Say You Love Me

“Opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes, dreams… That is being naked.” ~ Rob Bell”

Love Yourself 

Why are people so comfortable giving themselves away over and over? Beginning again so quickly all to have it end in the same ways. How does a heart behave that way? Is it really love or is it what they want it to be? Is it just a fix? Something to distract them from the root of the problem? Something to delay the truth? Don’t we all need to give it some time? Don’t we all need to learn to be fine in our own company? How can anyone know us if we can hardly stand to get to know ourselves? How can we be together in love if we can’t be alone with ourselves? In love, I’ve come to learn that two halves never make a whole. What will it take to be whole on our own, so we can learn the love we all need? We never want to feel what we feel when it comes to pain. We never take the time to heal. Sometimes we just find something to numb us on the inside. Then, we choose another mask to make us look new on the outside. But in the end, we’re always back at square one. What’s the point? 

You might as well give it time. Learn and grow and heal. Accept the feelings. Accept the vulnerability. Break into pieces and then learn to put yourself back together again with your own two hands. The more that you make this easy, the more that you make it harder. Be wise. Be strong. Know yourself. Respect yourself. I’m not saying it’s simple. I know it isn’t. Even with good sense I struggle to take my own advice. But whatever it takes just promise yourself that you’ll come out on the other side. Forget all the wrong ones. You can be the right one. Love yourself.

About Me

– I am an ancient soul, in a modern body, with a futuristic state of mind.


“Learning from experiences is one of the ways in which we decide if experience may frighten us, weaken us or make us self-doubt, but it may also make us stronger. Sankofa teaches there are valuable lessons to be learned from the past.”
