1,000 Love, You Letters started as an open invitation- initiated by Atlanta based publisher Urban Ivy- to women and girls around the world to write letters to themselves to share openly. We created this space to give life to their words.
There was a time you felt so lost. You didnt know where your life was going, what you were doing. Your only goal was to get through the day. When you laughed just for the sake of it. Today i want to apologise to you.
I know you've done your best. I'm sorry i didn't value you enough. I'm sorry i mistreated you. I'm sorry i let you feel small. I'm sorry i let you work so hard. It must have been so hard when i didnt let you cry even when you wanted to, when it hurt so much but you stopped your breath to hold your tears, when you clutched your chest to hold the pain, when you chanted its okay to yourself everytime you wanted to scream in pain. I promise to never put you through that again. We got over it and got better. We aren't perfect yet, but getting better everyday. Thank you for being so strong. Thank you for surviving.
You have taught me to love myself more, and to not give up on myself. I'm so proud of all that you have achieved. Always keep the dreams alive and take your own time to make them come true.
