Have you ever wished that you had the courage to tell someone how you really feel? Have you ever wanted to say something but felt like it was too late? This happened to me a while ago, when I found out that my best friend Jessica had passed away. Jessica and I were close in high school, but we lost touch over the years. Despite our distance, she remained in my heart and mind as I thought of all the things I wish I had said to her. Writing these unsent messages became therapeutic for me, so I’m sharing them with you today. Hopefully they can help anyone else who has ever felt unsure or afraid of expressing themselves. Take a look at what I wish I had told Jessica over the years.
The first unsent message: an apology
It’s been over two years since I last spoke to Jessica, and there isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t think about her. We were so close at one point, and then things just fell apart. I’ve thought about reaching out to her many times, but I always stopped myself. Part of me was afraid of what she might say, but mostly I was just ashamed of how things ended between us.
But today, I’m finally ready to apologize for my part in what happened.
I’m sorry for the way I treated you when we were together. I know that I wasn’t always the best boyfriend, and I take responsibility for that. There’s no excuse for the way I behaved, and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.
I’m also sorry for the way things ended between us. I know it was painful for you, and it’s something that I regret deeply. If there’s anything I can do to make it up to you, please let me know.
Lastly, I just want to say that I miss you and I think about you all the time. Our friendship meant so much to me, and losing you has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever experienced. Hopefully someday we can repair what’s been broken and have the friendship that we once had.
The second unsent message: a declaration of love
I love you, Jessica. I think about you all the time and I wish I had told you sooner. You are the best thing that has ever happened to me and I want to spend the rest of my life with you.
The third unsent message: a thank you
The third unsent message is a thank you. I want to thank Jessica for being my friend, for always being there for me, and for never giving up on me. I also want to thank her for never judging me, even when I made mistakes. Thank you, Jessica, from the bottom of my heart.
Writing this unsent message to Jessica has helped me realize that it’s never too late to tell someone how you feel and that words have the power to heal. I hope that by sharing my story, I have been able to inspire others who might be in a similar situation as I was in – wrestling with unspoken feelings of love for a friend or family member. It is important not to take these feelings for granted and instead find an appropriate outlet for them before it’s too late.
