Dear Chinese Parents,
I'm not getting 90's in all my subjects. I'm not doing that well in math. I don't want to study law or medicine. But still, I think I deserve to be treated like a human being. And finally, do you really think that I didn't hear you complain about me to your friends? I may not be that smart, but I can listen.
Sincerely, Your "Worthless" Son
Please tell me what has changed. You liked me when I was just weird, you stuck by me when I was self- diagnosed. I really need you right now, believe me, it's harder for me than it is for you.
Sincerely, a girl recently diagnosed with Aspergers who sits alone at lunch now
Dear college students,
Please do not get a dog (or other pet) if you cannot take care of it. This means not having time for it.
Sincerely, the roommate listening to your poor, sad dog that has been locked in its cage for 6+ hours
Dear people in tasteless halloween costumes,
9/11, the bombing at the Boston marathon, and Trayvon Martin's death are not funny or clever costumes
Sincerely, it will always be too soon.
When I come home from school I help my sister with her homework, do my own homework, go to work, and make my own dinner. The fact that you are drunk during this entire process doesn't help.
Sincerely, your more than slightly agitated 17 year old son
Please stop telling me I could be more fit or lose weight when I can feel all my bones well through my skin.
Sincerely, Your daughter who just needs your love.
Dear Ex-best friend,
Please stop spreading rumors about me to people who are just beginning to know me. It's hard enough for me to put myself out there, and you claiming to them that I'm a horrible jerk doesn't make it any easier.
Sincerely, a former friend
Please Know maybe some reassurance would help. Instead of you staying on the phone speaking to your "boyfriend" while your husband and kids are in the next room.
Sincerely, your daughter suffering from depression.
Dear girl who sits next to me in my English class,
Changing the word 'however' to 'on the other hand' does not mean that you are not copying the WHOLE of my essay.
Sincerely, How the hell did you get a higher mark anyway?
Dear Motorist who almost killed me,
You were in that much of a hurry that you had to come a foot away from killing a fifteen year old girl, causing me to crash my bike, and skin the whole right side of my body?
Sincerely, As a cyclist, I have just as much right to the roads as you.
Please stop saying I won't find a man because of my height.
Sincerely, 4'10 and looking for a little love
Dear Mormon parents,
Please accept the fact that I'm a lesbian
Sincerely, yelling at me about it isn't going to make me straight
Dear Mom and Dad,
Please love me like you love my brothers. I know I haven't lived up to what you want but I'm not wired like you and it's more of a struggle for me.
Sincerely, Your only adopted child
Dear English Teacher,
You yelled at me for not reading the chapter you assigned us for homework. Little did you know that I was up all night doing homework, only got 1.5 hours of sleep, and recently had a seizure due to stress/anxiety from school.
Sincerely, Seriously considering shoving this pencil up your nose.
