Love letters to yourself is self-care

I recently saw an article on XONecole about how it is refreshing and therapeutic to write a love letter to yourself. It’ll hold you accountable to what love means to you, help you make decision centered around self-love, and document those feelings of love that you have for yourself.

I wanted to share my letter with you in hopes that it’ll inspire you to write one to yourself.

To: My one and only special love

From: Your forever

Song: “Differences” – Ginuwine

Baby girl,

I can’t imagine doing life without you. I don’t know what I did to deserve you but I pray that it never changes. In the past, I didn’t fight for you, live on you, or care much for you but that’s gonna change. Just watching you this year has been amazing. I appreciate you allowing me to take this wild ride with you.

No one compares to you. When you put your mind to something, there is no stopping you. Have you seen how resilient you are? I’m not sure if you ever received so many no’s as this year but you know what you did with them? You balled out still. Stayed 10 toes down and kept it moving. Flawlessly. Gracefully.

I admire your heart baby girl because it is absolutely stunning. The passion that you have to do what is right, true, fair is extraordinary! Everyday you find room in your heat for one more thing that will make a difference in the lives of others.

Yes, I know you’re thinking of all the work that you still have to do. The coping with emotions, glowing, and growing but it’s coming. Everything will work itself out in due season.

Relax and get some rest tonight. You deserve it baby girl.

Love you always,

Jelissa
