A Letter to Myself
Carrie Michelle! What were you thinking? Don't you know the relationship you have with yourself is the most important? Don't you know that you have to take care of yourself first? Silly girl, stop trying to please all the wrong people. Stop apologizing when you have nothing to be sorry for, you do not have to explain yourself to anyone! Let other people own their own problems, you should be a system of support only.
You know yourself better than that, you've worked too hard to get to that point, don't let it slip away now! People will treat you the way you allow them to, don't compromise your self-worth, self-confidence or character for love that is unworthy of your attention.
It is ok to like yourself, especially if you would totally be friends with you! Don't say hurtful things to or about yourself, you hear yourself talk more than you hear anyone else, if you wouldn't let someone else speak to you that way why on earth would you do it to yourself?
Do what you want when you want without regard! You've always been ambitious, don't water it down for someone because it intimidates them, you know what you want, go get it. No one is going to make your dreams come true for you, that is your job.
Don't apologize for the success in your life, past or present. Remember that it is ok to celebrate the good, be happy with your personal success and be happy for other people's success too.
Forgiving someone doesn't mean you stick around to be the doormat, forgive them because that burden is too heavy to carry around with you everywhere you go. And finally, remember that it is absolutely never ok to be anyone's half-time, down-time, spare-time or sometimes. Let them go, you don't have time for that.
