My Lesson In Life

My Lesson In Life

Right now I may feel so lost,

yet truly I know I am not.

I am only experiencing one of life's many lessons,

that must somehow be taught.

I am learning that to love another,

you must first love the person you are within.

And if your sharing your life with someone,

You must always be best friends.

Don't ever try to be the person,

That someone else wants you to become.

If your true love doesn't like you for the person you are,

Then maybe it's not meant to be, maybe they aren't "the one".

Your life is what it is,

Because that is the life you have chosen to live.

It seems to me the more love a person is given,

The more love that person is able to give.

If you accept and love yourself,

You won't settle for less any longer.

You will overcome every obstacle,

And each victory will bring confidence,

And will only make you stronger.
