I will not fall for you all at once. No, I will fall for you gradually—falling for the little things. Or the way you reach over in your still sleep-fogged state and pull me close to you as if you cannot keep me close enough.
Or simply the way you look at me when we laugh; laughing with you is my favorite. I remember the day you asked me my top pet peeves before listing yours. You said these were your only deal breakers. They were off the wall and nothing close to what I expected, but they were yours—they were part of you—they made you who you are.
Opening up to reveal your vulnerabilities says a lot about you. I always saw the fierce uniqueness burning brightly in you, but your list illuminated that even more. I was hooked. What I so badly wanted you to see is that I am the girl who will be there for you when you need reminding how amazing you are, because life has you convinced otherwise.
The girl who will cherish any time spent with you, simply because it is a chance to be near you. I guess no answer is answer enough. I deserve to be happy… but so do you. Waiting around for something to never happen only promotes the stagnation of life, progression—it halts the future and what it has in store. It is waking up every day and making the daily choice to spend the rest of your life with them. But the most important kind of love is the kind we most often neglect: self love.
I gave that up in my desperate search for love from you, and I lost sight of who I am and what makes me happy. To wake up and remind myself that I am strong, and worthy of being loved the way I wanted to love you. Someday, I will get that kind of love from another person, someone capable of allowing me to love them. And so since I know you will never read this letter, I hope someone—somewhere is able to learn from my misgivings and at the very least, love themselves again.
I hope it as much for a stranger as I wish it for you. But I also hope that you remember being forgotten, like me, by so many potential lovers before me. Please love yourself again.You have worked so hard to get to where you are.
If you're not following your dreams then you aren't truly living and you don't truly love what you are doing. You have to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, there is still time, keep looking.
You have to figure out what it is that you want and chase it. Soon, your life will become a series of trying to get someplace else. Dont settle. Most people give up on themselves easily. They give up because they feel as though they have tried too many times and it just never works out. But you never know, the next time you try could be the time everything falls into place.
Your time here is limited so don't waste it by living someone else's life. Live your own life. Everyone has opinions on who you should be or what you should do; don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your inner voice. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. It takes courage to act.
It takes courage to start over again. Have the courage to be who you want to be. No fear. Fear kills dreams Accept where you are and the responsibility that you're going to take yourself where you want to go. It's not going to be easy- if it were easy everyone would do it. But know that you can do it. Everyday you say no to your dreams, you're pushing it back a lot farther than just a day. I may not know what your situations are like.
I may not be in any position to tell you what to do or how to live your life. But I do know that everyone gets a second chance. Even if it is tearing you to pieces, just stop and think about it. The world may seem like it is ending and there is absolutely nothing you can do You never know how strong you are until strong is the only choice you have.All Rights Reserved.

These things are annoying, sure, but hardly dealbreakers in my eyes. Aiming to be at my best constantly causes more anxiety than I can bear.
I won’t give up on you, you’re human.
I need to be able to cut myself some slack. In fact, it might cause me to screw up even worse. Instead of perfection, I strive to be kind, thoughtful, loving, supportive and true to who I am. Patience and forgiveness are a two-way street. I accept your flaws and screw ups and stand by you in rough times. I need you to believe in me.
I believe in myself wholeheartedly. Forgive my mistakes, believe I can do better and give me an opportunity to work on them. Everybody has flaws and bad habits. They are part of me, and if you love me, you have to love all of me. I want to be better for myself, but also for us.

By Lyndsie Robinson.If there is anything I learned from this relationship, is that I learned who you are on the inside, and because of it, I do not blame you for some of the things you did that caused to hurt me, I blame your past. You are a gorgeous girl that is broken on the inside.
You do admit your issues and your problems, which is a great thing. But you are not willing to put the effort to work on yourself, and therefore you resort to the easy route, which eventually results in the same vicious cycle. To be honest with you, when I started to get to know you, I started developing a passion to fix this in you because I cared so much and I still do. But as a human, a person, and my personal love towards you, I still have this passion to fix this broken piece in you.
So I ask you to allow me the chance to fix this in you as a friend. I will forever regret not trying. Let me show you who Prince really is, without expecting anything in return. You can not keep on like this, it will hurt you down the line, and you will be depressed.
There is a reason why your mom is in the place she is in today. Which is lack of fulfilment. So please understand, this is not me trying to get my way back in to your life as a boyfriend.
I am fully accepting of the idea that we can be friends, and great ones too. You can tell me anything, and I can do the same. You are too sweet and too kind, you just need to heal; and I bet my life on it that you will. I promise. I love you. Your email address will not be published.

