Isn’t it true, that growing up, we were always told to “write our feelings down” instead of keeping things bottled up?
All of us have dark thoughts. We all get into the sunk-in feeling funk depression every once in a while, and while some of us let our thoughts deteriorate our soul; others, like myself, like to write our feelings out.
I find myself writing people a lot of letters. Because, I don’t have the courage to talk face-to-face sometimes. Mainly due to the scary thought of rejection or misunderstanding. Writing is a safe and free-from-hurt form of communication because interruption or arguments are unlikely to occur.
I write my letters with a purpose. Which is, to forgive myself instead of looking for forgiveness. I’ve hurt a lot people in my world and I know I am hurting people in my world. I write to the people I’ve hurt and continue on with trying to be better next time. The opposite is also true. Many people have hurt me, and many people are hurting me. I wonder, are there any letters out there addressed to me?
