LETTERS TO MY LOVED ONES THAT THEY WILL NEVER RECEIVE
I love connecting and acknowledging my true emotions because it helps me to feel free from any negativity that may be inside. I think it is obvious that I like to write and I find it to be very therapeutic. It is a chance for me to express myself fearlessly; so I take that fearlessness and write to my loved ones, whether they are walking this earth or not. It may seem weird to some but you can’t knock it until you try it. So why am I writing a letter and never giving it to the recipient? It helps to rid myself of the past. I don’t have to worry about getting a response that isn’t necessary and I can be at peace with that person/situation. It allows me to exhale when I’ve been holding in emotions that I was unsure of how to release.
The letters that I write to my loves that are no longer present it’s to tell them my final goodbye until we meet again. It is a chance for me to acknowledge the feeling that they once gave me and the feeling that still lingers after they have passed. It is my moment to free myself of any grief that I’m withholding; the moment to accept their death and be at peace with it. Now, the letters written to people that are still present is to express some form of hurt that has occurred and either that person doesn’t deserve to see me in a vulnerable manner or I need closure. There could be numerous reasons for me writing a letter to someone still present but the end result to keep me mentally and emotionally healthy. So what do I do with the letters after I finish writing them? It honestly depends on how I feel, the person, and/or situation; I may throw it away or keep it to either add to it but majority of the time I throw them away.
So what are some of your tactics for releasing emotions never expressed? Try writing a letter to that person you’ve been withholding feelings for and see if it makes you feel better. It can very helpful to your emotional stability.
