Self-love is something our society puts such a high price on.
Love yourself before you love anyone else.
Find happiness in yourself
Which is true, to an extent.
But I wonder, if like everything else in life,
things and people fall short of what they were
meant to be and do.
Even with all the self-love in the world,
lies the need for community. Hands upon our shoulders
in tough times, words of affirmation love and assurance.
Yet without the love and affirmation of others, the soul is like a flower that lacked in vitality.
