The Twelve Illusions

And on the path of self-acceptance,

These twelve illusions you shall shed:

The illusion of being unwanted:

For, in truth, there is no such thing as an unwanted soul.

The illusion of being unlovable:

For your true self is love.

The illusion of unworthiness:

For you are always deserving of love and success.

The illusion of being weird:

For there is no such thing as normal.

The illusion of needing external validation:

For the approval of others does not define your worth.

The illusion of being insignificant:

For your presence impacts all of humanity.

The illusion of being powerless:

For within you lies the strength to shape your destiny and influence the world.

The illusion of not being good enough:

For you were born good enough.

The illusion of being a burden:

For your existence is a precious gift, and your contributions add value.

The illusion of being unsuccessful:

For success is subjective, and your path is uniquely yours.

The illusion of being ugly:

Because that label only ever reflects the viewer being incapable of seeing beauty.

And the illusion that aging decreases your value:

For, in truth, you are not a body but a soul.
