Promises To Daria

Dear Daria,

I promise to respect, admire, and appreciate you for how you act, as well as for the person you wish to become.

I promise to support and protect your freedom. Although our lives have intertwined, I will still treat your choices as yours alone.

I promise to seek a deep understanding of your wishes, your desires, you fears, and your dreams.

I promise to always strive to meet your needs, not out of obligation, but because it delights me to see you happy.

I promise I will appear for you when you need me, whenever you need me.

I promise to nurture your goals and ambitions, to support you through misfortune and celebrate your triumphs.

I promise to keep our lives exciting, adventurous, and full of passion.

I promise to persevere when times get tough, knowing that any challenges we might face, we will conquer together.

I promise to treat you with compassion over fairness, because we act as a team, now and for always.

I promise to show you every day that I know exactly how lucky I feel to have you in my life.

I promise to correct my course if you ever feel that I have not lived up to any of these promises.
