All of us at some point or the other might have heard this “you’re all I got” or “you’re all I need to complete me”. Yes I absolutely understand the conviction and the feelings behind these words and emotions; we’ve all spoken them out of love at one point or another including me.
But there’s something we need to think about, from when do we need people to complete us? From when have we become so dependent on other people, that we’ve lost the value of our own being? How and why does someone else have the power to break you or to shatter you to pieces? Are we not enough for ourselves? Are we in so desperate need of companionship? From when did we become so weak that we constantly need to be reminded that someone loves us? But more importantly, why?
Have we become so busy telling and explaining or showing someone we love them that we’ve forgotten to love our very own self? Have we really forgotten the importance of self-love? We all know the answer don’t we? It’s a yes, isn’t it?
So we need to be reminded of this,” At the end of the day; you’re all you’ve got.” From the very first breath of yours to everyday that has gone and every day that is going to arrive, till the very last breath of yours you’ll meet many people some are going to stay longer, some for a very short period of time but they are all going to leave at one point or another for many different reasons, but there is one person who’s going to stay and it is you and only you not your husband, your wife, your children, your parents but YOU.
We all know this fact deep down, we’ve heard of this, we’ve read about this a million times, but we have never given it a thought, have we? Tell me the last time you did something because you liked it, because you wanted to do it? we all say we love ourselves but do we, really?
Who was there consoling you at 3 a.m. in the morning when you were lying on the bed thinking everything was falling apart? Who was there to help you get up again when you thought everything in you was breaking, when the pain drenched you so deep it physically hurt. You’d not been yourself for weeks but who noticed it for the very first time, it was you isn’t it? Yes there might be people, who helped you through it, but you had to fight every emotion, you had to fight the pain, you had to find the courage and you had to find the strength to pick yourself up and carry on. It was you at the very end and you did it for no one but yourself.
So stop chasing people, chase yourself, find yourself because at the end, because when it matters the most, you’re going to know that you’re all you’ve got, that at the end it is always going to be you so stop letting your world revolve around people, yes they’re important, you learn a lot because of them, but everybody is temporary, they’re all going to leave at some point or the other but you, you are going to stay with yourself, you’re going to stay until you die, you’ll be the last one to leave yourself so learn to love the most important person in your life, learn to love yourself, because at the end you’re the only one who is going to stay and no body is going to love you more than you do.
