“Bean by bean is the way to fill a bag”, a Greek motto says…
We can’t do it all at once. Especially when we talk of changes in ourselves… It takes a lot of courace along with patience to get rid of old habits and “download” the new ones.😓 Our psyche cannot be overburdened with new data and -this is the most important- assimilate it….
It needs time… It takes time… little by little.… 😉
Besides, “Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet“, as Jean Jacque Rousseau said….

Oh, what a human trait it is to be!
Lots of times we tend to offer everything to anybody else – sometimes we even tend to drain ourselves in order to be the givers. We tend to believe the other deserves everything we could (and, sometimes, subconsciously press ourselves) to offer him/her, while we leave nothing to give us! 😯 Not to mention the situation of a lover! In that case we often tend to sell out even our underwear, just because we have found THE one!!!!
Hello!😂 Just let’s shake our heads everybody!
Where have we left THE ONE AND ONLY to deserve our affection and “whole lotta love” (to remember the famous song by Led Zeppelin. …!)? Eh, where?😕
Hmm. … scratch. ..scratch. … Oh, yeah! 😄
Here we are! It’s our ONLY AND ONE self that we have left/neglected/forgotten aside/behind!!!
Let’s start giving to OURSELVES our love and affection first, then, so as to have the reserve to offer them to others! 💖💖💖
