Love Letters

I don't think I could ever express to you how thankful I am. You literally saved my life. Okay, maybe not "literally" but it sure felt like it. It wasn't the "save you from a burning building" kind of life saving. It was more like saving me from my depression. Saving me from the thoughts I had every single night. From the feeling that I would never be good enough for any one. Before you came into my life, it was rough. I've struggled with anxiety and depression ever since I was 14. I've battled drug use, bulimia and a toxic relationship. Those things destroyed me mentally. But one day, you came into my life. You made feel better than I ever have. Just when I thought I'd never find a decent man to treat me right you walked into my life and changed everything. You made me feel beautiful in...

We met at the beach, but there was something more to us. You headed back to your home state and so did I. We stayed in touched and always texted and kept up with eachother on social media. There was gradual flirting here and there, but we both knew it couldn't work. We stayed in touch and we grew closer and closer. You were there when nobody else was. A year came and we were still friends. I was torn. After all this time of getting to know each other's hopes, dreams, and life goals we grew closer than ever. You asked me to be yours, and I wanted to so badly, but I had to say no. It definitely wasn't because I didn't want to be yours, but I just knew the reality of the situation. We were 400 miles apart.. Although our texting and contact with each...

I admit it, I hated you at first because of jealousy (everyone has it with someone) But now, when I think about it, I wish you the best of luck with whom I didn't belong with.. It's been about four years since we cut it off, me and him. I can still remember everything about him. His favorite cologne, the way his eyes would sparkle, the way he laughed, how great he was around kids, his favorite late night snacks, and I knew exactly how hot he liked his showers and how crispy his bacon should be. He was the guy who showed me what I know about hunting and who made me love even just the thought of going fishing. He was the guy who enjoyed being around my family, the one who would help my mom out without even asking. He was the man I thought I would be with for the rest of my life. Those...

This time last year I remember smiling every time my phone went of because there was just something about you that had an effect on me that I never felt before. I remember when I would pass you in the hallway and you would say "there's my girl" and I wouldn't feel butterflies my whole body would tingle as if it was on fire. But, in the end we were both dumb kids and you found something about me (something that I still don't know) that you didn't like. So you left. Just like that, the messages, the pictures, the smiles were gone. It ate me alive for the longest time that someone who swore they cared for me so much could just leave me like that. But I realized that maybe in a years time maybe two, you and I might be perfect for each other again. Until then, you're just the right one...

Dear boyfriend, I just want to let you know how thankful I am of you. Every time I come home at midnight after a long hard day of school and work seeing you sleeping there is the best feeling in the world. There's so many little things you do; every time you smile, how you look at me, even the time when you annoy me I know that you are something I am truly blessed with. I really sit back and think to myself "How did I ever become so lucky?" There are millions of people out there in this world, but you just so happen to be my lucky number. I am so thankful for everything you do for me, all the kind small acts you do. I want to let you know they do not go unnoticed. Thank you for always making me smile even when I am being a pain in the @#$. Thank you for the kind words you tell me that...

It took me seven years to finally see how lucky we are. How God works in the most unexpected ways. That eight years ago in are sophomore year geometry class when you came over and said only two words to me my life would change forever. It was a whole year before I would even let you talk to me. October 2008 is when I finally let you in. By the new year you were asking me to be your girlfriend and like any seventeen year old girl. I obviously said yes. Over the next five years we experianced a lot of big moments together birthdays, graduations, college, our first apartment. Our relationship was tested again and again. In the sixth year we thought it might be the end but something in both of us told us to hang on. In the seventh year we realized we never wanted to be...

I remember it like it was yesterday, 3am laying in bed because I had that feeling, you know the feeling you get when you know something is wrong but you can't figure out what it is. Luckily for me I got the call at exactly 3:24am. "Something's happened, you need to get here." Instantly my heart drops, what happened? What do I do? So I rush out of bed, put on a pair of leggings and a sweatshirt and rush to the hospital. When I got there there it was mass confusion, just as you would imagine a typical Emergency Room would be. I walked to the front desk and told them my name and they tell me they already brought you to a room, so we walked down a maze of hallways to finally get to your room. You don't look good, I've never seen you so weak and lifeless. They tell me you crashed your...

It's not too late. I know you think that we're over. I know you want to be honorable. I know that you are loyal, but just this once, please don't do it. Don't let us die. We have a future. You don't find what we have every day. We are a rarity. We deserve forever. Come back. Come back to me. I love you. I love you always.

To my second love, the one that really matters in this book of mine, I want to thank you. There are so many things that the first love gets credit for, but you deserve some recognition, too. You made me believe in love again after my heart was crushed into a million tiny pieces. You made me laugh again. You made me stop believing that all guys treated girls badly because of how you cared for me. For that, I am eternally grateful for you. I know it wasn't easy. I know I'm hard to love. But you did it. You pushed through the walls I used to protect myself because I had been hurt so badly before. You were patient, caring, understanding, and protective every minute of every day. You brought me so much happiness that I never thought I would feel again. For everything you thought went...

To be honest, I’m not sure why I’m writing this. Maybe a confession? Maybe to just get things off my mind? Although the reason escapes me for the time being I feel the need to say it nonetheless. I can’t recall a time I’ve had to turn to others for help. I tended to be the “strong, emotionally distant” type who thought he could conquer the world without letting anybody in; then after many years when I was finally ready to let somebody in I was reduced to rubble in the blink of an eye when that person made the choice to leave my life. I didn’t know how to handle the situation, or even myself at that point. Emotions flooded through me like they never had before, but then you somehow managed to make it all okay. The funny thing is I don’t even think you realize that you’re the reason I...
