I was listening to some music and thought of a Tim McGraw song. I found it on YouTube and it broke my heart all over again.
“One of These Days You’re Gonna Love Me”
Oh my God when I hear that song it just tears me up every time. I think so many people have. I think that this song really resonates with people who have a food addiction. We feel unloved and, therefore, turn to food because it feels like love. At least for a moment it does. Doesn’t it? Maybe it is just to me that it does. That filling up internally of all the feelings I can’t express or that I feel no one cares about.
The beginning of the song starts out talking about all these people who have been hurt and how they are telling that person in their heads or even maybe verbally that one of these days they’ll love them. But at the end of the song, the story turns. It is now one of these days maybe I will love me. That is the kicker.
People say we can’t love others until we love ourselves. I don’t believe that is true necessarily. I don’t believe we can love completely. But I believe we can still love. But I think we love better when we truly accept and love ourselves. I love myself to an extent and I like the person I am as far as values and beliefs. I don’t like who I am physically or how that affects me mentally and sometimes emotionally. But I can still love.
