Don't Forget to Love Yourself

The guy seated next to me on the jeepney had a tattoo on his right arm that said "Don't forget to love yourself." And though tattoos are not my thing, I found it cool that he chose to have this message inked, a reminder that he could easily see, especially at times when he doesn't feel too great about himself (happens to every one of us).

As I alighted off the ride, I quickly told him: "You have a great tattoo, Sir." Guess he was kind of shocked, probably because he didn't expect someone would tell him something like that, or that someone would tell him anything at all. Guess he could have also been keeping alert, in case I do something shady (which is what I would also do given that a stranger just spoke something to me).

But I hope the compliment got through him after his initial reaction. And yes, may we be all reminded: "Don't forget to love yourself."
