Sometimes we are our own worst enemy. And sometimes we forget to take be grateful when it comes to ourselves and our body. That’s why I wrote this love letter to myself.
I’m sorry for putting you down so much.
How can I make myself grateful, for the two legs you gave me to walk through my journey called life?
For the nose you gave me, to smell the roses. The lungs you gave me, to breathe and carry on to see more beautiful days.
For the eyes you gave me, to see the world from different perspectives, and to recognize the hues of light. Because of you, I can happily say, my favorite color is blue.
For the voice and mouth you gave me, to be able to be heard.
For the lips you gave me, to be able to kiss, and show someone I love them.
You don’t look bad today. You aren’t lazy. You aren’t stupid. Your hair looks beautiful. That outfit looks sexy as fuck!
You are me. so of course you are great!
Dear me, I know it sounds silly for me to say all of this.
You don’t deserve the negative thoughts I give to you. After everything you do for me, it is indeed an act of disrespect. Going behind my own back and saying those terrible things about me.
It gets lonely sometimes, but it’s good to have you by my side. I guess I take advantage of the fact that you will always be there for me.
But will you?
Will you always be there for me?
I have to act now, before it is too late, as time is short, and tomorrow is not promised.
I’d like to spend more time with you.
I promise to appreciate you more. To love you more, to take better care of you.
Because you are home.
So dear me,
Take this as an oath. We will go on this journey of so called life, together, and make it through. Stronger.
Rest assured, you are strong, beautiful, kind, smart, and more.
