Affirmation Letter of the Week: "I Wish I Knew How to Talk to You"

Written by Dear Black Woman Sha

I wish I knew how to talk to you. I wish I knew what to say. I wish when I said you’re beautiful you believed me.

I wish that all our positive self talk wasn’t drowned out by the voices and looks and stares and perceptions of other people around you. I wish you only cared about how you feel about you. I wish the only looks you cared about were the ones you see in the mirror.

I wish you didn’t second guess your greatness. I wish you gave yourself credit for how far you’ve come. I wish you knew how to fill yourself up like you fill everyone else up. I wish you didn’t allow so much space for negativity. I wish your good days outweigh your bad.

I wish you were more of who you are. I want the best for you but sometimes I don’t know how to give it to you. I want you to be that happy carefree loving bubbly joyful person you truly are. I wish people could see her!

I want you to know I’m dedicated to learning how to love you better. I know sometimes I don’t get it right, but please know that I’m trying and I’ll never leave you. Please know that I’ll never give up on you. Please know that I’m always thinking about you. I’m always thinking about what more I can give you & I’m always thinking about how and where to get these things. I promise we’ll find self love confidence and true joy together.

I love you.
