Ziggy's Friday Forethought 7: It Started With A Random Keystyle...

For "my" sake
My sanity
You utter the sweetest blasphemy
From your lips to my heart
Creating its own heartbeat
But quickly dying
The root of it all is decaying
As I watch you fall to pieces
Three words to end you
You chose slowly
Not wisely

Know that I am able to soar without you
HE and I control my existence
Loved me before you "loved" me
So I can be all I need

You fail to see that is not I that can save you
You must save yourself.

Low self esteem seems to be a trend these days. It can be subtle, but it's there. I had a lot of things running through my mind while I sat at this PC, and the poem above is a result. This won't be a long FF entry for today. The message is simple: before you can love anyone else, you must love yourself first. Love yourself harder than anyone else does. You really can't love a person the way they deserve to be loved until you love yourself in that way first.

That's why I start each and everyday by looking in the mirror and saying, "Ziggy, YOU are THE SHIT!"
Joking. But mantras work, if you're into self affirmations.

Digressing...people often jump into relationships thinking that they'll feel better about themselves if they can find someone else to love them. Wrong. Pay attention, and after a while, that person that you wanted to love love love love you, alllll the time, is going to be out the door. You should not need a babysitter/parental figure in a significant other. Why would you even expect someone to love you if you can't love yourself?
Trust me. Self love is the best love.
Be blessed, and enjoy this beautiful weekend!

btw: I'll probably have a couple of random posts in the next few days. And be on the lookout for a BlackMuzik update. :o)
