• To the person quoting my letters.

    “It’s sad really” and “You can never take it back” were my letters. They are NOT to the writers of “Pretentious” and “I don’t think we are done here”.

    So please stop referencing my letters verbatim. It sucks I should have to put myself “out there” to someone I don’t know. So here is proof positive why people should communicate in person instead of assuming letters here are for you.

    I just want to heal and vent here. Not be part of some stranger’s soap opera.

    1. I was wondering

      I was scratching my head while reading thinking I had read them previously. Wthell…many of us feel the same things but to steal someone else’s words and letters is just wrong. That sucks! Someone is definitely lacking originality.

    2. I certainly do

      lack in originality that is,considering something along these lines may have been said in an email recently sent too.
      You get all these letters floating around in your head, and you find them being regurgitated back out into your reality in moments of .. heightened emotions.

      Unrelated to the post: That’s one reason I thought I’d have been better to get away from this venue completely. Sometimes it feels like deterioration, a mind melt.

      A little over a year ago I used to have the same opinion. I’ve changed my mind, obviously. I think that posting a letter here is the same as tearing a page from a journal and sticking it up somewhere like a train station. There are bound to be people who will leave something in kind, and also those like Blue who will pigeon bomb it. While I don’t agree with people copying others’ work of any kind without acknowledgement, perhaps it might help to feel flattered someone is using your letters as a muse. Perhaps the two of you share a similar situation and youjust happen to be someone who is able to translate thoughtto word without losing the pure meaning. If this doesn’t help you feel better, then consider keeping your most meaningful stuff in a notebook where it remains only yours.
