    Very good blog post about an Open Apology to myself. I would stop being so negative about myself and stop second guessing all my decisions! I need to feel more confident and it is good to not be co-dependent on others to the point of having them solve all our problems. I take my concerns to God and have him help me solve my problems. Prayer really works.

    I would tell myself to not worry about what other people think of me and to just do what I want to do.

  3. This is such a great activity to do for yourself. I should do this activity.

  4. Wow! I’m humbled by your honesty and I don’t think I’ve ever done a Dear Self letter. If I were, I think I would tell myself all the blessings in my life. All the good, and let the bad stay far away.

  5. I’ve never been very good about focusing on myself… I suppose that would be be the first subject of my Dear Self letter – it’s OK to reflect on yourself without feeling selfish or guilty. That would be quite the accomplishment for me!

  6. Yours is a very moving story and good advice. I would tell myself to love myself first and never live for love.

    I think this is such a great idea. I would say to not be so hard on myself.

    Reading this blog post makes me want to write my own Dear self letter. I think I would tell myself to not overthink of the decisions I’ve made and that things will soon fall into place. I would also tell myself to be grateful for the family and friends I have around me, they’re some of the most understanding and supportive people I’ve ever met.

  9. Very powerful post. I have so many regrets and this letter really helps us go through them

  10. Love your honesty <3

  11. You cant continue to drag somethings along in you life like baggage . Sometimes you need to say okay I screwed up but Im sorry and apologize to yourself and be free of the baggage

  12. Heidi Bee says:

    This is such an amazing idea, we are all way too hard on ourselves. Our mistakes are what makes us strong!

  13. Sherry Compton says:

    Often it is hardest to forgive ourselves and to apologize to us for the mistakes. I know I would make changes with the way I raised my kids. Battles seem like less of a big deal now as do messes. Your letters are touching, just like this idea.

  14. Becky Richardson says:

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this.

  15. Dana Matthews says:

    Love that Tyler Ward quote! Very true. Acceptance is key.

    When I was a teenager in depressed I learned though a psychiatrist to write letters on how I was feeling and then rip it up. I am now 40 years old and I forgot about that until reading this post. Your letters touched me

  17. What a great way to work through feelings and to try to bring some inspiration to yourself! I have written letters to my future self, but never any to my past self. What a great exercise in self love!

  18. Wise words to your self. Looking back I don’t have many regrets. My choices made me who I am today.

  19. I guess the first part of my self-letter would be to apologize to myself for putting myself in the back of the line in about every category I can think of.

    I don’t know I would have to think about it for awhile

  21. I love how honest this letter was. Thank you for sharing it with us all. It was beautifully written. You’ve inspired me to write one to myself as well. I’m not sure what I would say.

  22. This sounds like a good exercise for everyone to do. I love how candid you are. Thank you for sharing!
