How Do I Love You? By Loving Me First!
"Charity begins at home. "
We must love ourselves before we can love anyone else. But how does one just love oneself out of the blue? Especially if they were not loved by their parents or did not feel loved by them. Of course, this is not the case with me. I was loved by my father who is now passed....I think. And I am loved by my mother...in her own ways of thoughtfulness. Yes, I also feel I was loved growing up and it was a good feeling. Lately, I don't feel as loved as much as I want, because I feel that times have been tough for a very long time, but I know time has a way of changing!
For the broken hearted
How do I love you?
I must love myself first.
And because you left me abandoned and alone
I was hard to fend for myself on my own.
I am now beginning to learn how to value
I am now beginning to love myself more and as a result others too.
Accepting my life situations and the way I have become is important too.
For those who have been sick
I hope you have found some compassion
Some kindred spirits who have shown you love
They are everywhere
You just have to seek them out
For the perfectionist
Perhaps you felt you had to be perfect
to satisfy the parents/people in your life
You are okay just as you are
For the complicated
You are complex and uniquely designed
You are special and talented
You are wonderful
I love you
you have always been a cute kid
And loved by all!
Mistreated at times, yes we all have/were
You are strong and have made it along so far, this far
And you can keep on going
Everyday your love stronger is showing!
You are peaceful at heart and serene
and let the world see your inner beauty shine forth!
Be a beacon of light for those around you who may be in distress
As they have been for you as well
You are smart and precocious, young at heart!
There is good in you
As there is good in all of us!
Don't let discouragement keep you down!
Smile and let the world know you
