I am mine.
before i am ever anyone else’s
The title above is something that has been on my mind for a while now, but it wasn’t until these past couple of months that it has truly registered to me.
I am on a new journey. My current journey consists of learning about myself and what I want and what I need, accepting that person and loving that person. This is not a journey in which I need or want companionship. It’s about me and only me.
We each have to become whole people before asking someone else to join our journey. What could I possible give to someone else that I haven’t been willing to give myself? Not honesty, not care, not understanding, not forgiveness and more importantly, real genuine love. Now I’m not saying that I don’t love myself. I do. What I’m saying is that if I’m willing to be all that I can be for someone else, I have to be all I can be for myself first.
Take the time out to understand and love you before you try to give that to another person. It’s worth it. I promise.
I’m selfish. I think it’s better to be selfish alone than to bring someone else into it, don’t you ?
