Hello Friends of BE! Welcome to the new monthly series “Love Thyself”. This series will discuss everything from bringing baggage into current relationships, whether personal or professional, to neglecting your heart to appease others. I am excited to share this message with you BEcause I, too have suffered from the crippling and complicated habit of harboring baggage. Baggage not only prevents growth, it hinders you from experiencing the authenticity of friendship and love. Inviting someone into your life means accepting you for your faults and flaws; however, there are limits. It is unfair to impede your past sufferings on someone who truly cares about you. RememBEr, love isn’t supposed to hurt and baggage belongs curb side.
