An Open Letter

open letter

Shared by scrabbleletters.

To the ones that I’ve hurt,
To the ones that hurt me and
To the ones that are hurting.

To the ones that I’ve hurt.
To my family, my friends, my work colleges and my ex’s I want to start off saying that I am sorry. I am sorry for what I did to you, and for what I may do in the future. I know I’ve hurt you at some point.

A comment may have fallen out of my mouth before my brain realised it said it.
A joke may have been made which you did not find funny.
I may have disappointed you.
Made you wait for me.
Told you you looked fat
Or said that I didn’t like your choice of partner.
I may have gotten angry at something that you said for no reason.
I may have overreacted.
You may have overreacted.
I may have missed your birthday,
or you missed mine.
I may have yelled at you on the street because I was wrong
Or said nasty stuff to you when you woke me up.

I am sorry. I am. But you need to be sorry too.

Not to sound too much like High School Musical, but we are all in this together. The people that are in my life are in my life because I want them to be. I need them to be. I am only human and I make mistakes. But you do to.

So next time I screw up. Please forgive me. Because you screw up to.

To the ones that hurt me.
To my family, my friends, my work colleges and my ex’s I want to say thank you. Without you I wouldn’t be here.
You taught me how to deal with heartache.
How to deal with anger and despair.
You taught me to trust my gut.
To be careful about who I let in.
You taught me to love
And how to deal with loss.
You’ve taught me the real meaning of trust,
How quickly it can be broken
and how hard it can be to fix.
You taught me what love actually means
and what it means when that breaks.
You are the one that makes me feel like I have overcome things.
You taught me to brush things off.
To not think too highly of myself,
but to also know what I am worth.
Because I am worth something.

Whether it be directly, or indirectly you have taught me these things. So thank you.
and I forgive you.

Like I said, we all screw up.

To the ones that are hurting.
To my family, my friends, my work colleges and my ex’s that are hurting. I feel for you.
We’ve all hurt before.
Some of us are still hurting
and some of us will never not hurt.
I am hurting
And it will get better
This I know.
It has to.
But in the meantime we can hurt together.
Because misery loves company.
and I couldn’t think of anyone I’d rather be miserable with.

Will you hurt with me?
