A Promise To Me

Hello friends,

I am dedicating this post to me...The inner me, that has tried to come out for sooo long, and this is a promise to myself, to let me live and once and for all let me see me......



I promise never to cause you any more problems, but be a part of your solution.
I promise you a life of serenity, like that of still water;
never causing turbulence, but erasing all your tension's
I shall be a good listener, whenever you need to talk;
I shall be beside you, moving step by step, with your walk.

My love for you if seen in a mirror, shall be devoid of conceit or contemplation; the image shall be pure and honest, reflecting my most noble intention of giving you love, without any strings attached;
of the greatest kind of happiness, that can never be matched.

I promise to appreciate your ideas, to learn your little ways
and to adapt to your outlook on life as time passes by, with beautiful days!

I admire your strong points, your strength, your every ability; so also, I promise to accept your weaknesses, which, I feel, you haven't got any.

My heart promises to fill your life with fragrance, like that of the fresh flower with dew;
it promises to hold you within forever, for it loves you more than you ever knew.

It vows to love you more and more, to explore the wonderful person within you,
your wishes, your wants, desires and dreams whether they be more or few.

I will be there beside you, anytime that you need me;
just as I am important to myself, equally important, for me, you shall be.

You are, for me, a beautiful dream, more precious than silver or gold;
you are that star of the sky, which my eyes will always behold.

I shall wipe your tears, holding you tight in my arm;
so that none in this wicked world, can cause you any harm.

I shall never ask you to change because your self-respect is what I admire;
but I will gladly change myself, if ever so, you desire.

I shall grow with you, gradually, but promise to give you space if you so need
I will never go away, you can always call on me

I will passionately love you and will genuinely care;
it is not just your joys, but your blues, too, that I will share.

You have taught me what it is to believe and have faith,
on these grounds, then, I make a promise strong;
that with my love, nothing will ever go wrong.


Cheers to new beginnings,


  1. Wonderfully beautiful. Making promises to yourself is a great idea.

  2. Hey Irene,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. You have come a long way. Keep up the good work, you can do it! What are you doing for exercise? I'm a Beachbody Coach so if you need any help please let me know.

    All the best,

  3. calm still waters run deep, lovely post irene..

  4. Hi Irene. Yet another wonderful post. I just want to print this out and stick it above my fridge. It is so beautiful. I wish I could be this nice to myself!

    Thanks as ever for the inspiration.

    Best wishes,
    Bearfriend xx

  5. What a wonderful promise baby. Love every word of it!
    You're pretty dog gone special to me buddy.

    Love you dearly,

  6. Beautiful post, Irene! Its so important to love and respect yourself. Its what keeps us from putting all that weight back on, and turning our lives back into the darkness from which we fought so hard to get out of. You are just great!

    Lots of love!

  7. Beautiful myRene!

    You know... if you back up to that first paragraph, you're right, there is serenity in stillwater. You should just come home to it. Lol...

    Miss you bunches sweetie! Can't wait to see you.
    x's and o's

  8. Irene!!! You've got me bawling my eyes out girl!!! You just said everything to yourself that I've never been able to say to myself. How beautiful, touching, and for me...thought-provoking. Just what I needed to hear. Thank you so much Irene....truly...thank you.

  9. Great inspiration. I keep saying it, learning to work with ourselves instead of against ourselves is a crucial key.

  10. What a wonderfully written post! Very inspirational...just what I needed to read. Your awesome, keep up the good work.

  11. I love your blog and can identify with so much you say. Your progress pictures are truly inspiring. Thanks for your honesty, your recovery and reminding me about loving and respecting myself. So much of your post dedicated to yourself reminds me of a therapist telling me how important it is to "re-parent" ourselves, and love ourselves as we love our kids. If you ever have a chance, please visit my blog. I'm becoming a regular reader of yours!

  12. What a wonderful promise to yourself. I think we all need to have this promise.
