as you get older, you realize that you’re not always right and there’s so many things you could’ve handled better, so many situations where you could’ve been kinder and all you can really do is forgive yourself and let your mistakes make you a better person.

When I was a baby, I loved myself. My mess didn’t bother me, and my cries never startled me. I knew that I was complete.
When I was a little girl, I questioned those around me and told them when they were unfair. I raised my voice and showed them I wasn’t beat.
But alas , the world didn’t tolerate that in girls
When I was a tween, I danced around on my own. I felt a joyous connection with my body. I marvelled at my beauty from my head to my feet.
But alas, the world didn’t tolerate that in girls
When I was a teen, I began to grow angry and unsure. At times I was angry at the world but slowly myself, I did begin to cheat.
And alas, the world preferred me somewhat that way, but still remained too much of me for them to bear. I gave them chunks of me to eat.
When I was a young woman, I forgot who I was. I hurt myself and called it pleasure. The vultures circled me, sensing my diminishing body heat.
And there I was exactly where they wanted me, feeble and weak.
One day I realised that I am all that matters to me, that day I became a woman. I grabbed hot sand from the ground and threw it at the vultures, I broke their beaks.
I stood up and embraced myself . I then walked feebly to fresh water. I bathed myself, smiling as I did so, I sat down and grabbed my feet.
I am a woman now. I will not live to serve up my pure essence and call of love. They will come to me as equals, honouring me. As for me, myself I shall meet.
And alas, some may like it and others may not, but I will love myself with all that I have got.

Promise me not to hide yourself when you're in pain, it's unfair that we laughed together but you cried alone

I must learn to love the fool in me - the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries.

Go and love someone exactly as they are. then, watch how they transform into the greatest truest version of themselves. when one feels seen and appreciated in their own essence, one is instantly empowered.
