Poem: To love yourself is the greatest love of all (August 2020)

Writing can often be a great way to improve our mental health and wellbeing. This beautiful poem was shared by Tony, a member of one of our wellbeing workshops:

'To love yourself is the greatest love of all

It is a process, a learning curve

LIVE IN YOUR LIGHT OF HOPE, THAN IN THE IMAGE OF DARKNESS

When life frowns at me, I should smile back!

When life is hard, I should smile!

I am well, I am fine

I AM FEARLESS AND BOLD

Then I can meet challenges and life situations, difficult decisions, dealing with difficult people

It's better to face life's challenges than to run away

I am getting more confident

I am healing everyday

I am getting better everyday

I am getting stronger

SMILE, I AM HAPPY!, Say it with feeling and conviction, believe it

I SHOULD HAVE MENTAL TENACITY AND MENTAL RESILIENCE

I SHOULD SAY TO MYSELF :- I AM WONDERFUL, I AM GREAT, I AM FANTASTIC, I AM BRILLIANT, I AM EXCELLENT, I AM POSITIVE

Think it, breathe it, feel it, believe it, live it

Do not worry, other people are feeling paranoid, anxious, self conscious, worried and scared too

I should not feel guilty, bad, beat myself up, give myself a hard time

I AM NOT ALONE

I HAVE THAT CONNECTION WITH OTHER PEOPLE'
