what I feel I’m being taught... how to not give up on love & I had to stop Assuming & expecting perfection from imperfect humans When most of us are just doing our best From where we at What we understand, perceive and know to be true Our current level of consciousness is proof Happily ever is an attainable endeavor Never, weather permitting Admitting that we belong to ourselves first and only & not to continue to commit to lofty, idealistic ideas and standards of love-because we’re lonely Love is not that Happily ever after...about that I learned that Nobody is promised to you forever So I vow to love you and be your partner as long as we both agree to As long as it’s healthy for the both of us Not because time or history The thing about love...it’s a beautiful mystery To be discovered unraveled and learned over and over til the end of time Til we get it “right” & feel like Our whole & complete selves are not compromised For the sake of union I want you And All of what makes you, you. & I promise to present the same to you Vulnerable Scars, healing, and truth An ever evolving human and work in progress, to be continued
