The thing about love

I had so many things in my mind I wanted to say to him.  They all came to screeching halt when I opened my mouth.


“Do you love me?”

“Yes, of course, you know that.”

“I actually have a better question…do you love yourself?”

“Yes… I do.”

“OK, being that you love yourself, do you put yourself first? Doing the things you need to do for you, to make you truly happy?”

“No, not always but I should.”

“Well ya see, I love myself first and I’m going to put myself first. How good are we to one another if neither one of us puts ourselves first? If you want this to continue I need a shift to occur.”
