Hi there Old Friend,
It’s been a while since we last spoke. I haven’t seen you around lately, and heh, you know what the funny thing is? Some inner part of me is glad that we haven’t been in touch. I’m sorry if this sounds mean to you, but it’s the truth! I’ve never been straight-forward with you, and now I think it’s time that I make things clear.
Lets see. You, my friend, have spent your life blaming yourself for the sins you never committed; punishing yourself for the times you thought you wronged someone. You’ve lived your whole life finding excuses for other people’s mistakes and letting them pin everything on you. But if you were standing in front of me right now, I damn sure would’ve slapped the living crap out of you, because you are a bonafide idiot. You think acting like a Debbie Downer is cute? Trust me, it’s pathetic and it only makes other people feel good about themselves.
Oh believe me, you’ve done that enough. People have come into your life, you’ve given them your purest form of sincerity and loyalty, made them feel good about their pathetic existence and when THEY found something else worth their time and got bored of you they screwed you over and left you alone to bawl your eyes out till kingdom come. I’m not asking you to wallow in self-pity! That is equally pathetic to blaming yourself. What I’m saying is: C’est la vie! (That’s Life!)
God sends these jerks into our lives just so that one day we’ll recognize and cherish the ones who deserve to stay. Don’t stop trusting; don’t stop loving; don’t stop being the best for the people around you. Just don’t let them take advantage of you. Don’t let them start dictating YOUR life. It’s simple as that. I understood that, that’s why I’m finally living the life I’ve always dreamt of. Chasing my dreams, not letting anyone slow me down, radiating happiness wherever I go, starting every day by clicking my heels in the air and smooching the sky because LIFE. IS. BEAUTIFUL!
I know you won’t get it this easily, that’s why I’m glad I haven’t met you for so long. It’s best for the both of us if we stay apart. You’ve always dragged me down with yourself into that Dark-Depressing-Pity-Cave of yours. Just pack your bags and go live in some far away jungle where there are no humans around you. I hope I never have to see your sorry face again.
By now you might have figured out that I’ve written this letter to myself; my OLD self to be precise. God, I really hated her. I hope she’ll read this letter every time she thinks of coming back again. Anyway, this was my very first assignment of the very first course I’ve signed up for on Blogging U: “Writing 101”. The first assignment was:
“Let’s unlock the mind. Today, take twenty minutes to free write. And don’t think about what you’ll write. Just write.
Keep typing (or scribbling, if you prefer to handwrite for this exercise) until your twenty minutes are up. It doesn’t matter if what you write is incomplete, or nonsense, or not worthy of the “Publish” button.”
So, I guess this lame-ass letter was the only thing I could come up with in 20 minutes 😀 I’m kinda stepping out of my comfort zone for this as I usually blog at the frequency of twice or thrice a week, AT MOST! So I hope this course will help me in developing my writing habit, teach me about writing better, and allow me to get in touch with other amazing bloggers! 🙂 So here’s to a fun-filled month of creative learning and growth! ^_^
