“I did it again,
“I hope this letter finds you in good health and spirits. I want to express the feelings that sometimes go unspoken. I am aware that my journey has been filled with mistakes, and I've caused you pain with my failed relationships and dysfunctional family situations.
“I understand that I may not be the daughter you envisioned raising, but please know that I never anticipated these challenges. Life has a way of surprising and disappointing me, much like it has for you. The hurt and embarrassment I've caused you weigh heavily on my heart, and I want you to know that I feel it deeply.
“Despite the struggles, I want to assure you that I am constantly working to lift myself from the falls. I don't seek sympathy; I understand that life must go on. Every moment you feel a certain way, please know that I've experienced that emotion threefold before it reached your awareness.
“Mom, I am not proud of the pain I've caused, but I am determined to keep moving forward. I don't want to be a burden to you, and I strive not to be a disgrace to our community. Life is a journey, and I am committed to learning from my mistakes and growing stronger.
“Your support means everything to me, and I appreciate your understanding as I navigate through life's challenges. If there's ever a need for a heart-to-heart conversation, I am here. I love you, Mom, and I am grateful for your resilience and love.
