I like certain aspects of myself
and others I don’t
Like for instance I don’t like the fact
that I sacrifice my happiness for others
when they wouldn’t do the same for me
I’ve spent many a year people pleasing
or at least one person in particular
for the wrong reasons
For stupid unjustifiable reasons
This I don’t like
But how can I love myself after whom
I sacrificed my happiness for
ended up negatively affected
the most
I don’t need to love myself before I’m capable of liking others
That’s not what’s challenging at all
What’s challenging is forgiving myself
for not liking myself in the first place
And the same goes for relationships
Liking leads to love
Not the other way around
