The hypocrisy of your thoughts

Remembering your own flaws
Tear yourself apart so often
When you can't even quit your ego
Out of relationships, you run

Messed up with your own insecurities
You want someone to find you perfect
Unable to eradicate your own negativities
You wish someone could ignore your defect

How can you expect love from someone else
When your own life is on the broken shelf?
You wonder if anybody could ever love you
When you cannot even love yourself


While you see people smoking and drinking
You think they're being so cool
Comparing to them, you think you're dumb
Unaware that they're the biggestΒ Β fools

Tired up with your own challenges
You want someone to think you're strong
Unable to even prove yourself
You wish nobody assumes you wrong

How can you expect love from someone else
When your own life is on the broken shelf?
You wonder if anybody could ever love you
When you cannot even love yourself

You see people who inspire you
You watch everything they dare
Yet you think you can't do any better
It is in you what you're looking out there

Torn up with your own failures
You want somebody to appreciate you
Unable to even accept the challenges
You wish to be daring like quite a few

How can you expect love from someone else
When your own life is on the broken shelf?
You wonder if anybody could ever love you
When you cannot even love yourself

-By Sarah Khan
We've all heard that we should treat others like we want to be treated. But perhaps, we learned the reverse? Maybe, it should say, "Treat yourself with the same love and respect you want to show others." You must check this video on how guilty our thoughts make us. We aspire that people should think we're perfect, yet we're so messed up with our insecurities. We aspire that people think we're strong, yet we don't want to take challenges. We aspire people to love us, yet we can't even love ourselves. So, charity begins at home. Remember, Kim Namjoon had once said, "You're not ugly, you're just born in a judgemental society." We must not create the hypocrisy of our thoughts and think upon our actions the way we want people to think about us and love ourselves, the way we want others to love us.
