This letter is probably the most emotional of all of them to write, because the purpose of it is to go all out writing to someone who you feel needs to hear it. I know that sounds rather vague, but as you read that sentence I suspect someone popped into your head already. I'm a firm believer in gut reactions and instinct, so that's probably your most likely recipient. I say "all out", but a letter full of curse words and name calling isn't really going to accomplish what you need to do - which is open up fully about what's bothering you and get closure on whatever the issue is. While it's ok to have a parting word or two, the purpose is to let the person know how they've made you feel and why. And because of that, it needs to be a bit more thought out than something you'd say to a driver who just cut you off in traffic. Here are a few points to consider including:
- What has the person done that's hurt/upset/frustrated/angered you? Do they know this or is it news to them?
- Why do YOU feel they've done it? Perhaps you have different perspectives on this and that's important to express. Sometimes people don't realize the way their actions look to others.
- How has it made you feel? Why? Again, must be addressed.
- Are they still doing it? If so, do they care that it's upset you and are they willing to consider working on it?
- Is there a way to rectify it, or are you just too far gone but need to say your peace anyways?
