"Isn't it strange how we allowed a few capitalistic entrepreneurs to slip in between us, into a once sacred space that used to be reserved for crushes, courtships, and romance? How did we become so docile and compliant as to allow others to monetize what used to be serendipitous, beautiful, electric, and natural? I don't get it, but here I am, like everyone else, breathing through my mouth and scurrying toward the open chute, allowing myself to be corralled, fleeced of $39.99 each month, and told how to go about finding someone to share my life with..." 💖
How many times do we have to hear, "You're not trying hard enough," "You're going about it the wrong way," or "You need to step outside your comfort zone?" At first, I bristled at such tiresome platitudes, yet there I was, rolling up my sleeves, putting myself out there, and believing that life gives you exactly what you put into it.
But does it? Has life really given you exactly what you deserve? When so many of us can't find romantic love, meaningful work, a true friend, a permanent home, or enough money to live on, I can't help but think that something other than our own poor choices and self-defeating behaviors is working behind the scenes to keep us from acquiring happiness, success, and fulfillment. To me, it just doesn't add up.
Be Still My Heart: A Code for Love will not only reveal what's hidden behind the curtain, but you'll come to understand that your lot in life isn't all your fault. 💖💖💖
