I remember the first time I was told that you were not good enough for me. I was encouraged to change you into how society thought you should be. At times I put you through the most drastic tests to prove to me that you were worthy. Countless times I spoke to you with anger and hatred in my voice. I made you feel stress, exhaustion and unrelenting pain.
I want you to know that I have changed. I realize that you are the only one for me, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I now see that I have treated you so unfairly. I never listened to you, and for too many years we struggled to connect and work together as a team.
I am so incredibly sorry for all the pain I have caused. I regret wasting so much time nurturing my negative feelings. I wish that I could have seen sooner how amazing you truly are.
I am learning to love every aspect of you, even what some may see as “flaws”. I need you in my life; together we are a force to be reckoned with. I promise that I will never take you for granted again. You look different now, more confident… happy. I will continue to work on our communication and I am grateful for what we have experienced together. I admire your strength and your resilience.
I look forward to all of the years ahead that we can be together. Thank you for being patient with me and for giving me a second chance. I love you.
The Rest of You
