I woke up this morning with this thought about self-love and relationships:
Love from others is like ocean waves,
And we, the sand.
No matter how much they love us,
How consistent, steadfast, and true:
Healthy others breath in (loving selves),
Healthy others breath out (loving us),
And so the waves ebb and flow lovingly
across the glassy pebbles of sand.
Feeling lonely? Bereft?
Longing for another’s care?
Stop with all this sandy waiting.
Be the ocean!
