“Where love rules there is no will to power; and where power predominates there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.” Carl Jung’s words are easy to understand in external relationships but what if we applied this to our self-care? I like to have power over my thoughts, my emotions, my body and its appetites. But, the pretense of thoughtful discipline is really just a vain attempt to overshadow fear of loving simply who I am and what I need. Love should be the easiest thing in the world.
