Dear Me, I Am Sorry For Giving Up On You When I Should’ve Loved You With All My Heart


Dear me,

I am so proud of you. I know that life hasn’t been always easy for you, and I am sorry. But even though you have experienced many, many struggles – you always managed to keep your head high and never give up fighting for yourself. I admire you for that.

I am proud of everything you’ve gone through, but mostly – I am proud of the person you’ve become.

Please, don’t be so hard on yourself. And know that one day it’ll all make sense to you. Every heartache, hurt, and wound will be worth it. I know it’s a cliché when they say everything happens for a reason, but it’s a cliché because it’s true.

Therefore, take a deep breath and be patient. Because what’s yours will come to you.

More than anything, be true to yourself and never allow others to drag you down. Because people will try to use you, manipulate you, take you for granted, lie to you… Be kind to them anyway, forgive them, but leave them behind. It is true that when someone hurts you usually is not about you. Therefore, you shouldn’t take everything personally, but you shouldn’t interact with people who don’t respect you.

After all, there is a certain kind of beauty that comes from pain. A beauty that shows that you have survived. That you are a warrior and stronger than anything or anyone who has tried to push you down.

Dear me, promise me that you won’t let anyone get in the way of your dreams and goals. Promise me that you won’t waste your precious time on the wrong people. Promise me that you’ll surround yourself only with positive people who inspire you, motivate you, grow with you, and make you a better person. Those are your people.

Because you deserve everything good and beautiful. You are amazing. You are smart. You are independent. You are everything.

Don’t let anyone make you feel like you are not enough. Don’t let them steal your confidence and happiness. Because at the end of the day, all you have is yourself.

Don’t worry about immature people. Don’t get into relationships with people who are wrong for you out of loneliness. There is more to life than being in a relationship.

So, stay positive, be patient, and work on yourself and your dreams. You’ll find love. Just because you haven’t found your right person yet, that doesn’t mean that you won’t find them ever or that you are undeserving on love.

Dear self, you must completely fall in love with yourself before you fall in love with another person.

Therefore, be kind to others. Be selfless, compassionate, and caring.

You’ve endured so much. You are so strong for coming out of all the battles as a winner. Many have tried to break you, but you’ve never let them get to you. You stayed ‘you’ and thank you for that.

You have gracefully let go of the people, things, and situations that didn’t suit you. You have accepted things as they are and moved on.

Thank you. I love you.

You deserve to have everything your heart desires. Now, stand up tall and go get it!
