And this is for days, You search for ways, To love yourself deep; And thus, end up breaking the promise you meant to keep!
For days when on the bed you lie, And all you do is cry; For the days when yourself you'll blame, And in the pillows, bury your head in shame;
For the days when inevitable will seem pain, And go back to the past, in your memory lane;
For the days, that people won't love you back, And the times you feel happiness is something that you lack; For the difficult days that seem endless, And the times looking at yourself, you feel you're a mess;
Sometimes all you need, To not let your heart bleed, Is to love yourself a little more through the pain, No matter how difficult life makes its terrain!
We believe we need someone all the time. Someone to love us, someone to help us get through our dark times, someone to breathe us back to life, someone who gives us company, joy and laughter.
But tell me something, Recall the first time you ever felt hurt, bad, sad, upset, betrayed, or numb; name the person who's been with you throughout all that mess. Been with you through everything, that life's ever thrown at you.
You know who's been there with you through all that?? Read the first word again!!!
Yesss, undoubtedly, its you!! Not your closest friend, family, love, neighbor, bestfriend or relative. It has, is, and will always be you!!!
So I think you owe yourself an apology for being too harsh on yourself even after getting through all that alone, and taking yourself for granted; trying to fix and be there for people you love, while you've never really bothered about your own self.
The poem says it all....read every word of it...let it sink in...forget how you were, but this moment on, don't let anyone mess with you or your feelings. Keep your standards, self respect and boundaries high.
We think our height, weight, weaknesses, insecurities, fears, that's what define us. That's what we are to the world.
No, darling, you're mistaken!!! That smile you lended to the watchman today, the kindness you have in you, the warmth that's in you, the way children love to talk to you, the way you play with babies, the way you adore all the positives in people, whatever it is that you do such as these, THAT'S what defines you.
The number of times you helped people. The way you forgave, although you're broken inside. The way you carry love and warmth in you, although life's been hell these days, THAT'S YOU, my love❤
We're all surrounded by a couple of such people, who suck all our energy out, or always try to compete with us, or those who are always jealous of whatever we accomplish.
Stay away from such people. They may pretend like they love you, or they care for you. In reality they might also, but only until your accomplishments and successes, are much less than what they have and enjoy. The moment they sense you getting better in life than them, they'll gradually start showing their true colors!!!
Choose your relationships with people wisely. A small circle with good, genuine friends, who always cheer for you, and want the best for you, is way better than having hundreds of fake ones showing fake love.
And like the famous saying, whatever happens in our life is always for a reason or a season. Everytime you feel pain, you may wonder it's happened to you, only to hurt you or take away happiness from you.
No, it's come to reassure you, that everything will be fine, and that it's not the end. It's come to show you the little brave warrior in you, that even you didn't know of. It's come to make you belive in hope and yourself, yet again!
Similarly, be it any person or instance, everything happens for a reason. And just because you can't find the reason, doesn't mean it doesn't exist...
Have faith...trust the process...cheers to a stronger YOU ❤
And one of the things we fail to do is notice and acknowledge ourselves. Realize how we grew. How we overcame all those things that once killed us, shattered us into million pieces.
Things we spoke to others about, things we hid from the world, things that broke us, but chin up!!! Look at yourself now!!
Back then could you ever imagine yourself to have overcome all that?? And now see where you are!! Yess, ofcourse those wounds are still healing, so you gotta be gentle on yourself, but you've learnt so much in the process!!!
Before you appreciate the people around you, or wait for others to notice how you overcame your hurdles, YOU gotta notice yourself. You gotta hype yourself up, treat yourself, motivate yourself, cheer yourself up!!! Don't depend on someone else to do that for you!!
