Acceptance - Poem by Dee Daffodil

Accepting oneself
Takes time
Learning to truly love oneself...
A bit longer
Rewriting all
The negative scripts
Developed over years
Can only be done
Step by step
Day by day
And certainly
In a loving way

    It's like a big unravelling of all the rubbish that we bind to ourselves, and that's bound to us by life. It's great to get there but it would be nice to get there in time! ! Lovely, wise thoughts, very concisely expressed Dee. xx jim (Report) Reply

    So true Dee, I always say if you don't love yourself how then can you possibly give love to anyone else. Certainly we must keep all negative forces at bay and surround ourselves with positive energy. It does take time, but it truly can be done. This is a wonderful poem Dee, Thankyou.---Melvina--- (Report) Reply

    perhaps more easily with a supportive cast and scriptwriter, critic, and friend to offer positive suggestions (Report) Reply

    Hi Dee, This is a great poem, I believe the same way. I think confidence in yourself protrays who you are, but sometimes I think it is hard to be confident. I believe it's also your environment and circumstances of how one was brought up. It is hard to accept yourself if you were put down constantly. Excellent poem Dee. (Report) Reply
