When you can???t love yourself

Posted by ABHINAV KUMAR YADAV on July 19, 2017 at 5:40 AM

                                                     I write about love, life and what we are scared to talk about. All


A Sometimes you wake up and you can’t love your breath

Sometimes you go to bed and you can’t seem to rest

They tell you you’re the best and all you hear is you’re a mess

They tell you it is not your fault and all you know is you are the cause

You read about self-love on the internet and hate yourself more for being bad at it

You buy the book on meditation and the breathing causes you frustration

You call yourself names they used to call you when you were a kid

Then you shame yourself for shaming yourself for shaming yourself

Until you break

Your body hurts

Your brain hurts

Your heart hurts

Your chest pounds

Your legs stall

Your back pain grips you

Your gut wrenches

You cannot connect the dots

You cannot even discern squares from dots

Your reality is a nightmare

You cannot distract from the mental noise

You have no choice

But accept that today you don’t love yourself

And that’s okay

It is not hard to love yourself

It is just easier to hate yourself

Tomorrow is another day

Be part of my journey to be a full-time writer, and publishing my first book, by giving as little as $1 a month. Be my patron.
