When All Else Fails, Write Her a Letter

5/18/12  I’ve decided I need to write Mary a letter and let her know what’s going on. A Facebook message will not suffice for what I’ve got to say. This deserves an old-fashioned, hand written letter.

Although I no longer have the actual letter I had written, here are the basics of what I said back on 5/18/12:

Dear Mary,
I’ve written you this letter 1,000 different times with 1,000 different messages. This time I finally felt the need to actually write it down and am in a much better space to do so.

As you know I’ve been dealing with my share of issues and you are a big part of those. I have been asking myself what YOU represented to me and recently it was finally revealed to me. You were “Love. Passion. Letting go and being me.” For that, I am so thankful.

You had recently asked me if I ever figure out how to have a good relationship to share it. Although I’m no expert by ANY means, I have learned a few things recently. There are some great books that I have found helpful and I would love to share with you:
. Live Your Dash  ~by Linda Ellis
. Thought Revolution: How to Unlock Your Inner Genius  ~by William Donius
. The Alchemist  ~by Paulo Coelho
. The Happiness Project  ~Gretchen Rubin
. Eat, Pray, Love  ~by Elizabeth Gilbert

I do hope these will help with your search. I thank you for all you have given me and I wish you well.

Your friend, Susan

In keeping with my craziness, of course I do NOT send the letter.

    I think you should send her the letter and see her reaction.Even if it’s bad you’ll know what she really thinks. i have been there despite being 17 only-I sent the letter but I sent it as an Anonymous and despite there wasn’t a name, she knows quite well that it was from me.
    I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

    your journey is so incredible, soulful and intigueing….I also am so familiar with the letter written never sent scenario……

    Coulda, shoulda, woulda… Just for the record, I sent the letter (an email, really), and the results weren’t good. I plan to share that soon. Love “The Alchemist,” too!

    • Sappho, yes, you never know when you put your heart out there. But I’m getting to a better place in life that I realize if you don’t put your heart out there, it won’t feel like a fulfilled life. At least for me. I’m looking forward to your post and experience on the matter. The Alchemist – LOVED IT and plan to reread again soon. So many good life lessons there. Thanks for the comment; I appreciate it.
