Dear Self


Dear self,
Remember that loving others isn't genuine without loving yourself
Know that love is life's greatest treasure
But don't put it on a pedestal
Love hard, until it hurts, no matter the ending results
A person may not hear your heartbeat even if it's beating for them
Love is work
And no matter the troubles it brings your way, fight for it
Love isn't forceful, settling, or selfish
Love is patient, open, and forgiving
The only thing strong enough to stand in the way of love
Is the mind
