I Know

I know what it’s like to love and be loved
I know what it’s like to be respected
When the words from my mouth leave me
They land on ears that are dedicated to understanding me
I am not perfect but I am cherished
I am constantly thanked for my understanding
I’m going to say it again
I now know what it’s like to love and be loved
I know what it’s like to be respected
That is the most beautiful thing that could’ve happened to me

    1. Thank you! It’s also my favorite. In the past few years, I’ve realized that I don’t have to try so hard to be perfect. I’ve made mistakes and have been wrong so many times. That’s a part of the human experience. As long as we continue learning and applying what we’ve learned, we will be okay. We are also deserving of love regardless.

      1. I’ve also learned to grant the same grace to myself that I give others. It’s a journey getting used to doing that.
