A Letter To Myself + 4 Reasons Why You Should Write Too

Dear self,

First of all, I am sorry. I am sorry that you tried so desperately to fix others when your own hands are shaking. I am sorry for you to feel responsible for everyone’s wounds whilst your own is still bleeding. I am sorry for not giving you time to heal. I’m sorry for the days that you forced yourself to smile when deep down all you wanted to do was cry in sorrow but you were strong and selfless because you didn’t want anyone to worry about you. I am sorry for letting you gave all of your time to the people who don’t even give the same amount back. You have a sincere and golden heart that people took advantage off. I see you struggling to make other people happy but once you have made a mistake, they only remember the bad and not the good. I am sorry that you feel like you can’t even defend yourself because people only want to hear the things that they wanted to hear. I am sorry that there were nights where you cried yourself to sleep and no one bothered to understand why. And I am sorry for not loving you the way you deserve to be loved.

So for now on, I want you to fall so deeply in love with yourself that you forget what it felt like to be hurt by someone else. I want you to love every inch of yourself from the little frizzy hair sprouting from your gorgeous head that always annoys you, to the chubby toes you used to hate because it looked ugly whenever you wear peep-toe heels. I want you to love the bags and creases you get under your eyes whenever you smile. I want you to love your body that you feel very insecure about. I want you to love the way you live and the way you exist. Don’t listen to whatever people say about how you were raised because you were raised to love yourself first. You do not need anyone’s approval or love to justify how you should live your own life.

Why You Should Write A Letter To Yourself Too

  1. It’s perfectly healthy to show self-love! It’s actually a great idea. Showing yourself love helps with your confidence.
  2. Sometimes you need to be reminded and to acknowledge what it is about you that makes you great and worthy so you’ll know what you deserve in the future.
  3. When you acknowledge your strengths, you also take note of your weaknesses! Once you are more aware, you have a few things you can now improve! There’s nothing wrong with acknowledging your weaknesses and trying to better them.
  4. In a world of narcissism and self-absorption, it is important to look way passed the physical, looking deeper into who YOU are what you’re really made up of.
