I forgive myself
I allow myself to feel forgiven, welcomed, helped, held... Despite the things of me I didn't use to like nor accept. I deserve attention and regard independently of external pressures for it to be otherwise. I forgive myself for the hate and harm I have caused me, because I could not see beauty, I couldn't see acceptance, instead I ran after crooked perfection,remaining breathless, remaining weak. I forgive myself for the pain, for the damage, for the lack of self confidence. I forgive myself for the harm, the misunderstanding, the unbearable discomfort. I forgive myself and I firmly believe I deserve hugging, indiscriminate love, attention, companionship, understanding, admiration despite my flaws. I forgive myself.
