me

I’m sorry I’ve been ashamed of you and belittled you and made you feel worthless

I’m sorry I treat you like an afterthought sometimes and that you are not the one I think of first and you should be

I’m sorry you believe me when I say how ugly you are and how you’re not worthy of what you want

I’m sorry I make you feel you have to be perfect and that you need to be┬ásomething you’re not

I’m sorry I can’t get past feeling like I want to be different or that somehow that would make me a better person

I’m sorry for not listening when you talk to me

I’m sorry for shutting your memories and secrets into boxes because you’re scared to remember

I’m sorry you’ve suffered

I’m trying to make it better
