Extended love

“We are not held back by the love we didn’t receive in the past, but by the love we’re not extending in the present.”
—Marianne Williamson

Held back.

It’s very tempting to use old grievances as an excuse to stay stuck. To lick old wounds. To take time to heal. To complain that you were never loved enough, or the way you wanted, so you must hold back now.
