To Herself

Do Not Perform For Them

I have been like this- showcasing accomplishments to other people and coming up with stories by stringing together events of the past.

While these stories are true, my motivation is wrong.

I craved and desired attention, projecting this image of myself I’d like people to hold about me.

For what?

Does it add to my self-worth? Does praise come with love?
If not, what does?

Suppose from hereon I listen and connect with people; why will I do that?

Is it out of need or out of love?

I believe if love leads the way, the need, whatever it is, will somehow be fulfilled. But the risk is that I’ll be putting some weight on expectations.


Listen, connect.
Do it out of love..
And hold no expectations.
