Dear past self,

You deserve so much more respect than what you have demanded of yourself and of others.

I am sorry. Please forgive me.
Thank you. I love you.

I am sorry for all the times I have let you down.
When I promised you something and didn’t do it.
When I knew you wanted to try something and we didn’t do it.
When you asked for my commitment and I didn’t give it.

When I doubted you and questioned you.
When I put you second, third and even fourth priority.
When I didn’t hesitate saving everyone else, but didn’t even bother putting your name on the list.

When I thought it was OKAY to sacrifice us, so that others may live.
When I let you down by trusting the wrong people.
When I thought it was okay to compromise on our values and our health and on our priorities- just to make other people happy.

I’m sorry that I thought we needed other people’s validation and approval on the choices we had to make.

I’m sorry.

I’m sorry for letting other people’s opinion matter more than yours.
I’m sorry for putting other people on a pedestal that was built on your shoulder.
I’m sorry for ever comparing you to somebody else.
I’m sorry for ever doubting how much brilliance you have and how much gift you have to share to the world.

Please forgive me.
