Number 1

People keep telling me to look after number 1
But how can I separate you and I, when you’ve become such an important part of my life
Together we are number 1
I’ve only ever wanted to be your equal
So it hurts me deeply when you think you aren’t good enough
We make a good team,
Complementing each other’s strengths and supporting each other’s challenges
So let’s both look after number one, together you and I

Author’s notes

I believe the best relationships involve the coming together of two equals, who are able to be themselves with each other.  It begins with self love.  I’ve learned you can only truly be a good friend, or partner if you put yourself first.  Not in a selfish way, rather by remembering that you can’t pour from an empty vessel and you need to be your own best friend first.
