Reason's to love yourself
When you don't look the way you want to or feel the way you think you should
Not because you believe you deserve it.
Not because you look the way you want to or feel the way you think you should.
Not because you have accomplished and attained your goals.
Visions materialized, gifts actualized
When the demons inside you awaken and you want to shove them aside
When fear locks you inside you, and you want to run away
When you fall back into patterns you thought you had mastered, transformed
When societal standards render you inadequate
When the internal prosecution yells “Guilty!”
Choose love when your achievements fall far below your expectations
When you feel worthy of rejection
Broken beyond repair
Choose love when you feel unlovable
For what you believe is ugly about you
For the pain that rips at your heart,
The fear that clouds your mind,
The walls that stifle your soul
The habits that get in the way of all you ever dreamed you would become
Choose love for the part of you that hates you.
There is nothing more clarifying than an open heart
Nothing more powerful than a compassionate disposition
Nothing more beautiful than a person who feels at home in their own skin
Choose love because there is nothing that’ll make you more loveable, than love itself.
Because it allows you to embrace pain rather than overworking or overindulging to escape it
Because if you love yourself, you’ll treat yourself like you would someone you love
Because when it fills you it shines its light on those nearby
Choose love because love is a choice. Now.
No matter what you did one minute, one day, or one week ago,
Choose love and it will form from you the person you believe is deserving of it.
So choose love, Love.
