Self Care

You have achieved something today.

It doesn’t matter how small it was,
you achieved it.

And what have you learned?

You have learnt that nobody is looking at you.
You have learnt that some clothes will suit you.
You have learnt not to pin a day’s happiness on somebody else.
You have learnt to be independent.
You have learnt that you are not disgusting.
You have learnt that you deserve to treat yourself, sometimes.

You have learnt how to feel good about yourself.
You have learnt how to say “I deserve this”.

You have learnt that you are not a bad friend.
You have learnt that it’s ok to say no.

You have learnt to back off
and allow someone their space,
because not everyone processes their emotions
at the same pace that you do.

You have learnt that you are still young.
You have learnt that your life isn’t over.
You have learnt that you have strength in your arms,
power in your thighs.
You have learnt that your veins are rushing with energy.

You have so much life ahead of you.
And you will make the most of it now,
with all of this, that you have learned.
