The word love is in quotes because the letter is hardly about love. I’m referring to a letter I wrote to a woman (or rather I letter I wrote in my journal, addressed to a woman) I was dating at the time. At the time, I thought I would transcribe it to a loose sheet of paper and give it to her, but that never happened. So the thoughts and frustrations and joys I had in my life coming from my relationship with her are all contained in this 2-page journal entry.
Why am I telling you this? Well, yesterday I began the process of typing the letter into a blog post. I got about halfway through and thought, “What’s the point?” I don’t know if anyone out there needs to read this, much less wants to read it. Not only that, as I read it over, I was kind of a jerk! I’m not saying some of my frustration wasn’t valid, but it was NOT a love letter. More of a break-up letter, if anything.
To sum up our relationship, it was really good. But she didn’t want to date me. I know that happens every day but the frustrating part was that she had recently dated a guy that didn’t treat her well, and she broke up with him multiple times. I didn’t understand why he got so many chances, and she wouldn’t give me even a single chance.
Here I go getting frazzled again!! If you want to find out what was in the letter I never sent, comment below and I’ll write it out, and post it in a future blog. I am willing to put myself out there because surely I come across as a little bit of a jerk. But now you can’t say that because I already did 🙂
Do you have any letters you never sent to a former significant other? Comment below and also let me know if you want to know more about my letter.
Thanks for stopping by!
