    Dear Self

    We have been together for some time and I can say Im starting to know you now. Your habits, your weaknesses, your strengths, your desires, and your true nature. I would like to say you have done okay, but why don't we get some good things going here. A little more. Some more...

    An open letter to myself

    for when I am ready to recover: Strange how the urge to start a new life creates incentive to end the current. It is not humanity that makes the world seem relentless. It is the changeless feeling of time passing and that alone is far more terrifying than any unforgivable...

    To myself, I admire your strength

    and courage. You are always smiling and helping anyone in need but you need to realize that you are just as important as everyone else. Don't push your problems away and take on another's problem alone. Your friends are here for a reason and yet you never ask for advice or...

    Dearest lovely friend,

    I'm so proud and happy for you. We made it. We found peace with all the things we thought we wouldn't. We took care of all the people we love most and learned how hard being brave and strong can be. There where times like fighting with dad or learning the verdict of the...

    It'd explain why I had to do it.

    Say I'm sorry, but I had to do it.

    Dear Me,

    First of all, breathe. You forget to do that on a regular basis, and some day, you’re going to realize that not doing so makes everything a lot more difficult. You hate it when people say that you’re young, cuz you don't feel as if you are. You’re mentally old, but you...

    So I guess this is the place to do it.

    . Dear Me, You had a pretty great family growing up. All close and nice, sure your sister never was the kindest or most affectionate, but it doesn't matter. You never really had the chance to fit in at school because little us had no idea that mean girl in preschool would...

    That letter would be,

    "Quit school and become a drug dealer for the rest of your life. It really wouldn't make a difference anyway. XOXO"

    Note to self, Calm the fk down!

    You always do this. Can't you just sit still and enjoy your accomplishment for 10 seconds. I know. I know, a lot of time passed very fast this summer while you were out there doing "your thing" and you really have to get off your butt on Monday or you will be very depressed if...

    Dear future me: ..Your views may be different

    now but right now..I couldn't care less about the world or life anymore. Call it whatever but feeling the way I do isn't bad, why would I need to be happy? All the time, why would I need to? Why do I need that and for whom? For society? Because feeling this way and not being...

    I'll just do it here.

    "Dear Charlie, you disgust me. Why the **** can't you just be normal. You have so much low self-esteem, it's almost unbelievable... well with that face actually... no wonder. You ugly piece of sh*t, I wish you weren't even born. Or why weren't you born as a boy at least? What...

    When I was in year 7,

    my year all wrote letters to ourselves in year 11, and I though it was a really good idea. I can't remember what I put in mine but I'll have to wait another 3 years to find out!

    I'll do it here. Dear me,

    How are you? We talk a lot, but we don't actually know a lot about us, do we? Or maybe we do, and don't like to think so much about it. What thought makes you feel more comfortable? I'm your worst friend, your best enemy. But also the only one that will be with you forever...
