I put all my time and effort into trying to convince you to love me. I showed you everything and you decided I was not enough. That made me believe that I am unlovable. There was one special person whose opinion that I forgot about, Mine. In diminishing myself to fit your standards to somehow deserve your love, I lost me. I lost you. I was lonely, I thought ...What good is it for me to love myself if no one else will. I can't hold my self, rock myself to sleep, and lean on myself. But here is the kicker, even if it is me loving myself, I am loved. It is enough because I am.
