Letter I Wish I Could Send // Memory

A letter to my first kiss, my first “real boyfriend.”  // Part of a series I just started about letters I wish I could send. // It’s interesting to see, as I have been writing these, how sometimes I just jump right in… And sometimes I feel the need for small talk at the beginning.  This was one where I was going to just go straight into some memories, but that felt too sudden, too random…

(I feel like this one should include a disclaimer/trigger warning… There’s definite swearing and if you have had a traumatic sexual experience that you are still working through, maybe skip to another post.)

What is fascinating about this process of writing (and moreso, sharing) these letters, is that I can’t help but wonder if I am overreacting.  If I am being exhibitionistic. If I am oversharing. My aim is to be authentic and real.  To let you know that you are not alone. To share my process of, well, processing. Of healing. Of dealing with my emotions. Maybe the internet doesn’t need more of this.  But the internet doesn’t really need more cat videos either, and those keep popping up so…

Letter I Wish I Could Send // Lies

So, if you saw my post yesterday, you know that I’m working on a new series of posts containing letters I wish I could send to various people in my life.  I’m processing, venting, expressing, lamenting, reminiscing, and in general, just trying to identify some of the things I wish I could express but feel like I can’t or don’t know how.  So far a lot of them are focused on working through things from my past.  Do you have any things/activities/etc. that have been helpful for you to work through past hurts?  Or to help get closure?

And thus begins a new series comprised of:

Letters I wish I could send

to people from all aspects of my life.  People from the past, the present, and who knows, maybe even the future.  People who I love, who have hurt me, who I miss.  I’m going to do my best to not get too into specifics… I don’t want to slander anyone, or hurt anyone.  Just process and vent and maybe connect to some of you readers who can relate to these letters I wish, for one reason or another, that I could send.
