Letters I never sent

Dear Mum

If I knew you were going to die so young I would have payed more attention to you when you needed me. I wish I appreciated you more, and relished your individualism. I only get this about you now I’m older.  I wish I sat down with you and asked you “What should I do if you die?”

I should have taken your opinions more seriously. Instead, my immaturity just brushed you off. I should have hugged you more and told you every single day how much I loved you.

Thank you for being a good mother to me. Thank you for providing everything a child could possibly want and need. Thank you for encouraging me to pursue my passion for creating artwork and expressing myself with confidence. Thank you for loving my father and my brothers.

I miss you. I love you, I wish you could see your grandchildren.

Your daughter xo

 

Dear Friend

I am no longer angry with you. Anger only leads to misery. Thank you for the great things that you taught me. Thank you for sharing personal things about yourself and that you trusted me. When all is said and done, true friendships are your best possession. If a friendship doesn’t last through the toughest of things, then it was never meant to be. Some people are never suppose to be together. It’s sad that we were not able to work through our differences.

I miss you, and I hope you are happy.

Me.

 

Dear Brother

Even though we don’t see each other, I still think about you. We had such a funny childhood. We were typical kids and full of energy. You were so clever. We had wonderful times together as a family. I’m sad that we still don’t share our lives with each other.

Even though we no longer see one another that doesn’t mean that I don’t love you. I hope one day you find peace in yourself.

Love, your sister.

 

Dear work colleague

You are a miserable, self absorbed woman who is just plain mean. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only person you’ve treated meanly. I hope you wake up to yourself before it’s too late.

Thank you for teaching me the meaning of a cruel natured person. I now know what to look out for.

Goodbye, and good riddance!

Me.

 

Dear Grandma

Thank you for taking care of me and for showing me what the meaning of ‘family’ is. Thank you for showing me what a strong indendant woman is. Thank you for teaching me how to cook. You are everything to me! You will never be forgotten.

Love, your granddaughter.

 

To Whom it May Concern

If my Last Will and Testament has my signature on the base of it, then just fucking do what’s instructed you stupid idiot.

Yours Sincerely
