We often feel the need to apologize to other people when we have done them an injustice, but we never extend the same courtesy to ourselves. I OWE ME AN APOLOGY! I owe me an apology for the emotional abuse I’ve allowed me to suffer. I owe me an apology for believing in someone more than I did me. I owe me an apology for not listening to me. I owe me an apology for ignoring my needs. I owe me an apology for hurting my feelings by sometimes not wanting to be me. I owe me an apology for denying my body nourishment as I overwhelmed my mind with mental anguish. I owe me an apology for the embarrassment I have caused myself. I apologize for all these wrongs I have inflicted on me and ask myself to recognize my shortcomings. To understand and forgive me for the long suffering and pain. I never meant to let me hurt. I APOLOGIZE.
