This letter is about doing the right thing for me and apologizing to me for blaming me for being raped. I believe that whenever he comes around and he asks for forgiveness, I would be able to forgive him because I’ve been able to forgive myself. This is important because it all begins with me and my own sanity.
I know what he did to me was wrong because I trusted him but it is one thing I would never ask to take back because it has taught me one of the biggest lessons in life. I have spent years feeling guilty about it, frankly, but now, I just want to forgive myself wholeheartedly and tell myself that I’m sorry for being an immature young lady.
I sincerely hope that this letter brings me a bit of comfort whenever I read it. I need to forgive myself but I don’t need him to ask for forgiveness or anything else. I also don’t want anything from him. I wanted to write down how I felt so whenever I read it, I can always remember where I’m coming from.
I still love me in every way and I am becoming a better version of the woman I currently am.
