I joined a group on Facebook called The Self-Love & Wellness Lounge so that I could take part in their October Writing Circle. Everyday there will be a new prompt posted in the group and we’re to write honestly and openly – no editing, no thinking, just writing.
I’ve decided that I’m going to set this as a 31 day blogging challenge for myself. I want to become a better writer, stop overthinking posts and be more consistent. I have no idea what these prompts will be but if I feel like it’s too personal, I won’t publish.
Today’s Prompt – My First Love
My first love should have been myself, not the person who broke me.
That’s the thing with love though I guess, it’s not something you plan or have control over, its something that just happens and there’s really no fighting it. I tried, believe me I tried, but I fought for the wrong person, I fought for him.
I should have been fighting for myself, for my sanity, my happiness, not for someone to love me back. You should never have to fight for anyone to love you but yourself.
Learning to love myself has taken time but I’m there now, the first 25 years of my life have been a lesson that I won’t ever forget but I’ve closed that chapter and started a new. My first love of this new chapter? You guessed it, me, myself and I cos like Bey said, that’s all I’ve got in the end ♥
