A letter to myself....

Dear Amberly,

I'm so sorry.
I haven't been faithful to you.
I've been selling myself short.
I haven't been dependable or reliable.
I haven't taken care of you.
I don't even treat you the way you should be treated, the way you deserve to be treated.
I know you're depressed. I know that you have no reason to rely on me, I continually let you down.
I love you I really do. I know you don't believe it. My actions don't prove my love for you.
I know you have thought about leaving me. I know you and I know that's not really what you want.
I want to be better for you. I know it all starts with me. If you can't love yourself than you can't truly love anyone.
I know it's going to take work, this is something that isn't going to happen overnight, nor would I really want it to.
I want you to trust me again. This is going to be our journey. You and Me. Together. It won't be easy at times but if we can learn to rely on each other and trust each other I know we can make it through.
I vow to always put you first.
I vow to love and respect you.
I love you.
~Always with you, Amberly


  1. Remember your promise to be true to yourself as you go through the rest of your days. Great letter.

  2. Day by day. It really does make a difference.

  3. I have had these same thoughts, what a great post! Welcome to the Healthy You Challenge.

  4. We subject ourselves far more to insanely intense exercise regimens, get far less sleep, rely massively on stimulants like coffee to keep us going still, and probably suffer from more social stress than before.
