Even When, No Matter What

Note:  I did not write this.  I got it in my email from Dharma Comics.  ( http://www.dharmacomics.com ).  I just thought it was something that we often don’t do.  Or, often we love the egos false idea of ourselves, not the real self that lives deep within.  I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Even When
No Matter What

Let yourself be loved.

Even when you can’t imagine why, let yourself be loved.
Even when you’re completely lost, let yourself be loved.

Even when you’ve been a jerk, let yourself be loved.
Even when everyone else seems to be doing more or better, let yourself be loved.

Let yourself be loved.
Even when you’re excited or proud, let yourself be loved.
Or when your inner critic hates you, let yourself be loved.
Even while you’re hoping, let yourself be loved.
Or giving up hope, let yourself be loved.
Even when people tell you all the reasons you’re wrong, let yourself be loved.
Even when your heart is breaking, let yourself be loved.

Let yourself be loved.
Even when you’re terrified, let yourself be loved.
Even when you feel left out or left behind, let yourself be loved.

Even when you’re not saving the planet, or even really trying, let yourself be loved.
Even when you’re the only one there to do the loving, let yourself be loved.

Let yourself be loved.
Even when you made a mistake, let yourself be loved.
Or when you do that thing you always do, let yourself be loved.
When you feel selfish, resentful, mean, or angry, let yourself be loved.
Even when shame tries to kill you, let yourself be loved.
Or when it hurts so much you can barely stand it, let yourself be loved.

Even when no matter what, let yourself be loved.
Even when NO MATTER WHAT, let yourself be loved.

  1. This is a beautiful and very relatable poem. I believe we are always loved by a divine power of goodness and light. But sometimes we don’t feel that love and need to be careful not to accept the twisted love that is not good for us. That’s why I really like this line: “Even when you’re the only one there to do the loving, let yourself be loved.”

    • Totally agree with you. The whole poem resonated with me, and I knew it would with many people.

      Btw, on FB I shared a story about scientists finding new tortoise hatchlings in the Galapagos. I thought it would be a great story for your awesome Tuesday stories. I think we are friends on FB do you could find it on my page. But if you need me to, I think I can share it with you. It’s such s great story!!
