Friend or foe?
Constraint or reprieve?
Sentence of no,
Or yes I believe?
Full of emptiness,
Or purpose restored?
Wield your finesse,
Feel overawed evermore.
Friend or foe? …a question we should all ask ourselves, when we are facing problems that were most likely created or worsened by our own viewpoint, emotions, actions or even inaction.
We can either hold ourself back, or give a much needed helping hand; add fuel to a bad situation, or fuel our recovery and progression. Ultimately, it comes down to how much you value your own happiness, and by extension, the happiness of others.
Those close to you won’t like seeing you self-sabotaging or self-harming! If you feel lonely, but can’t even be a friend to yourself, how can you expect anyone to want to receive your friendship, or accept the position of being your friend. The same goes for love.
The greatest thing you can do for yourself is to let go of the self-destruct button and love yourself. Sure, none of us are perfect, but embracing that fact, and nurturing a more supportive view of your qualities, abilities and self-worth is crucial to realising a fulfilling, happy life.
Be your own best friend, your biggest fan, your greatest supporter… for when you realise you are awesome, others that are deserving of sharing in your happiness will too!
