One reason why your life has felt unbalanced in the past has been your reluctance to accept complete responsibility for your happiness. The thought of being totally accountable to yourself brought up fears and pressures that you wanted to avoid.
You now realize that self-responsibility isn't a test that you can pass or fail. It literally means being responsive to your own core - after all, no one else can know what will make you happy.
Being true to who you are is as joyful and fulfilling as helping other people. Your inner self sends the love and appreciation to you for providing such good care.
Thought for Today
I fully accept that I am responsible for my own happiness. I treat myself with respect and care.
