God, I wish I knew how important that word was when I was much younger. I wish my mother taught me how valuable she was too herself and how important I would be to me when I become an adult. I wish I knew that I am my own problem and therefore my only salvation other than the obvious (which is God.)
I wish how powerful a lesson in life it is to learn to love oneself and truly embrace your presence, your moment, and understand your true purpose. I have met, lived, loved, imitated, cherished many men and women and for so many they have no clue how important they are in my life because they don't value themselves. I wish to one day to let everyone realize the importance of us as individuals, as teachers, mothers, fathers, lovers, best friends, providers, caretakers, and beings. I hope to one day remind all of us that we only mean so much, and do so much when we love ourselves with so little. I only want to love myself unconditionally, with no promise, no remorse, no excuse, no rational reasoning...so I can one day give all that love and more to my children, my family, significant other and my close friends.
You see they say this over and over again but today I got it.... You can't offer something you ain't got. Man, isn't that the truth.
