I can be silly. . .

I can be bad. . .

I can be a lot of things a lot of the time.

Living my life--

emotional distress.



With open arms--

i welcome--


Because. . .

this is me.

This is who I am.

I'm psychotic.

I'm neurotic.

I'm sweet.

I'm sour.

I'm everything and nothing at the same time.

I. Am. Me.

Loving myself despite all that I've been through, all of the heartache and pain. Loving myself when I've looked in the mirror and wanted to shatter the reflection looking back at me. Loving myself when I can't get out of bed for hours. Loving myself when I look at my body and feel insecure. Loving myself when I don't see what my partner sees. Loving myself when there feels like there's no hope for me. Loving myself despite my illnesses; they don't define me. Loving myself when I have no motivation. Loving myself because I'm not perfect. Loving myself when I accomplish that task I've been working on. Loving myself despite all of these faults.
