Until you believe it
Until you believe you are worthy of love, no one can love you the right way, it will never be real to you; it will only be a distorted mirror the prison of your mind.
Until you truly believe how precious you are, love will only frighten you. You will never believe what I see when I look at you. Not yet.
Life can only take you to places you let it: to the place of self-imposed punishments, defeatism and bitterness. But everything you go through will soften your hardened heart and will lead you back to loving yourself.
Happiness can only find you when you have learnt to accept yourself, when you know your worth and you’re not chasing the affirmation of others; when you’re not running from yourself any more. Then you will believe me and you will see the person I see when I look at you. And then, you will love again and you will be loved; you will trust and you will let me in because you will no longer be afraid of the person I’ll see in you. One day, you’ll realize that I knew who you are, I knew it all along, I just wanted to let you find your way.
