Struggling to set boundaries or say no? Allow your middle finger to guide you. Self-Love and the Middle Finger: A Profound Connection When it comes to self-love, the quote “self-love is the greatest middle finger of all time” resonates deeply. What many don’t realise is that the distinctive traits of the middle finger are intertwined with this theme. Palmistry and Your Middle Finger: Harnessing Energy and Expression In palmistry, fingers are viewed as antennae. They allow you to absorb and release energy, aiding you in expressing your needs and achieving your goals. Each finger does this uniquely due to its inherent characteristics. The middle finger assists you in delineating your boundaries. Its significance traces back to the Roman god Saturnus, representing time, wealth, and agriculture. Saturnus understood that life is defined by a finite amount of time, making it precious. From the moment you are born, there’s an inevitable endpoint. Sadly, no one has eternal life. You are the sole custodian of the life you wish to lead, emphasising your middle finger’s role in gauging your ability to take responsibility. A Figurative Middle Finger: A Powerful Tool for Self-Expression Raising a middle finger is often perceived as vulgar and crude. However, understanding its symbolism transforms the gesture. You don’t have to take it literally; metaphorically, it can assist you in asserting your boundaries and expressing your needs. Feeling skeptical? Seek inspiration in the insights from Bronnie Ware’s book “The Top Five Regrets of the Dying.” The top five regrets are: “I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.” “I wish I had expressed my true feelings.” “I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.” “I wish I had allowed myself to be happier.” “I wish I had had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.” Prevent these regrets by advocating for what truly matters to you. Your middle finger serves as a gentle reminder. Metaphorically raise it more often; saying no to others is saying yes to yourself.
