Valuable Others & Me

Post by Chrystal Oaks » 09 Jan 2019, 17:10

To love, to be loved.
To respect, to be respected.
To be kind, to accept kindness.
To show mercy, to receive mercy.
To understand, to be understood.
To validate, to be validated.
To accept, to be accepted.
To be considerate, to be considered.
To care, to be cared.
To value, to be valued.
Valuable others, valuable me.

Such a simple and sweet poem! Nothing complicated, nothing over the top. Easily readable and makes sense if read till the end. Good job!

Thank you for your kind words. I wrote this poem when I needed some hope in how we should treat others and vice versa, as well as ourselves. :romance-heartsfade:

I think it's very inspiring, actually. Something to keep in mind on bad days, like a secret weapon against negativity. :D
