If you are dealing with fears and insecurities from old head programs, have compassion for yourself. Just love your insecurities, fears and resentments. Release and forgive them as they come up.

Recognize that your real security is built from your relationship with your own heart. -Sara Paddison, The Hidden Power of the Heart
