This series was inspired by one of my favorite songs called, “Love Letters to God” by Nahko and Medicine for the People. I decided whenever I was stuck emotionally, physically, or spiritually, I would write a love letter to what was holding me back from happiness. While this first entry is mine, the series will continue with love letters from friends, family, or anyone who wants to share.
*from my journal entry*
a letter to one I’ve lost.
all I wanted was you in my life again. To pass time with your hands intertwined in mine.
I’m trying to fall in love with myself. I’m trying to be independent.
And most importantly,
I’m trying to be okay with all of this, with doing things on my own.
I’ve months thinking about how I could have fixed things, what I could have said, how I could have changed.
But I realized, this is just the way things have to be right now
Or maybe for a while, or forever,
But, I’m not thinking that far ahead. I’m trying to be okay with the situation today. I used to write love letters full of agonizing thoughts and apologies.
But now I’ve realized,
I’ve done enough. It’s time to heal.”
my whole heart and soul,
