Dear letter holder;

Emily Dickinson once wrote “This is my letter to the world that never wrote to me.”

This letter that you have in your hands is my letter to the world.

I want to do things. I’m sick of the same old routine. I want to wake up in the morning with a purpose, a sense of propriety.
I want do live my dreams. I’m tired of being held in this plastic bubble, no way to escape. No way to be what I want to be, to do what I want to do.

I just want to break free.

Is that too much to ask?

I love this because it is so true. I want to be free and be able to make mistakes to learn from. You say all of that right here. Thank you for putting this up for people to see
