Letters I never Send
This is a lovely therapeutic one. I’ve done it loads of times without even realising it was called something and better still, had a purpose.
It does exactly as it says on the tin; write letters but don’t send them.
Or to be more exact and 21
century, write emails, blog posts or Facebook replies. I have written tomes,
of words and deleted them all without sending any.
Well, for a couple of reasons.
The first one mainly is because once it’s written and I read over it, I always think
jesus, I can’t send that!
I am afraid I will upset or offend someone if I’ve been too honest or too contrary and so I delete the message.
But I feel great. It’s very therapeutic. I’ve gotten a grievance off my chest and no matter that it was sent to cyber space; it’s achieved its purpose.
Try it sometime.
You can write it out longhand and then rip it up afterwards. All that aggressive shredding.
Or if you’re of a mind to, set it on fire. Burn the shit out of it. Set fire to your anger, hurt or upset and then rid yourself of it in a cleansing fire ritual.
Take the 21
century approach and type it all up on Microsoft Word, highlight it and hit the delete button.
This is the way I do it but I have to admit it doesn’t sound half as satisfying as lighting a fire.
I might try that next time.
