I know I have mild acne, I know I can be lazy and procrastinate but please stop yelling at me for it. It's already hard enough for me to be figuring out who I am and how I fit in, let alone you pointing out all my insecurities and flaws.
Sincerely, a teenager wishing she could be carefree, but you stop me...
Dear little sister,
Please remember that you are younger than me. When I tell you to try to be a little less judgemental of people, I do it because I care about you. You expect everyone to give you the benefit of the doubt, but you can't even turn a blind eye to my eyeliner being a little bumpy. I've lived with you for 13 years so I'm used to it. Other people may not be.
Sincerely, Sick and tired of listening to complaints from your so called "friends"
Dear people who think LGBT people are always tolerant,
Sadly, they aren't. When I was a teenager I questioned my sexuality and thought I was a lesbian before realising I wasn't. Since then, I've met some LGBT people who think I'm a lesbian but pretending to be straight, and they won't listen when I try to tell them I'm not, and some of the most misogynistic people I've ever met are gay men. But most of the straight people I've met think that every LGBT person ever is perfect and tolerant of everyone, and saying otherwise is "homophobic".
Sincerely, there are horrible LGBT people just like there are horrible straight people.
Please realize that your boyfriend is not going to change. You've given him multiple chances, but he continues to treat you like shit. You have a five-year-old son who is starting to think it's okay to treat girls the way your boyfriend treats you.
Sincerely, If he really loves you, he shouldn't treat you this way.
Please stop stalking me. I truly hope you know Find My iPhone doesn't always work in rural locations.
Dear People I Know,
Please stop asking why I don't look sick. It's called an invisible chronic illness for a reason
Sincerely, yes I am still sick and no I am not going to get better
Dear Academy of Science,
Please know that I ended up breaking my foot running inside the house to open the letter from your school.
Sincerely, girl who "hadn't given enough" to your school
Just because I wear a lot of dark colours does not mean I'm a goth, pointing it out just makes me self-conscious. Please stop
Sincerely, your already self-conscious daughter
Dear beloved friend,
Please ask me about how my day is too instead of just talking at me about yours. I know things have been hard but please consider those you confide in as well.
Sincerely, You Haven't Asked In Too Long
Dear Pokemon Go,
Please buy better servers.
Sincerely, Literally Everyone
Please stop saying "Your generation does not [___]." Yes, my generation does. Just because I, as an individual, do not partake in whatever it is, that does not mean it's rare or taboo. You are making assumptions about a large group based on your outdated childhood and my non-representative actions. Your bias is so blatant yet you're so blind.
Sincerely, Your Grown Daughter
Dear One Size Fits All,
You definitely don't fit me.
Sincerely, plus size woman bored of disappointment.
Please stop calling your brother fat. You give each other a lot of crap, but it's clear he loves you, can't you love him too?
Sincerely, He does everything for you.
If you absolutely must form on my face, please keep away from my facial hair.
Sincerely, I want to shave without pain and scarring
