I Love You - Me
My EP friend that I affectionately refer to as “Z” is on a journey of discovery. The following is dedicated to her and I hope it inspires her to climb through that window when the doors are slammed shut in her face.
I love myself because I am me. I don't have to do anything, say anything, or look in a particular way to love myself. All I need to do is be me. It is enough that I am a beautiful human being and I don’t have to justify my reasons for my love for myself.
There may be things I'd like to learn to do better or things I'd like to change about myself. This is okay because I still accept myself the way I am now. As I begin to change in ways that become more helpful in coping with life, I won’t forget that I am just as worthy as I was before. However, now I have a now I have more strength than eve before.
If on some level I am not satisfied with my performance or the way a situation turns out, so what? Who cares? It doesn't matter what anybody thinks about me because I tried my best and I love myself for that. I accept the occurrence of any outcome regarding "my performance". All I need to do is to let go and be proud of myself for trying. I can learn from everything I do. I accept myself for being me, not for my performance. I am worthy and I deserve this love. Since I love myself and accept myself for who I am, I do not need to compare myself to anyone else. My self worth exists regardless what anybody says or does. I do not need anybody's approval because I love myself the way I am. I am a beautiful and special person. I have an inner beauty that is so radiant that I don't have any choice but to accept myself for who I am.
I love myself for who I was yesterday, for who I am today, and for who I will be tomorrow.