But I don't blame you alone for any of it. I know this is my fault, too, so I don't expect you to say or do anything to fix it by yourself. I know we are trying to make a lot of screwed up things in our lives better right now, and I hope we eventually can. All I know right now is that I'm only truly happy when I'm with you. Your mere presence lights up my world. Everything I am and everything I have depends on you and your involvement.
I am sorry for the way I have mistreated you in the past. It is okay. I know you have your regrets too. I know we can be happy again if we want to work everything out, which I think we can do. You are everything to me, and I love you with all my heart. I hope I can learn to open up to you more, and let you know how I feel. I believe you will be able to recognize when something is wrong, too.
But no matter what we do or what happens, I will always love you, Baby, just like in our favorite song. You mean the world to me. Please, let's get back to the way we were. Spanish Letters.I saw the look in your eyes today when you finally realized what I had done. Your pretty mouth dropped open slightly and you were at a loss for words. You didn't need to say anything, anyway, because I saw it all in your eyes--betrayal, disillusionment, revulsion.
In that moment, I just wanted to crawl under a rock somewhere and hide. But now that I understand the gravity of what I've done, my actions have filled me with self-loathing and remorse.
It's difficult for me to look in the mirror and I'm not proud of the man I see there when I do. I have no excuse for what happened and saying "I'm sorry" hardly seems adequate. But if you could forgive me this time, I promise you this will never happen again. Both the suffering that I've caused you and the misery I feel now show me that breaking my word causes too much damage to both of us to ever want to do it again.
Whatever selfish gratification I thought I'd gain by my foolish act has disappeared like a wisp of cloud under the noonday sun.
All that remains is guilt and a stronger resolve to be not only the man you want me to be, but to be the man that I want myself to be. I know it may be difficult to believe right now, but I really do love you and have honestly never loved anyone else. In the past year, we've become so much a part of each other's lives that I really can't imagine my life without you anymore. I don't think it would benefit either one of us to give up on this relationship yet because we've both invested so much of ourselves into it already and our good times have far outnumbered the bad.
Let's Work It Out and Not Give Up • Letter Example
What few problems we've had in the past have been minor and we've been able to work through them with very little trouble. I would give anything to pick up where we left off--just doing everyday things like coming back to the apartment after work, kicking back on the couch and sharing the ups and downs of each other's day. I enjoy taking turns at being chef when we don't order pizza and appreciate your willingness to watch a game with me once in a while.
We had already started to plan our summer vacation together before this happened. Wouldn't it be great if we could still get away together for a while and try to put this behind us?
I know I'm really expecting a lot to ask you to continue making plans with me, but the alternative is too painful to even consider. Please remember all the good times we've had already, as well as all the good times that are still out there waiting for us to discover. I promise you a faithful companion who has learned his lesson and is more determined than ever to make you happy and stand by you as long as you will have him.
I know that you've gone to stay with Jan for the time being and I've given her this letter to deliver. I will call you there on Saturday afternoon and see if you would be willing to go out with me so we can have a serious talk. I can only hope I'm really sorry that things kind of got out of hand the other night. Even though we feel very differently about the importance of budgeting and putting away money for a rainy day, I don't think it's something that should get between us.
There are plenty of things that we do agree on, even when it comes to finances. I'm really glad that we see eye to eye on the importance of working hard, for example.Don't Give Up On Love (feat. New Reign)
It's more important to me that I know that with you I'll never have to worry if you'll pull your own weight when it comes to earning a living. You have such a strong work ethic even if you do spend money as fast as you earn it and that means so much to me. You know I have strong opinions about some things and express them stronger than I realize sometimesbut we rarely have disagreements like that one.
We have always talked things out in the past, and I feel bad that we left things as we did. But maybe we really did just need the time to cool off.
I think it is normal, even healthy, that we have different ideas about things--think how boring it would be if we always thought the same about everything! As they say, variety is the spice of life. We just need to remember to keep things in perspective, and not to take things too seriously.
In any case, I apologize for anything that I said that offended you. I didn't mean it. I know that you really do understand my need for financial security.
