Knowing Me as You Do....

Knowing who we are....

Knowing and sharing our life with Nature in the wild....
Knowing and sharing our life with Nature in the wild.... | Source

loving and liking yourself is the first step to healing...


Knowing me as you do…would you pick me as a friend ?

I’ve always known when you are right..

And , the times when you were wrong.

You can be strict or loving it all depends..

But you have always been strong.

You’ve inspired me to always do my best,

No matter where or what the test.

You’ve been there for me in good times and bad

And turned my life around when I was sad...

We’ve laughed and cried so many times...

We’ve gotten to know all the emotional signs...

Of when to lean and when to bend...

And ,what type of message we need to send...

We’ve lost weight together and wrinkled as well..

Raised kids and sometimes even hell…

The years have passed and lessons we’ve learned

Have made our friendship one worth earned..

But through it all you’ve stuck by me…

Cause I am you and you are me…..

back2basics...Muchas gracias por su comentario.. Me alegro de que usted disfrutara de ello.

Soy un creyente firme que debemos amar nosotros mismo antes de que podamos ofrecerlo hasta otros. Escribo en qué creo y consigo una emoción cuando los otros entienden de donde vengo ... tienen un gran día....

This one confused me for a second LOL. I guess we should learn to like ourselves, otherwise we will live very unhappy lives.

PHILLYDREAMER...yes we should learn to like ourselves...this poem was my take on ME evaluating ME..and not giving up on myself regardless of the situations. We all have a -/+, a ying and yang...and it's nice to know that we can call/rely on ourselves when we need...thnaks for comments...yes we can be happier in life if we work at it..

have a great week-end.
