Love yourself completely

Return to the root of your own soul

~ Rumi

Why is this an important poem for type Twos to use for reflection? Twos – at least, most Twos – are adept at showing love for others and do so continually. However, self-love is harder to do because the Twos’ focus is on the external and how others respond to them, not on their intrinsic self-valuing, which is an internal exploration. Experiencing the root of one’s own soul requires a deep inner journey and the ability to self-love and self-care without attention to the responses of others. Go there!

As a social 2, this has been a huge challenge for me. Ginger hit it with the statement, “…focus on the external and how others respond to them.” I have been thinking about why I don’t take care of myself more, thinking it was about discipline or the lack of discipline. But, I am not so sure.
