Dear boys who criticize girls for 'friendzoning',
Girls are not required to date you. We do not owe you anything. Just because you treated us like human beings does not give you the right to guilt us into going on a date with you. Just because you do not approve of who some of us date does not give you the right to say girls only date jerks. We don't owe you anything because everyone deserves to be treated with respect and kindness, and treating someone the way they deserve to be treated does not make you special or unique. It makes you better than some, yes, but you are not the only person out there who deserves her.
Sincerely, I'm sorry my friendship was a crappy consolation prize.
Dear J.K Rowling,
Thank you so much. Harry Potter helped me during times when I needed magic. And to know you also struggled in life makes you even more of an idol to me. Through all of the bullying, Harry Potter taught me to keep pushing forward. I learned to hide my stutter by reading it out loud. My safe place is Hogwarts, and I've visited my safe place many times. Thank you for keeping me sane after I was raped. Thank you for stopping my suicide last year.
Sincerely, 16 years old and planning to write one day.
Growing up, you drove me to piano lessons, ballet classes, figure skating lessons, tennis lessons and volleyball practices and I knew then that you are the best dad. Then in my 20's, I got sick and you slept in a chair next to me in the hospital for 9 months. It brings tears to my eyes thinking about all you've done for me and still doing. Thank you.
Sincerely, I can never re-pay you for everything
Dear psych major,
Some of us actually do suffer from monthly PMS. Hormones aren't made up. Mood swings and cravings may seem pointless to someone who doesn't really suffer, but it's insulting to say it's all in our heads.
Sincerely, biology major who knows basic neurology.
Dear Mike Jeffries CEO of Abercrombie and Fitch,
I am disgusted by your hurtful comments that say your store will only sell to a certain type of person, aka the "popular, skinny" type, which is the only type of beauty in your head. I may physically be the type of person you want shopping at your stores, but please know that I will never shop there again, and my friends are doing the same.
Dear people who are against social programs,
Have you ever lived in a camper without running water? Had only fifteen dollars to feed three people for a week? Gone to school terrified your friends would be able to tell you had to wash your jeans by hand? Watched your mother suffer through a painful disease because she can't afford the treatments she needs? Heard her cry at night because she got rejected at another job interview? Don't judge people who need help just because you never have.
Sincerely, hardworking girl who's been there
Please know that even though many of us cannot be there to help physically, you are in our thoughts. <3
I'm 15 years old and have no facebook account, no twitter, no snapchat, or insatgram... and I'm perfectly fine. I choose books as my entertainment.
Sincerely, ...and I even have friends!
Dear people with anxiety disorders,
Please remember that even if you don't overcome your difficulties completely, sometimes success is just going to the store to buy milk without panicking. You might get out of it or you might not, but either way remember to celebrate little successes along the way.
Dear girls complaining about your boyfriends forgetting your anniversary,
I took flowers to the cemetery for mine.
Sincerely, make the most of him while he's there.
Dear eight year old little brother,
I am incredibly proud of you for saving your friends life by dragging her above the water and out of the lazy river while the life guards that were getting paid to be guarding lives were too busy eating, talking, and texting to pay attention to the fifteen young kids in the lazy river when a parent just so happened to not be right there.
Sincerely, your forever proud big sister
Dear people who think Timon and Pumba are the only example of a male couple caring for a child in animation,
So... do we not count or did you forget about us?
Sincerely, Mike and Sully
When you say "Stop being OCD."that's like saying to a cancer patient "Stop having cancer."
Sincerely, your OCD suffering daughter
It's called out of sight out of mind and I haven't seen the guy in weeks. So please stop thinking about him.
Sincerely, trying to move on.
