“On this day of lovers,
Remember to love yourself,
I remember a bit (with the puppets) in Hellboy: The Golden Army about humans inherently having a hole in them that will never fill.
You need to be okay with You, before other people will. It just sounds wise.
I struggle with genuinely believing I am a good person, or just being a good enough person. I have moments of weakness where I thought the love or the persons I loved did not stay because I didn’t think I was a decent person and eventually perhaps they believed it too. For at least one of them, I’ll never actually find out. That is the hole, that is the wound.
Sometimes you forget to tell people in your life they’re meaningful, and sometimes they forget to tell you the same.
Forgive them, and forgive yourself. It is going to be difficult.
