Letting Yourself be Loved

No one has ever prepared us for this experience.
We think it’s the end – no.

It’s another beginning.

It’s knowing that you’re loved, knowing that you’re loved.
It’s not easy, letting yourself be loved –

Because we’ve learned to judge ourselves –

We’re always judging ourselves.

 But I learned to listen that I was loved. I was loved!
And then I would forget that I was loved.

Those were the most painful times for me –
Forgetting that I was loved.

 So you’ve let yourself be loved while you’ve been here.
And you judged yourself.

And you’ve forgotten that you were loved.
And you became alone…but you will always be here.

 You are blessed. You are forgiven. You are an angel.

You have to listen that you’re loved and you have to
forgive all the time.

Listen that you’re loved and forgive, all the time.

You are love.

 Farewell my son.

Farewell my daughter.

Farewell my father.

Farewell my mother.

Farewell my sister.

Farewell my brother.Thank you for letting me love you.

Thank you for letting yourself be loved.

God bless you.
