Try to Be Kind to Yourself

There comes a time in life when you meet someone so magnetic
Someone who brings such joy, your face hurts from smiling.
A person that somehow makes you feel safe, special and loved
By just EXISTING.
A person who doesn’t see their worth. But means everything to you.
Who’s smile could light up a room, even when they’re feeling DARK.
Someone you love with your whole heart and you try
NOT TO OVERWHELM.
Then you do something to mess it all up.
To get yourself cut out of their life.
Then they erase you.
Like you never even existed.
You don’t want to exist.
You are INVISIBLE.
You must be strong, but it’s hard.
So HARD.
You cannot stop crying.
You never imagined it would come to this.
How could you be so reckless?
So careless?
The positive self-talk doesn’t help
Yet you TRY.
To believe in the words you are saying.
You are worthy of being loved.
Not everyone you love will feel the same.
Not everyone will understand you.
You are broken but you are not
BEYOND REPAIR.
You may never have their love
And that’s OKAY.
It does not mean you do not deserve love
It will take you a while to believe this.
BE KIND TO YOURSELF
Not everyone will accept you
THAT’S OKAY
As much as it hurts, you will HEAL.
Believe you are not beyond love
Show yourself GRACE.
It WILL get better.
