So when I bare my body instead of my soul
Know I am opening myself up to you the only way
I have ever known.
In 2018, I will continue to grow and to love myself despite mistakes and faults. I’ve never been good at making mistakes. It makes me want to bathe in my own guilt and want to disappear forever, hiding out of shame. But, maybe in 2018, I can learn a healthier way to deal with failure. In 2018, maybe I can learn how to turn my mistakes into something bigger and better.
You will feel like you will be alone forever. And you will think that they were only the person in the world you could ever love you like that. But in time, will come clarity. In time, you will see someone else smile and you will feel less alone. In time, you will be laughing with your friends at all at once you won’t feel sad. In time, will come the comfort from your own heart.
Stop beating yourself every time you gain a few pounds. Instead, learn how to appreciate your body for all that it does for you. And please realize that your weight is just a number. Nothing more.
Sometimes, you will have to break someone’s heart. Don’t beat yourself up over that. Don’t blame yourself. It’s not your fault for feeling a different way.
Stop letting people walk all over you. Know your own worth. Know your brilliance. You will only find love, when you ultimately love yourself.
The love you need to wait for is the kind that turns two souls into one. It’s the kind of love that is so powerful, it could shame the sun. It’s the kind of love that helps you understand yourself more. It’s the kind of love that makes you love yourself even more. It’s the kind of love that will convince you that you are worthy of it. It will be the kind of love that will finally help you realize that you deserve this. That you deserve this beautiful, blooming, and radiant love.
Let 2018 be the year you stop throwing yourself a pity party and start believing in your own heart.
