When you can’t love yourself

Sometimes you wake up and you can’t love your breath
Sometimes you go to bed and you can’t seem to rest
They tell you you’re the best and all you hear is you’re a mess

You buy the book on meditation and the breathing causes you frustration
You call yourself names they used to call…
