Dear Self,

I’m so very sorry. I’m sorry I neglected you. I’m sorry I denied you. I’m sorry I placed the happiness  of others before you. I’m sorry I wasn’t there to support you. I’m sorry I tolerated standards that are so much less than what you deserve. I’m sorry I abandoned you, rejected you, and didn’t listen to you.  I’m sorry I haven’t always believed in you, trusted you and valued you. Most of all, I’m sorry I haven’t loved and accepted you above all else.

I want you to know that I have changed.  I will hold your hand through the good times and nurture you in the bad. I am committed to you and only you. I am unconditionally devoted to you and your happiness, your dreams, and your bliss. I will be there for you always. I will support and cherish you. I will adore you and praise you. I will protect you and spoil you. I will love, honor, and accept you all the days of our life.

I was a fool to take you for granted. I see now how wonderful you are, how rare, how unique. You are perfect in my eyes. You are everything to me. I remember now why I chose you above all else. Only you could give me what I truly needed. Only you could traverse this journey with me. I am so grateful to you and I love you so very much.
