• Just another letter to nobody, or maybe everybody

    Does anyone else find theirselves on here all the time? I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve wasted reading and writing letters. It’s nice to feel like I can really vent out my problems somewhere though. Even not knowing if anyone will read them, and the chance that who I actually want to tell these things to will read them. It’s just nice to be able to say the things you wish you could. Somewhat publicly but still safe from judgement and possible consequences.

    It’s also nice to have people to relate to. We aren’t alone in this world. Sometimes it sure feels like it. But when I’m feeling down, this website reminds me that when I don’t have anywhere else to go its here for me to vent. People may read and Peple may not. People might be moved or feel less alone from a letter. It’s amazing how much power some anonymous words can really have.

      I know I certainly do. I read just about every letter that passes through this site, and have written quite a few myself, mostly in moments of impulsive emotion, seeking an outlet before one is forced through my chest. It’s always nice to have people acknowledge a letter and leave support, particularly when support in the real world is hard to come by. I don’t always comment on letters, but I always empathize with them, whether expressed or not.

      Keep writing. It is indeed a great medicine for the heart and mind. 🙂

      I come to this website nearly everyday. For me, it’s like the therapist I can’t afford. I can write whatever I’m feeling, purge everything out into the little white square it provides, and send it off. Like you said, people might read it and they might not, but just being able to type it all out and know that someone might relate and feel better is immensely more satisfying and calming than anything else I have found. God Bless 🙂
