Choose yourself and do not rely on others to choose you.
And in doing so, you place value on yourself.
You do not have to wait on others
To confer value upon you.
Waiting on others to choose you,
To say you are valuable to them,
It makes you weak, anxious,
Prone to jealousy and insecurity.
In choosing yourself,
You give yourself
Power to bring about your own healing.
It gives you strength
To cut the ties that bind you
To feelings of worthlessness,
And to things that diminish you.
If you love someone or something –
This choosing has to be ‘free’ –
Without any tendril of coercion or manipulation.
Otherwise, it is not a choice,
To choose wisely
Is to say ‘Yes’ with an open heart,
And to embrace your choice
