A Short on Self-love

The more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique.
–Walt Disney

Sometimes, you just need a listener.

Someone to bear witness to your true self.

Someone to understand you as you want to be understood.

Someone to convey his or her admiration of the deep-down you without saying a single word.

Someone who is there for you not just to prop you up, but to show you your own two feet.

Someone who understands what you want, and who will go out of their way to fight for it- And do it with a smile.

If you have someone like that in your life, he or she is you soul-mate.

If you do not, you’ve got the next-best (or arguably better) thing.

Yourself.

This may seem trivial to you, because it seemed so to me for a long time. That was back when I was naive enough to think that cliches aren’t true. In fact, 99% of them are. You just have to figure out what they mean TO YOU.

That common saying of Believe in yourself, you’ve heard it a thousand times I’m sure.

Guess what? It is time to hear it one more time.

Believe in yourself.

Believe in yourself, not in a narcissistic way. But in the way we are all meant to.

That is, without expectation or angst. Walk everyday with your head held high KNOWING that should you fall, there is a person just waiting to catch you.

That person is you.

Don’t forget that WE are the director of our blockbuster film. The film does not, CANNOT end until we are satisfied with what we have produced.

So keep believing, and keep producing.

Until next time.

Your friend,

-Tie
