If You’re Going To Love Yourself, Never Give Up


If you’re going to love yourself, never give up, and this means accepting your suffering as a part of your becoming. This may lead to hitting rock bottom before finding who you really are as a human being that needs a purpose. This may lead to loneliness due to a lack of conformity as you grow a sense of individuality. This may lead to ridicule from the people who don’t understand your vision, your goals. Sometimes these are the people you love, and this may lead to burning bridges and cutting relationships that are toxic and hindering your growth.

If you’re going to love yourself, never give up, and this means not settling for less and becoming the architect of your life. This may lead to overthinking and feeling too much. This may lead to the realization of your past mistakes. This may lead to living with regrets and choosing some self-destructive habits just to keep going. This may lead to suicidal thinking and still choose to live. The cure for suicide is choosing one more day and always one more day.

If you’re going to love yourself, never give up, and this means creating yourself in your pursuit of excellence. This may lead to losing your belief in god as you create your own values, as you carve your own path. This may lead to designing your own character as if you were writing a poem, painting or playing a musical instrument. You are a genius and deep inside you know that there is greatness in you and it scares, and it’s okay. The fear of greatness is the greatest feeling there is because that’s where it all starts. Your inner journey to becoming who you are.

If you’re going to love yourself, never give up, and this means taking care of yourself through believing in yourself and loving your wounds into flowers. There’s beauty in your failures. It means you tried. It means you’ll eventually succeed as long as you remember to always breathe.

If you’re going to love yourself, never give up. That’s the only way to freedom.

  1. I like this and don’t like it at the same time. I fear that my journey through present soul sufferings has not left me very courageous or strong or faithful; instead I have deep wounds infected with anger, fear, lingering pain, weakness, and exhaustion, and nagging, questions and doubts. But if I see scars as enhancements to the beauty of a soul, maybe others see a beauty in mine that I am blind to. My mirror doesn’t attract me, reflecting only failure, hatred of my present feelings of abandonment, and bitter sadness.

    • I think the courage, strength and faith come with healing and reconciliation, which takes time. Your mirror isn’t who you are. You’re much more than your sufferings. And perhaps the pain is a pathway to something more beautiful. It often is.
      I hope you don’t mind me replying to your comment. I usually don’t, but I read it and for some reason I felt drawn to reply. I can relate to the feelings you describe. Just know you’re not alone. Take care.

  2. There’s real power in your writing. Loving yourself is a journey, and at the same time it’s a choice we can make in this moment, to see perfection in ourselves just as we are. I have full faith that you will go far. Your life has already taught you a great deal. Wish you the very best. Take care.
