Hmmm, the act of holding a sign and drawing attention to myself (even though I'd be doing it with a bunch of other people) does bother me a lot. Ah, it triggers one of my most limiting belief about love - about how I'm not supposed to show to people I'm not intimate with that I think they may care about me! Thanks - it's easier to know what I'm dealing with.
Though, the idea of constantly having people walking by and rejecting my offer bothers me too
. Hmmm, and then having no control either of who hugs me - having random strangers come up and hug me is unsettling too.
I see this free hugs thing is hitting a lot of my weakest points! All the more reasons to really go after it.
I think I need to redefine what a hug means. What is a hug anyhow? I guess I had a hug mean that you care about someone, but now I think I should redefine it more loosely to simply mean something else. Like two people enjoying the warmth and love that exists in the world?
