Keep your love on. 

If you never truly invest, it is because you subconsciously fear abandonment. Fear and love have opposite agendas, and cannot coexist. 

This fear of abandonment is an insecurity that you are not enough. It is in you to cast out your insecurities, no one except you is going to make you fearless. 
  
Love takes courage; courage to be vulnerable, courage to open up, courage that even though it may hurt you gave it your all. Again and again. 

“Always recognize that human individuals are ends, and do not use them as means to your end.”

Sometimes love leaves, and it is not anyone’s fault. Real love is freeing, and that level of freedom can be scary.  

Do not let pain change you into something you’re not; do not let it close you up. 

“Each display of love no matter how seemingly small, is a powerful act of spiritual warfare that removes anxiety from the environment and replaces it with freedom and safety.”

Anxiety shows up in relationships, and that fear tempts you to run away. It takes courage to choose connection in the midst of fear. 

  
In the end, in this world you have control of only one thing; yourself. That’s it. Accepting that makes you incredibly powerful. 

You will come across those who do not share the same goal as connection as you, in that moment of angst, “think highly of them rather than protecting yourself from what may feel like rejection.”

More importantly, if no one told you today, you are enough. You are more than enough. You are loved. You are worthy of love. 

XoXo,

About ashleekarin

Every Sunday I tried to post updates since I succeed in camping the doorstep of the world during a 110 day road trip around the USA; The Roadside Bears blog was then brought head first into the internet world (changed to ashleekarin.wordpress.com). Included are the details of our adventures and how we are doing, as well as tips on how we made a road trip around the USA happen. It’s important to pursue your dreams to the end, even if you end up with nothing. After all, you only have one life to live; go big or go home. Join me vicariously through this blog – AshleeKarin.wordpress.com – and experience the adventure of my life. Viewer discretion is advised, as you will most likely witness a very hungry person freezing as they sleep in their car. I will always be planning the next great adventure – so don’t miss out, subscribe to the blog today! XoxO (big kiss little hug little kiss big hug ), Ashlee Karin
