Family

To all my loved ones, I really hope everyone is doing okay and having good days at whatever point you may be reading this. I wanted to do this open letter to get a few things out and to clear somethings up as I know that I have not been my normal self over the last few months and there are reasons behind that. Of late I have not totally been feeling like myself and have been very distant with friends and family. I have kept myself to myself and not reached out to anyone to talk about anything or release anything and this is how I have ended up in a situation where by I've not been around. Some of you may or may not know that I suffer from depression, something that I did not fully realise until about 2015 and I only realised this because new years eve of that year I tried to...

When you were two years old, you looked for me, you would climb the stairs and run into my arms. You knew you could always find me, that I would always be there. Arms open. Waiting. Then you were gone. We fought hard. A whole year passed. When you were four years old, you were back in my arms, we played, we laughed, we danced and we twirled. It was easy. I told you then, I wouldn’t let you go again. I would always be here. When you were six years old, we went in a rowing boat, we ran through the nature trail, we moved house, we brought you a swing and we baked butterfly cakes. We decorated your new room, I read you bedtime stories, I tucked you in and kissed your head. I said goodnight and turned out the light. When you were seven years old, you met your baby brother. You...

Dear Bitter Ex-Wife, I am writing this letter to let you know that the relentless turmoil you have caused in not only our lives but my son's life and your own daughter's life too. You see I met my husband way after you had moved on and left him for another man. You were living the dream and never around while my now husband had the daughter you share. You were busy planning your wedding and didn't care what your ex was doing until the day you met me. Then it changed, you thought you were still going to call the shots and control him and everything but boy were you wrong. You see, I don't play those games. I am also divorced with a child from my previous marriage but I, unlike you, put my child's needs before my own. When you decided to get a divorce that meant you were no longer...

My name is Ezra. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. Unlike most people, I always pray that I don’t wake up. I pray that someone can stab me so at least it’s not my fault. In this life of mine, I haven’t found a reason to keep holding on, I have tried so hard so hard to hold on. I’m tired of faking that I’m okay because I’m not, I’m not. I hate the alcohol but it makes me forget what I’m feeling for a moment. Everything bad happening to me is my fault, I know that. I have tried so hard to make things work but it’s like I just keep drowning over and over again. I have become stupid desperate and completely unable to grow. I’m bleeding 21 but don’t have my life in check or even a fraction of it. Why am I writing this? I’m writing this to let out my thoughts. I’m 21 and I wish I was dead. My...

Dear Parents I wrote this open letter urging you to monitor your children on social media. We all waste a great time every day browsing the news on all social sites. Social communication has many benefits but risks must also be considered. The new generation relies entirely on these sites to browse the latest news of celebrities and friends and form new relationships. Monitoring the children's interactions on the communication sites is by directing them towards what is beneficial and advising them, not by a direct coercive intervention that may cause useless problems between children and parents. In this way, parents can, through their directives, control the children, while warning against boring intimidation, which is frightening and futile, while seeking to raise these children....

Hi, mom, I know that you don’t love me anymore. There probably was a time where you did, but that time has long passed. I know that you want me to preform well in school so that you can show me off to all of your friends, it’s a win-win situation right? well not really... Your constant pressure and disgusting comments have only left me helpless and without anyone to talk to. Your pressure does not make me feel better or do better in any way. A lot of people have told you this too, but you seem to refuse. Even some of your best friends have suggested you to stop treating me like an enemy but you just won’t. You tire my father and you seem like you want to leave this family. Please just leave if this is truly how you feel instead of making me feel like this. There isn’t much I can do for...

You once made your request. You asked us to please not get married, at least as long as you're still alive. The thing was, I was dying to marry her. To share an excerpt of one of my online ramblings around that time: "I was raised to believe that the ultimate commitment is marriage, symbolized by a wedding. And more importantly, I believe that. I'm doing it for me, for me to be able to give my partner what I believe is the highest form of commitment - vows, rings and all." So, what did I do? I married her because I had to. And, how did I accommodate your wish? We had the most covert wedding in recent memory. No social media announcement, no celebrations of any kind. Any congratulatory message from any of our friends went directly to our phones. Because, no, we can't shout it...

To the “player” boy who is now the father of a little girl, You were the cool guy back in the day. Handsome, athletic, and popular. You did what you wanted, said what you wanted, and no-one ever checked you. You had girls talking about you, smiling at you, flirting with you. You grabbed them without permission in the halls, smacked their butts, maybe even more. You called some girls names like bitch or slut. You talked about them in the locker rooms, shared personal stories with your boys about what you did the weekend before. You rated some of them on a 1-10 scale. You analyzed their body shapes. You were nice in the beginning to get the girls you wanted to go out with you. You text every morning and night, bought gifts, invited her out to eat or to the game on Fridays. As time...

I apply for permission to appeal against the decision you have made. The ground of appeal is the following. On the 12 September 2018 I had my first appointment with the district judge in chambers, Maidstone, Kent at 14:00. My Ex submitted a word document with numerous Excuses to cancel the financial order, 99% was dismissed, but the judge latched onto the the MIAM (Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting) comment my ex made. I used my EX MIAM document that was used during out child arrangements order, but before I used it, I send an email to the court asking them if it was acceptable to use, which was sent on the Sent: 14 May 2018 13:27 (Subject: Fw: BV17D05727 - Priority - High Importance) subsequently the order was accepted. If I was informed otherwise, I would have done a separate...

Motivating kids to love anything but their computer games these days can be really tricky. And, don’t I know it. But, my dear parents out there, it’s also completely possible. Opening the doors of possibilities for your little ones is a truly incredible journey that lets you fall in love with life and the world around you and that lets your kids to find their own interests and put their little minds to work. The process is never-ending, sometimes tiresome and wonderful all the time. Keep in mind that no force or strictness will work if your goal is to motivate children to love learning. It has to be their choice. But, it’s up to you to provide them with the choices and put them in a situation where whatever they choose will make a significant impact on their perception of the world...
