    Just wondering,

    writing those letters, am I supposed to feel better?
    Cause I don’t.
    Cause somehow these letters leave you hanging there, they give you some kind of hope that the person you’re writing to might actually be reading it. Or might ever read it and there you go: a happy ending.
    Well my guess is that they won’t read it.
    So to all of you who hang hopes on these letters, don’t!
    Please, just think of them as a place where you dump your thoughts and feelings, as a shoulder you cry on, but don’t you ever expect a result.
    That would be pointless.
    And then maybe later, when you grow out of your misery, you’d stumble upon your own letter, and feel grateful for people’s changing.

    I think the best thing about these letters, is that they allow you to see how other people suffer, so you don’t feel alone anymore, you don’t feel like you’re carrying the whole world on your shoulders, but that there are plenty of others carrying it with you.

    So, yeah, you’re not alone.

      You are absolutely right. I come here all the time to have a rant about how I feel and what I think. Its an awesome site and I enjoy reading what other people have to say too as it is all very comforting. Its great to know I’m not the only person feeling this way

      Its always wonderful to read other peoples triumphs as well as losses, it helps maintain the notion that as people all walks of life go through similar things. Posting those pent up feelings I’ve had helped me realize my true self through this which is something I thought would take me much longer.

      Showing that level of compassion and empathy to another person is something quite special. Sharing that weight lessens the burden that person can shuffle through without every knowing that someone, somewhere out there is going through something similar.
