You deserve better than how you treat yourself

Self love isn’t just all about
Scented candles and bubble baths,
Green tea and romance novels,
Warm blankets and hot fudge;

Self love is hard sometimes,
Doing the dirty dishes that have been
In the sink for two weeks,
Pushing yourself to go out on a run
After laying in bed for four days,
Cooking yourself a healthy meal
After living off noodles for months;

Self love is all of this,
It is about loving yourself,
And forgiving yourself,
Cutting out toxic people,
And embracing who you are;

Self love isn’t always pretty,
It is exhausting sometimes,
But if you can’t love yourself,
No one can do it for you;
