I don’t really know where I’m going with this.
I write letters to myself in a composition book, between one and three letters a day. I’m not sure why I did this, but it helps, I suppose. I carry it around with me, so when I have an idea, or if I get frustrated, I can write to myself. I’ve always considered myself a bit of a writer.
I write letters to one of my exboyfriends, letters he’ll never see. I write to him when I’m trapped in my depression. Why? Because my depression is what ended our relationship. I write to him when I’m angry, because he could always calm me down, make me laugh, and help me to realize that it isn’t worth it.
I write letters all the time, because I feel like writing helps, and believing that, I also believe it helps to write to someone. When my uncle died, I wrote a letter to him, and people thought I was crazy. But it gave me closure.
I guess what I’m saying is, this site is wonderful, because even if a person only reads the letters, and doesn’t publish one of their own, it helps. Having wondered what other people think about, it gives insight.
On a side note, sometimes it is better to actually send the letter you write. Maybe the person you are writing to needs to see your letter, and know for sure it is for them.
