It can be defined as to cease to support or engage.
I am sure you can think of at least one example from your own life of where you were abandoned, or you abandoned someone or something.
It is a familiar concept and evokes a variety of deep emotions.
Self-abandonment is perhaps the worst type of abandonment. It is where you have chosen to abandon yourself, your own needs. You have put yourself aside to honour someone else. Letting yourself down. This is usually accompanied by harsh judgement.
A double whammy! Abandonment and then judgement for letting yourself down.
The judgement, lack of forgiveness and lack of self-compassion is what creates the block. It stops you from being able to move on. It keeps you stuck.
Often this is done subconsciously and requires a mirror or incident to help you realise that you are holding a grudge against yourself.
When you allow yourself to acknowledge the abandonment and judgement; feel the emotions there of and finally forgive yourself. That is when you automatically free yourself.
You remove the block that was holding you back.
Are you brave enough to forgive yourself for your own abandonment? Treat yourself with love and compassion as you would a loved one.
You deserve the utmost love and compassion, from yourself before you can expect it from others.
You are loved beyond measure. Are you willing to love yourself back?
