4.8 Letter to myself

Monday, April 08, 2013

Dear Dee,
I know April is always hard on you. You spend half of it every year in tears, the other half in self destructive mode. This year is different. This is the year to let go of the grieving for your son. I'm not suggesting you try to forget, just try to forgive yourself and let go. You have good friends and a strong support system. Its okay to talk about it. In fact, you need to talk about it. Don't bottle it up. Its okay to grieve. Its just no longer okay to punish yourself for what you had no control over.

You are an awesome person. You are always willing to help anyone who needs it. Your life's work is important. You are a caregiver. Many say the best they've ever had. You improve yourself in some small way everyday. You are well liked and respected. You are beautiful and kind. You have become someone I would be proud to be. I love you. Sincerely, Dee.

    That must have been very difficult to write. Thank you for your bravery and the lesson that you are worth caring for no matter what tragedies we endure. You are indeed beautiful and kind. emoticon

    This was such an inspiring letter, I loved reading it and it even helped me because my Dad passed away Feb 2012 after a mess up by the hospital here, and it's so frustrating because no one wants to help because of his age, even though he was the healthiest 82 year old you could ever meet, it doesn't matter, it's the numbers that count, period. The Hospital was at fault (I mean who goes into a hospital ICU with dehydration and ends up with not one, but TWO rare diseases???) and won't even admit to it, of course if they did......sorry, I'm rambling.

    Anyway, we have to go on, and we do, from what you wrote here you are a VERY strong lady, though it may not seem like it, you are. That strength shines in this post you made and though I don't know you, I am very proud of you.

    Hold on tight to that strength and it will guide you through, never lose sight of the sunshine! emoticon

    What an AWESOME letter!!! While grieving is hard i always remember that i have a HOST of angels that watch over my EVERY step and are waiting for me... while i'm still down here, though, i must strive to continue those values and traits that each and every one of them instilled in me.

    Keep building yourself up honey!!! Caregivers are wonderful people and are sometimes underappreciated. I hope you realize how much the people that you work with do appreciate what you do for them!!!

    What better way to get back on track than to be kind to yourself. You have to love yourself first before you can make the change. Be proud of yourself for who you are and let go of things you have no control over. The past is just that.... the past. Move forward and be positive to a new you!! emoticon You are worth it!!
