22 Heartfelt Insta-Poems Remind You To ALWAYS Love YOURSELF First

Buzz, Self

Go ahead, give yourself a hug.

It's all too easy to lose track of what's really important in life. I mean, hell, we're all so preoccupied with getting by day to day, it's not hard to forget about what matters the most.

Happiness — that's the key. Without happiness, what do we really have? A boring job, boring friends, a boring life. Who the hell wants that?! No one in their right mind, that's for sure.

Once you've found happiness, don't let it go. It's not always so easy to find. But the most important step in finding happiness is finding love in yourself. Accepting yourself for who you are and believing that you can be whoever you want to be is highly important. If you're too afraid to be who you really want to be, then you'll never find true happiness.

Forget about what everyone else thinks, just be you.
