He/she feels like an inner snake....

For me, finding that inner love isn't always easy, and actually my inner snake - and he can be quite cunning in his approaches - often wins the day. BUT, I do firmly believe giving love, self love, yes, calming the inner critic, is slowly becoming my norm, meaning the inner snake isn't biting as often and his toxins aren't as powerful as they used to be.

Definitely, (((Thirty shades))).

Inner love is very important, Thirty shades. I agree that we need to give some love to our inner snake. You all deserve it, after all. Take care of yourselves. You're all wonderful people and you deserve to be treated with repsect - from others, but from yourselves, as well. Self-love and self- respect start from there. Sending many hugs to everyone
