Lessons From the Past - June 2015, Las Vegas, Nevada

parts relationships self Jun 04, 2024

We took this photo in 2015 during a stint in Las Vegas. 

It was our second home back then.

What you see is a boy in a man’s body. A boy whose PARTS had blended with SELF in such a knot I didn’t know who I was, and I didn’t know that I didn’t know who I was. 

Imagine what that was like for Liza.

If I didn’t know who I was, who did she fall in love with?

A lie.

This is more common than you would think. 

People fall in love (or become infatuated) with PARTS or brief glimpses of SELF, and then they bail when they meet PARTS that trigger them.

Luckily, Liza didn’t bail. 

As I began untying the knot between SELF and PARTS, Liza and I went through meeting, disliking, liking, and accepting all PARTS of myself.

And the more my PARTS felt accepted by my SELF and Liza, the less time they spent at the wheel. 

In short, this photograph reminds me that wanting people to change is the wrong goal. Accepting ALL PARTS of someone is the way forward, especially those you want to run from. 

Much love and STRIVE on!


PS: If you’re desperate to run but a PART of you wants to stay, and you need some help, reach out. I’ve been there.
