What Do You Do When All You Have Is You?

It can be a lonely place, waiting for the ones that never showed up.

The ones that you think might have gotten away when the heat came blazing, making them back off from the fire. The ones that you thought were good enough to hold your hand and take away the pain but were too afraid to stay.

Or, to the ones that never came in the first place, walking right past and not even giving a second glance.

The ones that just noticed the surface rather than looking at the whole package, not giving it enough time to see that you were more than enough, if not better than what he deserved.

What do you do when all you want is someone to compliment you?

To add this extra amount of joy to your life. To fill this void that you can’t seem to fill with anything else other than a hand to hold and someone to call your own.

To comfort you when you are down or to simply listen when you need an ear. To have someone to give your heart to and overwhelm with your love.

To be able to give yourself away, mind, body, and soul. To know that there is someone out there living and breathing to see you each and every single day.

To feel that you are not alone in this world and are worthy of love.

What do you do when no one wants you?

When you feel like you are an outsider looking into the game of love. When you see happiness all around you and you can’t seem to wrap your head around how it is possible to find such joy.

When you see relationships forming and growing like a beautiful flower in the forest. When you see the ones that you thought would never find someone, drowning in a sea of happiness with the one that they have chosen to fall for.

When all you know is being alone and standing on your own.

What do you do when all you have is you?

When you can only depend on yourself, to pick yourself up after you fall.

What do you do when you are the only one that knows the thoughts in your head and the only one that can hear the beating of your heart?

What do you do when you have no one to reach out to but your own mind and the bravery in your own heart?

What do you do when the only reflection that you see is a single soul, reaching out for anyone to take hold, and it is just you, holding on to your own?

What do you do when you feel like you aren’t enough for anyone?

You keep your head held high. You keep yourself in the right state of mind. And you keep reminding yourself that you are enough.

The ones before weren’t for you. They were your stepping path, your learning curve. They were the ones not worthy of your beauty and your love because they wouldn’t have left if they were.

You are enough on your own. You may not see it now, but someone out there wants to be yours.

It may not be the person you had in mind, but somewhere in this world, someone is thinking about you and to them, you are enough.
