Please stop asking for advice and then completely ignoring it and shoving it under the rug. It's quite annoying. Should I stop giving it?
Sincerely, a friend who cares.
Please stop screaming at 2 AM. I'm trying to sleep!!
Sincerely, your annoyed and exhausted hallmate
The real problem with this election is that one of them is going to win.
I'm anemic. I'm fairly clumsy. I have a high pain tolerance and a physically active job. So, no, I do not think it's strange that I cannot explain where every single bruise came from. If you really want to help me, quit belaboring the "are you SUUUURE you feel safe at home?" question and work to fix the anemia.
Dear Now Ex-girlfriend,
I know it probably wouldn't have worked out in the long run, but that doesn't mean I wanted it to end.
Sincerely, No hard feelings, but wish it could be different
Dear Self-concious awkward Teenager,
Please understand that you are wonderful. Acne will go away, fake-friends will be found (and gotten rid of) and that person you like isn't an untouchable god. Love yourself, and love others more. Compliment people and help them, even the Aholes- sometimes they need it most. Someone loves you, open your eyes and believe them. Just 20 seconds of insane courage.
Sincerely, another awkward Teenager
Dear Primary voters,
Please don't vote at my high school, then go outside and hold up a Ted Cruz sign, stopping anyone thats coming to pick up their children from afterschool activities. There are 2 girls from Palestine in front of you. Go back to your "doomsday bunker" down by the river.
Sincerely, this country's going to hell, anyways.
Dear Local Psychologists,
Remember, someone had to take you on as a training student so you could get your degree and license. Start repaying the favor.
Sincerely, psychology student who can't find a training position
Dear Best Friend,
Please stop pushing me away. I know it's not your fault. I know you're sick. I know you don't really mean to be pushing me away, and I'm trying not to let it get to me. But you can't keep treating me like this and expecting me to just take it. I'm a person with feelings too. I'm just trying to help. Please just let me help you.
Sincerely, I can take a lot, but if you ever try to run me over with your car again, we're done.
Please allow me my moment to shine. I know you're passionate about your hobby, and I love learning about it from you. But being the student all the time is starting to make me feel like I have a lower IQ. Please let me be the teacher for once. I have hobbies too.
Sincerely, I swear I'm not stupid
it makes my day every time you come running into my arms every morning and telling your parents that I am a superhero. You'll probably never know that I didn't get the scars because I fought villains or monsters under your beds. And you'll never know just how happy it makes me to see you smile, even though at times your mood resembles the diapers I'm changing on a daily basis. But I'm thankful for helping to bring you up.
Sincerely, your kindergarten teacher
Dear "friend" who assaulted me on my birthday last year,
You've turned what should be a wonderful day for me into something I've been dreading all year. Instead of waking up happy, I woke terrifed after a nightmare replaying the attack over and over again.
Sincerely, I want my life back.
Dear foodcourt customers,
If you haven't finished your food, then have somebody at your table to "guard" your food. If that is not possible, take the food with you, or at the very least, tell the foodcourt attendants that you haven't finished. Otherwise, we will assume you have finished and left. Don't say "but I hadn't finished" because you'd be surprised how many meals are only half eaten then thrown out.
Sincerely, the foodcourt attendants you yell at
Dear people who think everyone will learn to be tolerant,
They won't. People will always shun or distrust people who are different. It's instinct.
Sincerely, someone who's seen too much of humanity to be optimistic.
Please take a hint. You're the most amazing girl I know. We were Eric and Ariel for the school musical, the Beast and Belle the next year, and Romeo and Juliet this year. I've known you since we were 5. Words cannot describe you. Can't you see the way I look at you every day? All the other relationships in the world wouldn't compare to ours.
Sincerely, Kate, if you're reading this, you know who it is.
