    Yes. “getting there also requires a resolve to learn to love yourself under the most difficult of conceivable circumstances – a radically honest mind” — this is an ongoing challenge. In the past I’ve refrained from tackling difficult subjects and projects or, when it became too much, left it unfinished; I realize now that only through deep commitment to a process can I attain the freedom and experience that I long for, a freedom that is always there and not fleeting. It’s interesting that while I strive for perfectionism, I also tend toward self sabotage. Not trusting that I could get *there*, or should I get there, it would make a difference. Without radical self-love, this struggle makes sense. I look forward to digging into this more tomorrow 🙂
