I think there comes a point in time when you realize you are the most important piece to this jigsaw puzzle.
I tend to draw a lot of energy to my external environment and for the most part it’s because I genuinely care about it but something I’ve recently noticed is, it was just a way for me to neglect my own needs and pretend, at least for a little while that everything on my end was okay; but truth be told, I felt like a complete train wreck.
After so many jaded experiences… you can’t help but feel disheartened. However, putting a band aid on it and hoping it heals doesn’t actually make it go away. You realize you have to nurture that cut with love, care and antibiotics. Over time, the cut scabs over and you’re left with nothing more than perhaps a pigmented scar. Of course you’re never the same person you are coming out of it but that’s just the beauty of it; life moves on and you do too but the best part about it is you’re a little smarter and maybe a little wiser at the end of it all.
So with that, we need to stop focusing on everything else and start taking care of ourselves. it’s time to do YOU, and no one else.
