Me, Myself, and I

Me, Myself, and I

What’s it like to have a relationship with yourself?
Is it like in the movies where everything is just fine? Or is it a constant battle, a struggle to even love yourself?

Speaking for myself, I’m on the battle ground with my relationship. It’s a struggle just to get up in the morning. I’m too busy focusing on past mistakes that I don’t see the beauty inside of me. I let anxiety and silly fears stop me from pursuing my dreams. I hold myself back from being the real me. I try to build myself up, but there’s always a ‘what if’ around the corner. I look in the mirror telling myself the truth I need to hear.

I need to break free from the war inside of me and focus on what truly matters. We’re all beautiful in our own way. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. I’m working on my relationship with myself. I’m risking everything I have just so I can be truly happy again. Are you? If not, what’s holding you back?
