Open Letter to People Who Write Open Letters

Dear People Who Write Open Letters,

I know it seems counter-intuitive to write an open letter explaining why you need to stop writing your stupid open letters, I get that, but I thought it would be the best way to get your attention, considering you love these stupid articles so much.

The truth is, no one cares. People are so bogged down with all of this content that people put on the internet, that they really don’t care, and you’re worthless opinions that are back-handedly directed toward your ex-boyfriend, ex-best friend or whatever or whoever it may be, no one cares. Sure, plenty of people relate to that garbage, the number of shares don’t lie, but really, no one cares. We all get screwed over sometimes, does that mean you need to write a passive aggressive (come on, don’t lie, all open letters are passive-aggressive) letter to someone who spited you? Wow, you lived through a relatable experience. Congratulations. You had an experience that literally every other normal human being goes through, good for you. Sure its nice to know that we’re not alone in this world and our experiences are valid, but do we all need to write letters to a boy who doesn’t love us?

So, let’s get it together. Let’s stop being passive aggressive and let’s stop writing these God-awful open letters. Can we do that? Can we work toward that goal instead of spending an hour of our time writing an article to whine about some dumb boy and then share it on the internet? We’re all better than that. We do not need any more of that behavior. Stop it right now. You are better than that, and to the people sharing this trash, you are also better than that. Stop sharing it, and this trend will end.

Thank you. Please cease and desist.
