A letter to myself
I am sorry for my lack of confidence, which haunted me for years.
I am sorry for my need to fit in.
The need I felt to drink, or do drugs.
I am sorry for my choice of my first husband.
I am sorry for the emotional, and physical abuse, I allowed myself to endure.
I am not sorry for my beautiful children, who resulted from that marriage.
I am not sorry I left my marriage, wanting a better life for myself and, my children
I am sorry it took me so long to leave the marriage, but if I did leave sooner, I may not have my children.
I am not sorry for wanting to set a better example for my children.
I am sorry for the lost years without my children.
They were, and are, always in my heart and thoughts.
I am sorry for the pain it caused my children being apart.
I am sorry it so long to figure out what, and who I wanted in my life.
I am sorry if my children thought I could have done more for them.
I could only do what I know.
I am a work I progress.
Most of all. I am not sorry for my life.
My choices, or my actions.
They brought me to where i am today.
