For the longest time, I want to write letters to others. It’s a dream comes true that I finally can do it with the power of social media :))
One time, my friend asked me how have I been? A simple gesture which maybe means nothing to her, but for me, means a lot at that time. I know the feeling of being asked at the right time can means that you still needed. There is someone who still wanting to know your whereabouts and asking you to tell your story.
A human connection. Even in this digital era, can do a lot of things. So awhile ago, inspired by my own writing and thoughts, I asked a simple question (with not so simple answers) to my friends on the internet.
Some people answered me wholeheartedly. About their worry and joy, and about their darkest secret. I’m really thankful to read it. Some people might answer it easily but there are a few answers that struck me. I feel their sense of urgency to talk and it reflected about myself a lot. Sometimes, I feel a sense of urgency to communicate with someone, and most of the time, that’s when I post something in social media.
It’s not easy to send letters in this era, where everything is delivered in bytes and seconds. Most of the letters I sent was delivered safely, but a few didn’t. I cannot track it either, I guess that’s the beauty of sending letters, haha. But here are some of the letters that got delivered. Though there is nothing fancy about the cards, I did choose the appropriate cards to match the personality of the receivers and the answers they gave me earlier.
I didn’t send any special things. Just some words in a paper, but I got a lot of warm messages in return. I feel loved. I realized that making people feel welcomed and happy is one of the reasons for my being. If people told me that my letter made them happy, actually I’m the one who’s being happier.
As like any other people, I always want to do something big to matter to other people. I haven’t found a way to do something big (and sometimes I feel like a failure), but if a word in a paper can make a difference, I’d love to do it more.
Sending more love to you :3
