You can be loved….

 

This poem has helped me so much and has become one of my favorites:) First time I read it, it hit me right at my heart. I felt it was written for me, because it contained many of my fears and feelings.

 

You can be loved,

even if you are not perfect

even if you don’t know the answer

even if you are horribly confused

even if you can’t make anyone feel better

even if you don’t know how to make yourself well

even if you made a mistake

even if you don’t know how to be

even if you are ashamed

even if you are hopeless

even if you don’t quite fit in

even if you are scared

even if you are lonely

even if you shouldn’t be having such a hard time right now

even if you don’t think so

even if you haven’t found your place yet

even if you aren’t proud of yourself

even if no one has really seen you before

even if you don’t know what to do

even if you try too hard

even if you’re disappointed

even if you don’t really like yourself right now

even if you are beyond good advice

even if you don’t know how to cry

even if you think this post must be meant for someone other than you
