What I Know To Be True

By Ariele Taylor, TIWP Women’s Program
We all need to be loved.
We all need to be seen
even if just by one person
and feel their acceptance of us.
What I know is
we need to dare
to love other people.
But we can’t do it
until we love ourselves.
What’s true is that others love us
when we love ourselves.
I am strong.
I can.
I am allowed.
I love.
I deserve.
I need.
I matter.
I can validate myself.
