My First Official Workshop: Leading You to Love of Self

This week’s appearance was at a Domestic Violence shelter in Brooklyn, funded by URI, an organization that provides shelter to women, children, & their pets in secret locations across NYC. Pictures weren’t allowed.

But necessary and completely fulfilling of what I am now very clear is God’s purpose for me. ‪#‎Empowerment‬ ‪#‎TheManCurse‬ ‪#‎Amen

But what happens when this false “truth” comes from those we love? On one hand, we might know that to get love we have to believe that we can have it and deserve it.  We might confidently say publicly, “I deserve good love and one day I will meet my soulmate.” But in quiet moments alone, other thoughts pop into the head. They might be the opinions of well-meaning family members, sending tough love in the form of words that attack the self-esteem with phrases like, “See, the problem with you is…” Or maybe it’s well-meaning friends, sending advice in the form of soft blows to the ego. Perhaps it’s the unhealthy examples we grew up watching in our households, replaying in our personal lives like robots programmed to mimic moves.
