Baggage Fees

 Our perception of love is often clouded or obscured entirely by our emotional baggage. In my latest book, I will take you through a journey to clarify what love is actually intended to look like. Along that vein, here is a brief excerpt…
Our baggage is exactly that, ours.  Often it’s so well hidden that our spouses or significant others may not even know it exists—we  may have thought it dead and dormant ourselves.  But unfortunately it does exist, and as much as we’d like it not to, our baggage shapes and molds our thoughts, frames of mind, and perceptions. It’s often an unseen cancer that warps our interactions because of the difficult lessons we’ve learned while attempting to package it up and stow it away.  However, we need to be aware enough of our baggage’s influence to be able to stop it’s impact on our current relationships–or at least admit it’s influence to those enmeshed in its current net…these aren’t the people who’ve hurt us. These aren’t the ones that need to be handled with kid gloves, kept at a distance while protecting ourselves from possible repercussions.  Hard as it may be, we need to be reasonable in dealing with our thoughts and feelings with the person that’s in front of us right now, not the ones in our past.
