Love letters to my loved ones


It's Wednesday afernoon as I write this, I didn't sleep until around 3:30-4:00am so i feel quite slow and slightly emotional. I've been thinking about love and how I don't want to regret not loving enough. Sometimes I feel like i have all this love to give and yet I don't release it into the world. Maybe because I'm scared of the vulnerability that comes with loving openly and abundantly. I think I'm scared of hurting my heart beyong repair because sometimes I feel I'm too emotional and I feel everything so deeply, but from now on, I'm going to try to love more openly and freely. Here are a few love letters to my loved ones:

***

Dear Nan and Bamps,

You are the most loving, caring people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. You are a constant rock in my life, offering nothing but love support and encouragement. You want what's best for me and sometimes you may not think my choices are what's best but even so, you support me every step of the way.  I cannot explain how grateful I am to have been gifted with your love and presence within my life. You have helped me in ways I never thought possible. You make me want to strive to be a better person because you remind me of my strength and potential in this world and I want to make you proud.


Dear Mum,

You won't read this because you're worried you may find something that makes you angry on my blog so you avoid it all together. Thank you for being there. I was a difficult stroppy teenager and you did your best. I am so proud of you for everything you have achieved, you've shown me that you can overcome the most difficult of demons and rise stronger than ever before. You're a wonderful role model, even if you don't feel like it sometimes.


Dear Shane,

You are my sunshine on a stormy day. you always know how to make things better and you never fail to put a smile upon my face. I can be difficult at times, irrational and bratty but your patience with me is incredible. You love and support me in everything I do. You help me achieve my goals and encourage me to push myself further out of my comfort zone. You have literally changed my life for the better and I don't think any combination of the alphabet could truly express my love for you. You are strong and intelligent and beautiful and I am so grateful to have you in my life.


Dear Azz,

We used to be so close, but now we hardly speak - maybe it's because we don't have much in common anymore. Even so, I am so proud of everything that you have achieved so far. I still love you and will look out for you the same way I have always done. You are intelligent and pure and worthy of greatness.


Dear Cory,

You helped me get through my emo years being my voice of reason. You've always been there to listen and to help me see things from a different perspective. You have a heart of gold and I want you to remember that. You are a wonderful human deserving of happiness and love.

I have longer versions of these floating within my brain - so many things to say to so many different people. I think you should express love freely, without any limits. I want to start expressing my love and gratitude towards the people I hold close to me in life because I never want to regret not loving enough

Who do you hold closest to your heart?
