Unveiling Your Inner Depths: The Key to Richer, Authentic Relationships

The depths of intimacy we experience with others are intrinsically linked to the depths we dare to reach within ourselves. To truly connect with someone, you must first be willing to confront and accept the spectrum of your own humanity. It’s a concept that transcends merely attracting someone. More crucially, it influences how you retain quality relationships and the level of awareness you bring into them.

Before anything else, the journey begins with you—deep self-exploration. Think of it as exploring a dark forest within you. You have to delve into not just the sunlit clearings of joy, desires, and potential but also wander into the shadowy corners where fear, shame, and regret lurk. I’ve personally navigated this labyrinth of emotions, qualities, and past actions, unearthing my own unpleasant, sometimes downright ugly facets. Trust me, it’s like staring into an abyss at times.

But here’s the catch: by willingly traversing these murky inner depths, by owning even the uncomfortable parts of my persona, I gained an extraordinary level of self-acceptance and peace. The judgmental voices in my head quieted down, replaced by a gentle understanding that the ‘ugly’ is as much a part of me as the ‘beautiful.’ This paved the way for relationships imbued with authenticity, understanding, and most importantly, depth. No longer did I find myself presenting a curated, superficial version of myself; instead, I showed up as a complex, multifaceted individual.

What I had to do was to embrace me in my entirety. Yes, even the inconvenient parts—the tendencies that I wasn’t proud of, the vulnerabilities I’d rather hide. There was no compartmentalizing or selective ignoring. Because it’s only when we accept all parts of ourselves that we can show up fully in relationships. It creates a space not just for you but also for the other person to be authentically themselves.

This concept reframes the conventional notions we have about relationships. The focus shifts from ‘What kind of person am I attracting?’ to ‘What quality of relationships am I capable of maintaining and cherishing?’ If you’re not meeting yourself entirely, if there are aspects of your being that you’ve neglected, then there’s an invisible ceiling to the intimacy you can experience with another.

So, I pose this question: What are you willing to embrace within yourself to experience a richer, fuller, more authentic life? Delving into your own depths isn’t just an act of courage; it’s an act of love. And the more you love yourself, the more love you can invite into your life. 

One is glad to be of service.

The Expansive Masculine

When my mother sent me some old pictures of when I was child, my heart opened and memories came flooding back to me. I saw an innocent little boy with a massive smile on his face.

Yet the happy times were outweighed massively by the sadness and fear I experienced. Overtime that little boy learned that closing down his heart was the best way to protect himself. Then he grew up to be a man that was shut down because of a his pain.

You Are Enough

I spent so much of my life in hiding. Hiding from my fears, my anger, my insecurities, my pain, my past. I spent my life hating on myself, filling my mind with the lies I was not enough and not worthy.

You know the dialogue… “Not smart enough, not strong enough, not popular enough, not wealthy enough, just not enough. I covered the not ‘enoughness’ with either retraction or aggression.d

Are You Afraid Of Being Alone?

How much time do you spend with yourself? We are so drowned out by the millions of voices, the busyness, the clutter, the bombardment of ‘do this’, ‘buy that’ and ‘be this’, that we have forgotten our true nature.

Home in Retrospect

It has been really difficult being back here “home”… What is home? It has changed for me so much. The last few years have been turbulent, revealing, painful, healing and empowering. Being back in this place has disorientated me in many ways.
Yes, it has been nurturing to my soul, my dear friends, blessed life long connections, family and loved ones, yet I feel displaced. Have you ever been somewhere that felt so familiar, yet you feel you didn’t belong anymore? I am here.

When Someone Tells You That You Can’t, What They’re Really Saying Is They Can’t

Don’t get caught up in the ignorance and insecurities of others. So often, we are stuck in our own pains and fears and we project this outwardly.

When those in your life display jealousy, ‘put downs’, relentless and thoughtless doubt, nay-saying, antagonistic behavior and looking for and identifying the worst in all that you are and do, it is linked intimately to their own sense of self.
