The Things I’ve Left Unsaid

Spent hours today, writing letter after letter. Ones I know I’ll never send.

How do so many people go through life without communicating?

For me, there are too many words.

  1. This is why I kept a journal and now I blog. I write letters I’ll never send and share them with all you strangers out there… Maybe the person they’re meant for will come across one someday, c’est la vie, but no I can’t imagine how some folks just keep it all in, draw, sing, make a sweater, you gotta find some way to “speak”.

    (and for the record, the whole writing letters you never send… Waaaay less backlash than sending multitudes of hate riddled texts, emails and voicemails…yah learned that one the hard way)

    • ‘draw, sing, make a sweater, you gotta find some way to “speak”.’

      I couldn’t agree more! I’m glad I’m not the only one out there that feels this way/does the same thing :)

      And yeah, I’ve gone the text route more times than I’d like to admit in the past, and this is waaaaay easier! Lol

  2. I think I may have to write such letters. If anything, it’ll help me get some stuff off my chest without getting into conflict with others (something I try to avoid like the plague).

    • I feel you!!! I can’t tell you how many times it’s spared me from some unnecessary conflicts! And even when you do end up having to talk to someone about something, it can be really helpful to get out all of your feelings about it first. That way there’s no explosions/saying things you didn’t mean, and it helps distill down what’s really bothering you.

  3. Sometimes I don’t know till a letter is finished how I feel about something/someone, or even whether I will send it, but it really helps get things clear in my mind. It’s great to relieve the weight of things that maybe can’t be said, or to get it right before it inevitably needs saying. Maybe people would speak less, but say more, and say it better, after trying this, I feel it makes what I feel or say come out more certain, and better articulated. Couldn’t agree more!

    • I’m glad there are others out there that do this too! It’s really weird how writing something out, seeing it all on paper, instead of having it all running around in your head, really can help you figure out what you actually think.

      Also, you really hit the nail on the head when you said, “Maybe people would speak less, but say more, and say it better” – I agree!
      Thanks for reading :)
