🪶🪶🪶I owe myself an apologyFor all of the timesI tore myself apart.When I neglected my own needsLowered my standardsBerated myselfAnd put myself down.For the self-sabotageI continually inflicted upon myselfAnd the times when I apologizedFor being who I wasAnd expressing myself authentically.
And I owe myselfThe permission to start anew.To forgive myselfFor the battles I foughtThat weren’t mine to fightFor all of the loveThat I failed to give myselfAnd for the times when I failed to realiseThat rather than being brokenI was worthy of value, respectAnd beautiful, brilliant things in lifeAnd that how I treated myselfDictated how others would view meAnd in turn, behave towards meSo by showering myselfWith love, kindness, forgiveness and respectIn turn, I could pave the wayFor others to do the same.
