Today we are supposed to write an unsent letter to someone who wronged us, expressing our emotions and releasing the emotions. However, as I was journalling, I started writing a letter to myself. I expressed deep regret that I put so much pressure on myself. I apologised for not being there for myself, for letting others treat me badly, for making myself a door mat, for putting so much pressure. I told myself that I'm deeply sorry and that it will change now. I've got you now. I will look after you and that myself can rest and recover and heal. I found this exercise very therapeutic. More so than writing another rant to someone who wouldn't care about how I felt. I'm planning to write letters from everyone who wronged me, deeply apologising and regretting their behaviour. The way I see it, if my subconscious can't differentiate between real and perceived threat, may be it will not differentiate between real and perceived apology and heal itself? Any thoughts?
