Dear former self, this ones for you. I’m sorry, I truly am. I’m sorry for everything, not only for what I let others do to you but what what I did too. I’m sorry for when things went wrong I took it all out on you. I’m sorry for the mutilation of you and for the times I went too far. I’m sorry for holding onto others longer than I ever held onto you. I’m sorry for never putting you first. I’m sorry for letting you and everything that made you, you, erode away. I’m sorry for letting everyone who left take a part of you. Most of all, I am sorry for being completely incapable of loving you. Today I stand here, possibly too far from who you used to be, but I promise to preserve you till I am worthy of being you again. Love, the person you’d never be.
