#99: I Will Take Better Care Of You (Jen S.)

#99: I Will Take Better Care Of You (Jen S.)

Dear You,

We’ve been together since day one. We’ve shared the ups and downs and highs and lows. We’ve cried together, laughed together, loved together, and experienced great loss together. You’ve been my constant. But I am losing you more and more everyday, and I know it’s my fault. 

I started caring about what others thought of you and started to believe it too. I said you weren’t good enough. If only you were more confident, a perfect mother, a better friend, a more loving wife, or lost more weight, then maybe I wouldn’t be so ashamed of you. I felt the pressure to conform and became embarrassed of you. I didn’t say that I thought that you were smart, strong, and powerful. I didn’t tell you that you are kind, empathetic, and loyal. I stopped seeing the good in you. I even said that I didn’t I love you. 

I’m so sorry for the hurt that I’ve caused you. You didn’t deserve that, especially not from me. I need you to know that YOU ARE ENOUGH. I want to do my best to be kinder to you and to let you know that you are wonderful just the way that you are. Life gets tough and there will be lows, but we will get through them together because you’re stronger than I ever imagined you could be. I will stop caring about what others think about you because I know the real you, and I will fight to protect you. I will remind you that you deserve good things. I will try harder to live in the moment with you and to enjoy the now. I will encourage you to worry less. I will let you know that I’m proud of you. I will take better care of you. 

Love,
You
