You are not your emotions. But they are your teachers and as you love yourself through each thought or feeling that arises in the day, the most relentless visitors in your house of love will finally stop showing up - because you invited them, sat them down and said you're here and I'm a mess but I love myself anyway. The closer you get to love, the shackles will fall off, the blocks will slowly dissolve, light will pour in like liquid gold. True story.
