The first step to emotional connectivity is loving yourself(self-love). There’s a lot that comes with self-love; Greater happiness, stronger resilience, increased motivation, better physical and mental health e.t.c Before I proceed I will love to give a brief definition of self-love.

”According to Merriam Webster dictionary, self-love is said to be proper regard for and attention to one’s own happiness or wellbeing”.

Truth be told, the majority of us lack this. We go about seeking for love and regards from others(vice-versa) and get hurt in the process, you know why? Because you can’t give what you don’t have!!! Beneath is poetry about loving yourself, I believe in one way or the other it’s relatable.


It’s not a myth 

It’s never a joke 

Depression hits your rock bottom and we have nowhere to turn to

Friends and family have left because our once happy smile has turned to a hollow laughter

But there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel

Screaming love yourself!!!

Everything I try, I feel like it never works

I’m either fighting myself in my head or fighting my family

Nobody understands me and holidays are Worst ’cause It seems like the world’s smiling without me

I know what they say when they talk about me

I know they look at me and wish I was gone

I’m a mess, I’m depressed but I say it proudly ’cause that’s what makes me and nobody’s perfect but I keep ongoing hoping it’s worth it.

I’m still fighting all these demons in my head

I’m never really alone ’cause they’ll be with me till I’m probably dead 

But I promise this, no matter how heartless you feel deep inside there is always a little light

You could still be who you want to be, trust me it’s never too late to start all over. we’ve got time to make amends and changes

And I know how it feels to be judged by all your mistakes because life isn’t perfect

They point at all of your flaws, throw it in your face, and that is weighing you down, you feel like you can’t get a break

Trust me you ain’t the only one

In a world full of people we’re just the lonely ones

The hurt ones

The lost ones

The crazy ones

The misplaced, battered and bruised one’s

Where do you go when the world sits on your shoulders?

No one’s there to answer your questions searching for closure

why do we run from the love that we’ve all been searching for?

You’d probably only understand if you’ve been hurt before

Well, you’re not alone and would never be

All the places you go, you feel like it’s not a home

I know you feel like there’s no escape

I know you try holding faith

I know you still try to smile even though you made some mistakes

Just hold on for the ones who wanna see you win

And we’ll hold on for you 

We’ll hold on for anybody who’s broken and bruised

I used to hate myself and didn’t know what to do

Bottled my emotions, I locked myself in a room

Hurt by all the people I trusted, that did me dirty and made me feel I can never be happy

But I learned not to waste water on gardens that never bloom ’cause it’s a lost course

This life is beautiful

Don’t give up too soon ’cause you never really know what could happen

And no matter what they do to you

Don’t let them break your soul before the star inside fizzles out

Cause I promise time heals every hurt maybe the scars too if you would allow it

I know some scars never heal

Sometimes pain’s is all we can feel

But that’s what shows that you’re real and you human

I’ve been through some things I would never confess

So I just keep it all inside and feel the weight in my chest

God knows I was low and depressed

I mean I lost my touch with God and humanity

But he still shows me I’m blessed cause he is blessed to have me as his creation.

Yes!!! He is blessed to have us as his creation, it will do you no harm loving yourself if you call it selfish then so be it, just love yourself.

Do you want to know why self-love is very important? It is the key to mental health and well-being, keeping depression and anxiety at bay. A little tip to what happens when you love yourself (my experience )

I started to feel more secure as a person as I tap into my inner being. I started to believe in myself more. I started to trust myself more.

PS: when you deepen your connection with yourself through self-love, you will connect on a deeper level with others🤞For a start, I will be giving you five ways to develop self-love. 1)Forgive yourself. 2)start each day by telling yourself something really positive. 3)Stop the comparison. 4)Embrace and love things that make you different. 5)Find something to be grateful for every day!!!
