Self preservation- preservation of oneself from destruction or harm

According to Mr. Webster I go against instinct and look right in the face of destruction and scoff. Some call this bravery and others call it stupidity. Either way I’m emotionally tormenting myself. Not only am I harming myself but I’m harming myself happily. I have no self preservation.

If I had any self preservation I wouldn’t have shown up that day.
If I had any self preservation I wouldn’t have worn the pretty blouse.
If I had any self preservation I wouldn’t have been so happy to see him.
If I had any self preservation I would have ignored him ignoring me.
If I had any self preservation I would stop torturing myself with hope.

This is about anyone who has every ripped themselves to peices over anything. This is about anyone who got burned and knew it was by no other fault than their own. If you have done this, I hope you heal.
