Girl I Complemented on the Subway,
Please understand that when a guy compliments you, he's not trying to get laid. I just thought you deserved a compliment.
Sincerely, I saw the scars on your arms.
Dear Significant Other,
Please don't think so far ahead. It's nice to think that we'd still be together years from now, but our relationship is still new. I can already tell our lives will take different paths and it hurts me to see you plan everything around us. Please, focus on your own path.
Sincerely, I don't want to be THAT ex
Please give yourself more credit. You are doing great! The only one who can change your world is you.
Sincerely, Someone who cares
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 Male Co-worker,
Please stop! Stop asking me to go for walks and go to lunch!!! I'm so tired of making excuses and telling you "no thank you"!! I'm married, You are married and it makes me uncomfortable every time!! I don't mind being friendly but you are annoying! Take an f'ing hint already!
Sincerely, Female co-worker of 15 + years! I want to keep it professional!
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...
I know what you're doing, but I'm not your last girlfriend. Every time I leave my house, you end up meeting me at the location I'm going to. If I say I want a day to myself, you get suspicious. It's come to the point where sleeping in my own bed is more of a treat than sleeping over at your place.
Sincerely, the girl who needs breathing room.
Dear those who are heartbroken,
Please know you can survive it! It may take a long time. You may feel weak, fragile and shattered. Time does heal, the pain will ease even if doesn't seem like it at the moment. You might not be the same, that is okay. Focus on the new you and what you really want, despite how hard that may be. Losing love can hurt physically and emotionally. Remember to forgive yourself. Always forgive yourself!
Sincerely, a woman still healing.
Dear Delivery Team,
Please do remember to put the item you're supposed to deliver in the delivery truck next time. At the very least, call the person you're supposed to deliver that item to during the delivery window you provided and tell them you won't make it. Making a customer sit around for 3 hours past that window just to be told that the item won't arrive today is very unprofessional.
Sincerely, Someone Who Will NOT Be Buying Again
Please look at me. Your dating one of my best friends and I am okay with that. We are bound to meet in social gatherings, so please help me fix this weird gap. Because I don't want his awkwardness to hurt your current relationship that would simply hurt me even more.
Sincerely, I just want things to go back to normal
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 Guy I Am Dating,
Please be gentle with me because I like you a lot, and you have the potential to hurt me more than anyone else before you.
Sincerely, the girl who is practically in love with you
so, this is your first year working part-time at my job, you don't do very well and your school wants to kick you out because you can't meet their expectations. Yet you expect me to follow your rules. The ones we clearly disagree on and are in no way logical. You can't even say "please" and "thank you" in a job where you're supposed to educate children, just because you don't like me and my opinions.
Sincerely, I don't see how that works
Dear college which I attend at great financial cost,
if you require a course to graduate, either also require the prerequisite courses upfront so I know I need to take them or don't require prerecs.
Sincerely, a student taking the shitty option because it's the only one without 6 prerecs
Dear love of my life,
Please continue to be amazing. You're the best part of everyday. Thank you for putting up with all my moods, being there for me when I fall and always believing in me. I can't wait to spend forever with you. I love you now and for always.
Sincerely, A Scruffy Ginger
