Love Letters

To my single self, From an early age kids are shown and taught that being in a relationship is important to your happiness, whether you watch Sex and the City or simply admire an older sibling who has all the luck with the opposite sex. As a result, I found that I desperately sought approval from others and especially my partners, hoping that this would make me happy. Of course it seems obvious when reading this and for me to look back in hindsight but if I was able to change one thing about my past it would be to have enjoyed being single and experiencing things on my own. It is the majority of young girls' dreams to have a perfect wedding and society is no doubt at fault for instilling this idea from an early age. But you shouldn't spend your life hoping to find your dream...

Jack. Jill. A red brick house. A happy home. A brave heart. A Valentine's Day tale. Jack had the brave heart to buy a red brick house, water pail in hand. Jack did not fall down and break his crown when Jill went up that blustery hill, all alone. Jack laid back, for Jack was smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy. Jack was bringing sexyback with his water pail. Jill was shiny like a purring pussycat from the Serengeti: clever, curious and very pretty. The wishing well between Jack and Jill was not painted with 50 shades of grey, and yet, their love would not be denied on that starry, starry night. Jack went down on bended knee and swore to be the only man for pretty Jill up on that windswept hill. Jill loved the house that Jack built. Jack's red brick house hosted his festive wedding to...

An open letter to my understanding partner, After spending 5 years together it is surreal to venture back into the world as a singleton. So many people come out of relationships with bitterness and resentment but we have always been fortunate in that we’ve understood one another and have never wanted to stifle each other. It is surreal not having you as a direct part of my life (for now), especially after being together from such an early age. But if anything the distance makes me look back more fondly of our time together and it is a period of my life that I won’t forget or regret. It is understandable how people become so reliant on one another and it reached a point in my life where I needed to branch out and experience things on my own. It might sound silly but I do believe...

You, Where do I even begin? I want to scream right now with all this pent up emotion. You broke my heart in the worst way possible, you lied to me with all your empty promises, you just are the worst person I will have ever encountered, and yet a part of me still loves you. From the start we were destined to last forever, we had eachother and that's all we ever needed. We had the world in our hands and our lives ahead of us. We promised eachother that we were it, we would never let go. We made it through a lot, and yet we still lost it all. We invested so much time and effort into eachother, for what? Nothing. A few years went by, still feeling like we were on top of the world. I purposed to you in the sweetest way possible, which was wasted. I wrote "will you marry me?" In the...

Dear Gorde, I dont like it but obviously i have no say in whether or not we get back togather because you have already made the decision that it is over and that there is too much to try and repair the mistakes we have both admitted to making, but i still love you and want to be with you and i always have and always will regardless of how you feel or say you feel. I am finding it difficult to believe you when you say that this break-up is hard for you because i think that if this break-up was really that hard for you, you would be open to try and repair the issues that we have. I am and i am not sitting here blaming you entirely because if i am going to be brutally honest about this, like i expect you to be, then i need to own my part of the demise as well and i will go a little bit...

Reddit user IMAMenlo found a handwritten note on an empty chair at the San Francisco Airport. It didn’t have anything except “read me” written on the outside. This is what it says: I recently left an emotionally abusive relationship. After months of insults I wont repeat, false accusations, lies, delusions, broken mirrors, nightly battles…. I left. I know that I was being poisoned by each day that I stayed. So with a heavy heart, I left my lover of three years, knowing that I had already put it off too long. At first he begged, then he cursed, but eventually he paced his bags and faded out of my life like a bad dream. For the first few weeks, my body seemed to reject this. For three years I had seen the world through him-colered glasses. I didn’t know who I was without him....

I was hoping that I would never have to see your face. I tried really hard to ensure that I would never even have to learn your name, but social media and its passively cruel games in hopes of connecting people together had another plan. I didn't recognize your face, or your name, but we had a few friends in common, and I definitely recognized the man standing next to you in your profile picture. And my world stopped turning. I know what you’re thinking right now-crazy ex-wife is stalking your profile because you’re dating her ex-husband and she’s mad. And jealous. And sad. And I don’t blame you, but, you would be wrong. My world stopped turning because I was overcome with fear for you. You look so innocent. Your smile looks genuine, kind. You seem happy. I recognize your...

M, I get it now. I do. Our relationship died. And as much as I want you back you don't want to comeback . I don't think it's a matter of me moving on from you or getting over you. I never will. In my heart you are the one who helped me make sense of me and my world. My only task now is to make the most of what is left, both in terms of time and spirit. And in the really tough times I will close my eyes and imagine you are beside me and draw some strength like I used to when I reached out to take your hand, like a child on a dark night. I never will understand why after almost 6 years we could not sit down and discuss what was going on. I will never grasp this urge to run that you have. Be that to run away physically or run inside yourself to hide behind a wall of silence....

I don't know what makes me write a letter suddenly but I've always learnt I express more when I write and so that's what I am doing. For you. For me. I don't know if you will ever find this letter or even know it's for you but it doesn't matter. You're 15000 miles apart in a different country and probably even enjoying your new life and I am so happy for you that you finally made it :-) I don't know if you realise but we finished one year to our friendship which started rather funnily. I still smile when I recall the first time we met and how I was a kid when u blasted me for nearly hitting you with my bicycle. After that years passed and we met again and this time to become very dear friends. When I became friends with you I knew you'd leave to fulfill your dreams soon but I...
