I believe in me

Source

If you do not love yourself, then who will? If you do not look after yourself, then who will? When you are sad can you create a smile on your own face? Do you feel lonely when there is no one but you around? Are you your own best friend or do you rely on another for that purpose?

There will come a day when you feel lonely and there will come a day when you feel sad and may cry. There will come a day when everyone else has found someone and you have not and there will come a time when it seems the rest of the world have a family and you do not.

If you find happiness in material things and social status, what is left for you when those things does not matter anymore. If you are afraid to be by yourself and you rely on other people to bring happiness into your life, what do you have if those people let you down or left this world for the next? Who will bring you the joy and the laughter when there is no one left in this world but you?

You are strong, you are beautiful, you have the power to create your own life and whatever you want in it.

You should be your own best friend, because in the end it is just you and yourself.

Wow! What thought provoking questions! There was a time in my life when, even though I was married and had a family, I had to learn to live with and accept myself. There was no one doing any nurturing for me, and I had to realize that it was okay to do it for myself. It is a tough thing when you are not used to it.

You're so right, it was supposed to read like a poem but it changed along the way. Thanks!

This doesn't read like a poem. Sounds like it belong in the personal development or creative writing category.
