1. “Self-Love Journey”
In a world that tells us to be perfect
It’s hard to love ourselves, we forget
But we must learn to be kind and forgiving
And to our own hearts, be ever-giving
2. “Embrace Your Flaws”
Our flaws are what make us unique
To hide them away is to be meek
Embrace them fully, love them well
For all our imperfections, we must tell
3. “The Beauty Within”
Beauty’s more than skin deep
It’s the love we have for self to keep
In our hearts it must begin
For that’s where beauty lives within
We must treat ourselves with respect
Love ourselves, and never neglect
Our worth is not measured by others’ views
It comes from within, and it’s up to you
1. Unconditional Love
I am who I am,
Flawed and all,
But that’s okay,
I won’t let myself fall.
I am worthy of love,
And that starts from within,
No matter what anyone thinks,
I’ll love myself until the end.
I’m not perfect,
But that’s what makes me real,
I’ll cherish every part of me,
And embrace all that I feel.
So let me be me,
Let me shine bright,
I love myself unconditionally,
And that is my birthright.
2. Self Care is Not Selfish
Society tells us
Put others first
But what about us?
We have needs and worth.
We need love and kindness
We need to rest and recharge
It’s not selfishness
To take care of our heart.
Self love is the best gift
We can give to ourselves
It makes us strong and uplifted
And it affects everyone else.
So don’t feel guilty
To take time for you
Self care is crucial,
And it’s long overdue.
I am enough, just as I am,
Flaws and all, I am a perfect gem.
I don’t need anyone to validate,
Or make me feel worthy or great.
My beauty comes from within,
From the love I have for myself, not a sin.
I will embrace my curves and edges,
And not let anyone define my boundaries or ledges.
I will own every part of me,
The silly and the serious, the wild and the calm sea.
I will celebrate my uniqueness,
With pride and confidence, not meekness.
I will be my own biggest fan,
And surround myself with those who understand.
That loving oneself is not egotistical,
But necessary and essential.
So here’s to me, and all that I am,
A beautiful soul with a heart so grand.
I will continue to grow and learn,
And love myself, for all that I yearn.
The Journey to Self Love
I once was lost, so lost in thought,
Tangled in self-doubt, confusion wrought.
I searched for love in others’ eyes,
Hoping their validation would suffice.
But their approval was just a temporary high,
It couldn’t heal the wounds I held inside.
I realized I had to start with me,
Learn to love who I am, who I want to be.
At first it felt like an impossible feat,
To love the flaws that I couldn’t delete.
But slowly and surely, I began to see,
My imperfections were a part of me.
I learned to embrace the quirks and differences,
To not compare myself to others’ experiences.
I listened to my heart’s desires and needs,
And let go of societal pressures and feeds.
I started to treat myself with kindness and care,
To not let negative self-talk linger there.
I nourished my mind, body, and soul,
And allowed myself to set healthy goals.
And as I journeyed towards self love,
I realized it wasn’t something you could just shove
Into your heart with a single act,
It’s a continuous process, perhaps lifelong in fact.
But I’ve learned to enjoy and appreciate the ride,
To celebrate each step with love and pride.
For each time I choose to love myself,
I am empowered to be my best self.
So I encourage you to join me on this path,
To care for yourself as if you were a precious craft.
And know that as you work towards self love,
You are deserving of all the love from above.
