"We accept the love we think we deserve."
Love quotes, quotes about love - Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
I saw this quote today, and it sure rings true. In the earlier years of our marriage, I felt no self worth and wouldn't accept love from my wife. Felt like i didn't deserveit. I, also, have found this to be true with my relationship with Jesus. I didn't feel like I deserved to be loved by God and therefore suffered a lot. I'd be lying if I said these things never happen anymore, but they do. However, today I'm more cognitive about it.
