Hi, ‘insert name here’,
I know that you and I have been through a lot together
And I know I haven’t always been there for you
And for that I am sorry.
I’m sorry that you wake up in pain.
I’m sorry that you wake up thinking you are useless.
I’m sorry you think you are nothing.
That you don’t believe in yourself
That you think people don’t have time for you
That you don’t like the way you look
That you think all your efforts are pointless
That you don’t like your body either
That you care what people think, even though you say you don’t
And that you gained so much weight
I’m sorry you have to do things you don’t want to
And that you would much rather stay in bed and not talk to the world for a while
And I’m sorry that you have to walk around pretending you’re okay
I know you wish you could cry more
But your tears just don’t seem to want to come
I’m sorry that you feel numb.
