Being Kind to oneself

I am one who spent nights thinking about the words others said;

I was one who was frustrated, feeling no matter what I did,

I could never be the other person- the pretty one, the smart one, the popular one.

My internal struggle ate away my consistencies, I did try to hide them.

Lord, I was one who felt like it was always day one.

I was going to change, but I wanted to think of more reasons not to ask for Your help.

I was scared, I did not want to show how I was weak.

Yet, constantly, in days of turmoil or ‘alright’ moments, You never fail to remind me.

My motives were centered on my ego, and the acceptance of others;

forgetting that these have drawn me farther from the heart of Yours.

To be content and grateful for who I am and know that I have the capability to do more through You,

I choose to be kinder to myself today.

This cause was inspired by a young lad, Abner A. Ibag, who has passed away after 18 precious years of existence. He has left a legacy of positivity and have become an inspiration to his family circle, friends and his acquaintances; a beaming beacon who has shared selfless acts of kindness, emanating an aura of joy with a contagious spirit of bringing smiles and laughter. Continuing this feat, from a period of hiatus, I aspire to continue sharing a heart of caring through social media- with stories and encouraging updates, and connecting people with the same mindset. Everyday stresses may become overwhelming, but know that you are not alone going through this. Would you like to join us? Feel free to send us your messages, inquiries and suggestions. Let's brighten up the world. Keep smiling!
