As I Began to Love Myself 

Poem by Charlie Chaplin

As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering 
are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth.

Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.

As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody. As I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time
 was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this
 person was me.

Today I call it “RESPECT”.

I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life,
 and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow.

Today I call it “MATURITY”.

I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance,
 I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens
 at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm.

Today I call it “SELF-CONFIDENCE”.

I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, 
and I stopped designing huge projects for the future.
Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do
 and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in 
my own rhythm.

Today I call it “SIMPLICITY”.

I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for
 my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew
 me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude
 a healthy egoism.

Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF”.

I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since,
 I was wrong less of the time.

Today I discovered that is “MODESTY”.

I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worry
 about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where EVERYTHING
 is happening.

Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILLMENT”.

I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me
 and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my
 mind became a valuable ally.

Today I call this
 connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART”.

We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems
 with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing, 
new worlds are born.

Today I know THAT IS “LIFE”!
