What It Means To Love Someone Who Struggles With Loving Themselves

Elizabeth Tsung

The fact that it is taking me quite some time to learn how to love myself means that it’s not about to become a walk in the park for you to love me.

I have mustered every ounce of gallantry to teach myself the essence of self-love and to finally dedicate myself the chance to be loved by someone. And that is never easy. I know, I have gone far, and throughout my mission of reaching self-love, I have garnered strength along the way too. I am not as fragile as I used to be, however I want you to remember that I can still be soft on occasions.

You may give me compliments and I might find them difficult to believe, please, remind me of the very best in me anyway .

You can find the beauty amidst my flaws and I’d still see imperfections, please, consider the beauty in me anyway.

When you listen to my negative guess, you might find it difficult to handle, please, listen to them and be patient with me anyway.

Helping me be more appropriate is a process, and you might feel like it’s taking eternally, please don’t give up on me and help me anyway.

I hope you understand that in this relationship, there will be downsides. But I promise you good days .

The worst of my fears is eventually determining someone who could tame the storm that I am and then pushing them away because I do not know how to recognize compassion from deceit.

When I push you away, please stay. Remind me to talkno not just simply talk, I want us to communicate. The difference between talking and communicating is that the latter involves empathy whilst the other, the absence thereof.

Communicate to me the things you find difficult to handle. Communicate to me your feelings irrespective if they’re good or bad, I want to know. Communicate to me your thoughts, the style I communicate to you my guess. I’ll listen, I’ll understand, I’ll stay, because we’re in this together.

What we are certain of is the uncertainty of the future. I can’t assure you that tomorrow will be good when yesterday was bad.

I can’t assure you of the time it would take for me to finally learn how to fully rid myself of the self-loathing. Amidst the uncertainties of what the future holds us, this I can assure you ofI do not believe that you can’t devote what you don’t have because I may find difficulty in loving myself but never have I seen it difficult to love you.
