True Love Always begins in LOVING YOURSELF

Updated: Jun 4

Hey Everyone,

I am just a normal teenager who has a heart, a soul and a brain just

like you all, but the only difference is that we all think differently

about ourselves and the world. I really want to talk about something

which happened in my life and changed it completely which still

affects me. I was really not happy to talk about this at the first place

but then I thought that if I will share my experiences with you all, you

will not do the same mistake that I did.

My heart stopped when I was just thirteen years old, looking back I

think that’s when I began to worry about what others thought of me.

I started seeing myself through their eyes. Soon, I began to shut out

my voice and started to listen to the voices of others. No one called

my name, neither did I! I completely went into darkness, where

there was no light to help me out. I started hating myself. I thought I

am just a useless person who cannot do anything right in life. I just

did not like me being myself. My parents expected a lot from me but

I couldn’t give them what they wanted and they started mocking me.

I was all alone. I remember, people treating like a voicemail. They

would behave so nicely in front of me but behind me they used to

hate me. I was all alone, but I didn’t stop because thankfully I had

one sanctuary which was Music.

I started listening to Music, through which I could understand myself

better. It helped me and told me that there still is voice in me which

says, stop worrying, speak up for yourself. The fact is It doesn’t

matter what your past was. Let the past be in past and let it go. What

matters is that where are you right now in your lie. If you struggle

talk to yourself. Wake up with an attitude of love and gratitude! Say

this to world “ITS MY TIME TO FLY HIGH!”


So often we try to move past our mistakes by saying things like, “that

wasn’t really me,” or “I was a different person back then.” The

brightest stars, your most visible and important features, are your

flaws and your mistakes.

Maybe I made a mistake yesterday, but yesterday’s me is still me. I

am who I am today, with all my faults. Tomorrow I might be a tiny bit

wiser, and that’s me, too. These faults and mistakes are what I am,

making up the brightest stars in the constellation of my life. I have

come to love myself for who I was, who I am, and who I hope to

become.

Until you accept those darker aspects of yourself, the shadows

among the light, the “self” you love won’t be your true self but an

idealized version. That’s why loving yourself takes courage and

forgiveness. You need courage to face your true self with all your

flaws and imperfections and you need to have the compassion to

forgive yourself for them.
