Dear Resident Sasshole,
You and I have had differences from the very beginning. You have always found something about me that makes you act indifferent towards me. Time after time, I go out of my way to beg for your acceptance. Each time I do this, however, I am immediately disappointed. My attempts at kindness towards you always ends up being overlooked or underrated.
One day I woke up on the other side of the bed. I had a magnificent epiphany. It's not me, it's you. You are extremely ashamed of yourself, so you take your anxiety and anger out on me. You believe that putting me down is a successful method of bringing yourself up. News Flash: I am just as worthy of happiness and prosperity as you are. Your issue is that you feel inferior towards others who are truly happy. You become jealous and aggressive when anything good happens to another person.
I do not despise you because you are this way. I do not despise others because it only backfires on my own confidence, and hatred is not the path to a life filled with acceptance and genuine coexistence. When I look you in the eyes, my heart truly wishes that you could accept yourself and see the beauty in the gift of your life. I understand that appreciating your own value can be tough at times, but once you begin trying, it becomes easier.
Sometimes I wish you could be someone else so you'd accept me, but then I realize that who you are is who you were meant to be. When I see you, anxiety builds up in my chest, and I never desire to face you directly. Your personality can be scary at times, and I wish you could see that it doesn't have to be that way. This is all on you. I could buy you the world, and you would still find a way to tear at my self-esteem. Getting used to you has been a hard pill to swallow.
In essence, I'm trying to tell you that you can stop making snide remarks, dissing on the people whom I love, and acting like I'm not on your social level. It's not healthy for me, but most importantly, it's not healthy for you. I know that some day when I hit it big you will crawl back to me and want me to join your special circle of people. I just want you to know that I'll openly accept you when you reach out to me during some point in the future. I wouldn't want to make you feel how you've made me feel for the longest time. Retaliation doesn't create peace. It only instigates a vicious cycle that will never end unless one takes the time to demonstrate three important virtues--love, forgiveness, and understanding. I wish you the best, and I hope that someday soon, you'll wake up and realize you’re beautiful.
