In 2015, a 34-year-old woman named Emily Trunko was scrolling through her Facebook messages when she came across an old conversation with a friend. The conversation had ended abruptly, and Trunko never got the chance to say what she wanted to say. This got her thinking about all the other unfinished conversations she’s had in her life. And so, the Unsent Messages Project was born.
If you’re like most people, you’ve probably sent a message you later regretted to someone named Emily. Whether it was an angry text, a drunken rant, or just an embarrassing typo, we’ve all been there. The good news is that there’s a way to retrieve those unsent messages, and it’s actually pretty simple. Here’s how to do it.
Start by brainstorming a list of ideas related to the unsent project. Once you have a good understanding of the project, start working on a plan. Outline what needs to be done and when you plan to do it. Then, start taking action steps to complete the project. Finally, review your work and make sure it is up to your standards before sending it out.
