You write like the elder sister I never had.

You’ve expressed a feeling I’ve long wanted to word out. I’m in my twenties. Where I come from, the way I write, many people cringe.

How can you be so personal? How can you say all that? Aren’t you worried people will know too much?

I must admit that voice has been toying with me lately. Especially because of recent life events ( moving to the USA being one), I’ve been able to find more excuses to not use my authentic voice.

I can feel that my writing isn’t resonating with me as much as it used to. And this writing has brought me more joy than pain. Now, not so much of any.

Your comment encapsulates a time when I did it for the love, for the connection, for the emotion.

I’m really glad to have felt this again today.

Thank you.
