Self-esteem, respect, self-love. For 2020 this is what we want to wish you, dear readers and we do it with a beautiful poem entitled 'When I really started to love myself'.





A motivational poem capable on the one hand of making us reflect on our life, on the other of moving us. It is attributed to the unforgettable Charlie Chaplin who declaimed it on his birthday, but in reality the poem is of Kim e Alison Mcmillen, but it was reworked by the comedian and went down in history as his.

The result, however, does not change because the beauty of these sentences is indisputable. We often forget to love each other, we dwell on feelings of guilt, on recriminations, on hatred, on resentment and we never try to understand what our heart wants.

This is why we must begin to truly love each other, to never feel out of place, to learn to cultivate our self-esteem, to understand that pain and suffering are part of everyday life.
On this budget day, don't be too hard on yourself, look to the future with optimism and take two minutes to read this beautiful poem.

When I really started loving myself

When I started to really love myself, I realized that I was always and on every occasion in the right place at the right time and that everything that happens is fine. Since then I have been able to rest assured. Today I know this is called ... Self-esteem.

As I began to truly love myself, I realized that emotional suffering and pain are just a warning telling me not to live against my truth. Today I know this is called ... Authenticity.

When I began to truly love myself, I stopped longing for another life and I realized that everything around me is an invitation to grow. Today I know this is called ... Maturity.



When I began to really love myself, I realized how embarrassing it is to have wanted to impose my wishes on someone, even knowing that the times were not ripe and the person was not ready,
even if that person was me. Today I know this is called ... Respect.

When I started to really love myself, I got rid of everything that was not doing me good: food, people, things, situations and everything that pulled me down and away from myself, at first I called it "healthy selfishness ", But today I know this is ... Love of self.

When I started to really love myself, I stopped depriving myself of my free time
and to conceive grandiose projects for the future. Today I only do what brings me joy and fun, what I love and what makes me laugh, in my own way and at my own pace. Today I know this is called ... Simplicity.

When I started to really love myself, I stopped wanting to always be right. And so I made fewer mistakes. Today I realized that this is called ... Humility.

When I began to truly love myself, I refused to live in the past and worry about my future. Now I live more in the present moment, where everything has a place. It is my condition of daily life and I call it ... Fullness.



When I began to truly love and love myself, I realized that my Thought can
make me miserable and sick. But when I learned to make it dialogue with my heart,
the intellect has become my best ally. Today I know this is called ... Knowing how to live!
