A Message from the Universe – Seal
The seal represents love, longing, and loneliness. She warns us against trying to capture what we long for instead of allowing it to come to us in it’s own time. She also reminds us that self-love is the cornerstone of all love. I know it sounds cliché but think about it.
When we don’t love ourselves we become needy and clingy, expecting others to fill a void that can only be filled by working on ourselves. When we approach another in this state, they are far more likely to be put off or worse, take advantage of our vulnerability.
Of course love could still happen when when we don’t think much of ourselves but our insecurity will keep us from really enjoying what we have and will place unrealistic expectations on our partner. Their love cannot fix you, only you can do that.
I know this is not what you want to hear but I think it is what you need to hear. Rediscover yourself through your own eyes rather than through the lense of everybody else. Do things you love and discover new things to enjoy. This will bring you to places where you will meet others of similar interest. Be kind to yourself! All those awful things you say to and think about yourself, would you put up with someone saying those things to someone you love? Whenever you can, stop that nasty thought about yourself and replace it with something nice. It will become a habit that actually helps you to build that love for yourself.
