I’ve just listened to a story I constantly hear:
My client desperately seeks acceptance from those who want nothing to do with her. This person has been tormented by this group for years. She can’t accept that this group has closed its doors to her, that they enjoy her discomfort and that they purposefully go about the business of making her miserable.
This group is the popular one, the one everyone wants to be part of. My client can’t see that the members of this group are mean and toxic. In fact, they are aggressively abusive to not only my client but to many others.
You see, my client can’t stand rejection or aloneness.
Even though she’s been advised to find new interests and to participate in new activities; even though it’s been explained to her that by so doing she will find new friends, she still returns to this same story, this same group. Her actions remind me of an addict’s: they know the substance is harmful, but return to it over and over.
Let us ask the angels to help us let go of toxicity, accept change and do what is best for us.
Ask the Angels
Angels of all of us,
Sometimes, we humans constantly beat our heads against the same door. We do this even when it’s obvious that our heads are getting hurt.
Help us to recognize that if the door is meant for us, it will open easily and quickly as soon as we knock.
Turn us from doors that are toxic, that bring us harm and that cause us unhappiness. Lead us to doors that welcome us, that cause us be in touch with those who accept us and that bring the true joy of knowing that we are the beloved of God.
Angels of all of us, this is Barbara. I speak the word for all of us who are open and receptive to it. I speak for all who desire the truth, for it is from the truth that health, prosperity, healthy relationships and success comes.
Angels of all of us,
Right here and now, we leave the cliques who torture us, who reject us, who behave aggressively toward us. We stand tall as our own person, a person blessed by many talents and gifts, a person who is the beloved of God.
We accept our role as creators, organizers and leaders. We recognize that we are valuable and have no need to beg anyone for acceptance.
We rejoice in who we are. We give thanks for your support and nurturance. We are grateful for who we are.
And so it is.
