It Took Me 36 Years

To love myself
To value myself
To be comfortable with myself
To appreciate myself
To respect myself
To learn myself
To be gentle with myself
To listen to my own heart
To speak my own mind
To trust my inner voice
To claim my innate wisdom
To open up about who I really am
To challenge my own misconceptions about who I am
To cultivate who I am
To articulate who I want to be
To be okay with my right now self
To strive for the self I see
To give myself the benefit of the doubt
To look myself in the eye
To recognize that I am not a mistake
To not back down from myself
To not back away from myself
To own me
