You Bastard!

Hi All, This letter is to let you know that it is utter nonsense when you are told that going back to school to obtain a degree is beneficial and will open many doors. I am here to tell you that after working for over 20 years in a factory, I did go back to school, and I did receive a BA in psychology. But guess what, no one wants me! I have a 3.3 GPA, all while working full time and raising a family. I scour the job boards on a daily basis, apply for each and every job I know I am qualified for, only to be turned down every time. I have an excellent work record with no blemishes, references that can vouch for me and no criminal history. I can tell you that once you are over a certain age, you are pretty much useless in the white collar workplace. So, in summary, don't bother...

You thought she was your friend. You moved in together, watched Netflix together, you played in the snow together; you did everything together. Until she started staring at you and chewing with her mouth open constantly. You wanted to come home, sit down, relax and unwind from your college classes but you couldn’t. Not without her eyes burning into the back of your skull. You try to sleep, but you couldn’t not without the constant echo of her teeth gnawing on flaming hot Cheetos. You couldn’t even step out of the shower without making eye-contact with her and immediately screaming, “Why the hell are you in my bathroom, it’s 3am for God’s sake, I thought I could have one minute to myself?” She was your best friend. She loved One Direction, she never felt emotion, she barely ever left the...

So, where do I start? October 4th 2015 seems like the best spot. It’s the day my life as I knew it would completely change. Wow that read like the beginning of a period drama on lifetime. But it’s true, that was the day and unfortunately, it was the lack of a period that was to come the following week that changed everything. In short, and as of today, I am 21 weeks pregnant with your child. I’m not happy. I tried to be happy. I wanted to be happy. I’ve accepted the fact that this child is coming. Parts of me think I should have aborted it. It would have been very convenient for my you whom has explicitly expressed to me just how much you don’t want this child, and how I should be ashamed like “it”. How I’ve trapped you into taking care of someone you don’t want around. Telling me just...

You seen me, smoking my brains out in uniform. That was not an invitation to ask to "bum" a smoke off me. For anyone who is reading this - when I said "in uniform" it isn't a soldier, police officer, firefighter, etc. uniform I wear. I work at a fast food restaurant. Anyway, back to writing to the men who asked me for a cigarette... I seen you, for a brief few seconds - just long enough for you to annoy me without knowing it. What you probably didn't know was that I was only on break for 15 minutes just trying to get my nerves back to where they should be. It wasn't even 15 minutes by the time I punch out, get outside, and get back inside to punch back in. I deal with the public and I'm actually very good at it, in fact, I got promoted to supervisor because I'm so good at it. What...

Thank you for choosing me Those aren't the words you expected to hear but I am truly thankful that you didn't pick my sister's. Thankful that you didn't have the chance to try and ruin them. Those nights you came into my bed and thought I was asleep. The days that you thought I didn't realise what you were doing, on public transport, in broad daylight. I was young, I didn't know any better. I was so scared. I wanted not to disappoint everyone. So they remained blind. But now this is not just between you and me anymore. Everything that is in the darkness comes to light. For so many years I've been living in fear. For so many years I've suppressed it. For so many years you have affected me, tainted everything I am. You made me move away whenever anyone came close. I...

To "O" we went on two dates where you told me about how your awful ex girlfriend only wanted you for your money and sperm. You broke down as you told me that she wanted to have your baby but didn't want to marry you. I sat, I listened and I supported you. During the date, you asked me if I wanted to go on a date with you next week, I said yes. You didn't call. To "S" we went on three very nice dates. There were no awkward silences, we had a lot to talk about and I thought we got on very well. On our last date,we made a plan to go to a restaurant a few nights later. You walked me to my car, holding my hand and kissed me on the cheek. You didn't call. To "T" we met on a dating site, chatted on the phone for an hour before we met at a nice wine bar. We laughed and sang along to cheesy 80's...

Can you imagine what a dog feels like after they are abandoned by the people they consider as family? It must be very confusing for the poor dogs. It’s such a heartbreaking scene watching the abandoned dogs roaming around, probably still wondering why they were left there, and still waiting and hoping that maybe their owners would come back for them. Brooke, a rescuer with the Kings SPCA-Rescue saw that exact scene when she went to pick up a dog abandoned on the street. Brooke has rescued dogs before, but this one really got to her. She filmed the rescue, posted it on Facebook, and captioned it with an emotional letter addressed to whoever abandoned the poor dog. This was what Brooke wrote: “Dear The Callous POS owner of this dog, Today we noticed a couple of emails from...

I hate you. You've been in my life since I was a year old. You showed up in my sister's brain when she was only 2 months old. How is that fair? What could a 2 month of have done? How could she have deserved that? You ate away part of her skull and surgery was not an option because of where you were. We were only able to have chemo and radiation and hope that worked. You took her life 2 weeks before my third birthday. I didn't understand she was gone then and all I wanted was to see my sister. As I grew, I started to understand what death was. My memory of my sister also began to fade. I grew up feeling so guilty because I didn't remember my sister. When I thought you would never be in my life again, you showed up. This time you took my mom hostage. When I was told you were here...

~ An Open Letter to 2015 ~ Dear 2015: One word could sum you up: change. To some, change is hard. Many abhor it. Fear it. Dread it. To others, change is good. They embrace it. Demand it. Push for it. Plan for it. Cause it. Change is an entity on its own. It can not be roped, wrestled, stopped, or put in a box. It is thrust upon us without pausing to ask our permission. You started off so bright! My hopeful and joyful post on January 1st: HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! Here's to a beautiful 2015!!! Lots of big dreams...

Hi, It's been three months today since we went our separate ways. You've moved on with your life (no surprise), and I... well, I'm not sure that I have, or ever will for that matter. If you're reading this (which I doubt) I'm sure you've no idea that YOU, dear husband, are the intended recipient of this letter. If you are somehow aware, excellent. Here are all the things I've wanted to say during our separation, but never could. First and foremost, I would like to thank you, for multiple reasons. The first 3 months of our marriage were like a fairytale. You truly swept me off my feet, and showed me what love could, and should, be like. For that, I will be forever grateful. You set the bar for any man coming to fill your shoes. More importantly, however, in the following months after...
