Anybody out there,
I’m sending this letter out into the world, into the tangled web of anonymity with the hopes that someone sees it and that someone cares. Now before you start worrying about me, don’t. Because that isn’t my intention; to worry people. I just want someplace where I can lay out my feelings and my thoughts and people will want to hear them. And at least here – if people don’t want to – I’m saved from the embarrassment of looking alone. After all, no one here knows me.
Now, my life isn’t hard by any stretch of the imagination and it’s just plain ignorant of me to complain. But sometimes I just feel like life has lost its joy. But the main issue is, when I’m feeling down about something; I don’t know who to talk to and that’s what really hurts.
I fought with my father tonight, which resulted in an abundance of tears, as we never fight and I hate to disappoint him. Now I know the fight isn’t a big deal and it will be resolved and everything will be fine. Yet in those moments of sheer teenage angst when I needed a shoulder to cry on, all of a sudden I felt lost.
All of the friends I have are either too busy, have their own problems, are bored with me or just straight up don’t care. Which is fine, if it weren’t for the fact that I’m always there for them.
So I thought maybe; if I tell you, dear reader, you might care. You might know how I feel, you might understand. And that in itself is comforting. To think that some faceless, nameless person is reading my words and nodding. Because if we’re all lonely; then we’re all together in that.
