I’ll be for myself, everything you couldn’t be.
I’ll wake up and tell myself that I’m beautiful and that I have purpose. I’ll give myself pep talks and try to make myself laugh when I’m feeling down. I’ll take myself on dates and bring myself my favorite food. I’ll make sure to listen to me; really listen to my thoughts. I’ll take care of myself. I won’t neglect anything that has to do with my heart.
Because the truth is there’s nothing you could’ve done for me that I couldn’t do for myself, but I wanted you to make me feel less alone, to make me feel that someone out there cared as much as I did.
And I think that’s the most important lesson you learn when you fall for the wrong person — that you could be everything you want to yourself if you really had to and that sometimes you’re the only person you can really count on.
You’re the only person who’s not going to leave you and the love you give yourself is all that really matters.
So this is my vow to myself — I promise I’ll always be there for me, I promise to be kinder to myself when I start doubting my existence, I promise to be aware of my thoughts and feelings and cater to them and I promise that, as long as I live, I’ll always love myself, even when it’s hard, even when I’m being difficult, even when I’m not perfect and even if no one else loves me.
I’ll never give up on myself. I’ll always be proud of myself and the battles I’ve fought. I’ll be my forever, I’ll be there through thick and thin.
I finally realized that what I’ve been looking for was already in me, it just took you not seeing it for me to see it.
