Be kind to yourself


I felt impelled to express what's on my mind 

It's something that I've learned 

As the years have gone by

We tend to overthink our every move

What we say and dont 

How the people we spent time with

Is left criticizing how we acted 


Others aren't worried thinking about us 

Becuase they're busy going over how they messed up


We all need connection 

Human on human interaction 

We need the talks and laughs and it's great when those events take place

Dont ruin the good time by replaying it in your head 


What you did wrong and how you were no fun

You enjoyed it I'm sure they did too 

Love yourself

We all self analyze but please just breathe and let it be 

And enjoy the times with others without ending it feeling sour. Be kind to yourself

  • Comment from author about the poem: It makes me sad when I spend time with someone that I genuinely enjoyed and had a good time. And after the hang out they're saying how they felt awkward or were to this or that. And we all tend to do this. And I've heard it so much. I hope we can be kinder to ourselves and just enjoy the times we get with others without ending it by criticizing ourselves

    We certainly all need that connection with others, it has been missed so much during the passed months.
