Dear gaming friends,
Please realise that we may play on different systems, playing different games using different controls. So when you ask us to play multiplayer, and just end up killing us in 2 seconds, its not fun. We don't expect to win, but being able to do something makes it fun, waiting to respawn is not.
Sincerely, PC gamer struggling with a console controller
Please don't ever treat my sister how you treated me. Don't call her a brat or anything like you called me. Don't lie to her and don't make all of her emotions about you. Don't hurt her.
Sincerely, your child, the one you kicked out.
Please stop feeding your cat vegan cat food. It's a carnivore, and you're slowly killing it.
Sincerely, If you want a vegan pet, get a hamster.
Dear Mom & Dad,
I know I don't say this often but I love you both very much and I appreciate everything you have done for me. I know you guys won't read this letter but I felt like writing it and tell it to someone. I on my way to you and see you in a few hours.
Sincerely, your daughter
Dear Brock Turner's Dad,
Please understand that twenty minutes of action is a lot. In twenty minutes, you can murder people, bomb a city, or do other such horrible things.
Sincerely, Please don't trivialize rape.
Dear Physics Professor,
Just because I talked back to you because you were wrong doesn't mean you have to fail me.
Sincerely, your student who topped all your exams.
I know that my cousin is here at the same college, and that he has all these issues. But I have my own life, I'm not spending all my freetime to be waiting on him hand and foot.
Sincerely, Not a slave
Please stop getting mad at me for not being able to watch a show about sex crimes anymore.
Sincerely, I know that you think what happened to me is a joke.
I'm sorry I missed your call. I'm sorry I haven't called you back. I know these weekly calls are your way of being involved in my life from three hours away. But I don't want to do it anymore, and I don't know how to tell you without hurting you. You're only my dad when you want to be, and you never seem to remember the times you disappeared in the past. You seem to be happy with your new family, so please just let me go. I was there for you all those years because no one else was, but you don't need me anymore and I need time to heal.
Sincerely, your daughter
Please stop making me do shit I don't want to do. I know you're going through a mid-life crisis and think that we need to renovate every square inch of the house, but I really don't see a reason to waste my time doing it.
Sincerely, I have homework anyways.
Dear friends and family,
I'm sorry that I can't tell you what my future is going to be. I'm still figuring myself out and I can only ask for support from you.
Sincerely, a college-aged kid who doesn't know what to do with her life
Please don't freak out when I tell you this. You are the reason my eating disorder was fueled. Your brief period of body hatred and sending me "thinspo" led me down a long path. Now I have 1-2 appointments a week. But of course I can never tell you that you fueled me to diet...
Sincerely, a friend stuck in therapy and relapsing
Please stop sharing "Christian" memes over Facebook. Get your Bible out, read, and use your brain to interpret scripture. Share insights with people face-to-face. Don't trivialize your faith by making a show of it and/or without critically assessing your views. And for God's sake, show love and spiritual discernment in all you do, not pride-filled judgment and condemnation.
Sincerely, a brother in Christ.
Thanks for this beautiful life and forgive me if I dont love you enough.
Sincerely, your child
