I tried to look for myself in others,

but found only pain and confusion.

So I tried to ignore it,

but everywhere I looked it was all the same.

So I closed my eyes and looked within,

and found myself instead.

I realised real change begins with me,

and my answers won’t be found looking elsewhere

but instead loving and holding myself accountable.

  1. Very powerful message, my friend! All the answers about who we are can be found within and no one else can define us, but us. Love this post.
