38 I AM MY BEST INVESTMENT

When I learn to treat myself well, I won’t accept anything less than the best. Doing so allows me to understand what being mistreated is.
When I understand myself. I am better able to express, articulate and clarify my wishes. It allows me to recognize when I am understood and misunderstood.
When I make sure that I take care of my needs, it allows me courage not to allow myself to be coerced into self-neglect.
When I give to myself that, which I desire from others, I can identify when I am getting what I want.
When I love myself completely with honesty and integrity, I am able to keep it real and honour myself in all things. It allows for a continuity of self-advocacy even when it seats me uncomfortably.
When I accept me, as I am, with all my flaws, imperfections and idiosyncrasies, it matters little who does not, and makes those who do, all the more a blessing.
I set the standard for how I will and am treated

    1. Beth I can only take partial credit. I believe the Divine works through me and it just comes and formats itself in just the right way. The thing about writing poetry for me is that I don't over think it, or force it into what i think it should me, must be or have to be. I just write what I am feeling, exactly as I feel it, I allow the spirit of how I am in that moment be the director to what develops and how it is shaped.

      Thanks for stopping by, it is always a pleasure.

  16. "To thine own self be true." Honestly I don't know where that saying came from but if you can deal with yourself that should give you the template on how to deal with others. Nice thoughts Rhapsody.

  17. When I understand myself. I am better able to express, articulate and clarify my wishes. It allows me to recognize when I am understood and misunderstood.

    Isn't this the God honest truth. I couldn't agree with you more. And one of the reasons why I believe that EVERYTHING starts within one's inner being.


    Also, I like where you spoke of loving yourself with honesty and integrity allowing you to keep it real and honor yourself in all things. Preach.

    1. Loving yourself with honesty and integrity really is the key, it keeps us from being lead astray. I agree it really starts from within, so many times we are guilty of searching externally for that which dwells within.

  20. well writing,
    sometime we (I) treat ourself (myself) so bad without noticing it
    we (I) neglect our (my) self and accept less from others subconsciously
    that is gonna change...
