6 - A letter to someone who hurt you.
The first thing I think of when I read this is an ex-friend named Tim. He dated a mutual friend of mine at the time, Scott, and I was stunned to find out from Scott that Tim had told him, “Stay away from Matt. He’s bad news.”
It hurt me at the time and I didn’t understand why someone whom I respected would say something like that. I couldn’t think of a single reason why.
Anyway, here’s my letter, “Dear Tim. I’m glad Scott ended up in a marriage with Alan instead of you. If you’re wondering why I cut off all contact with you many years ago, it’s because what I found out you said about me. Also, you’re a piece of shit. Signed - Bad news.”
