The Unsent Message To Brooklyn
You’re never going to send that message, are you? You’ve been staring at your phone for hours, typing out and deleting words, trying to find the perfect way to say what you need to say. But you can’t. And you won’t. Because sometimes the person you need to apologize to is yourself.
What made you decide to send an unsent message to Brooklyn
It was a cold winter evening and I was feeling lonely. I had just moved to Brooklyn and didn’t know anyone in the city. I decided to send an unsent message to the one person who I knew would understand how I felt.
That person was Brooklyn. We had been friends since we were kids but she had always been there for me, even when we were apart. She was the one person who I could always count on.
So, I sent her a message telling her how much I missed her and how much I loved her. It felt good to finally tell her how I felt. Even though she didn’t reply, I know she understood.
What were you hoping to accomplish by sending this message
Assuming you would like a persuasive explanation as to why someone might send a message:
There could be any number of reasons why someone might send a message. They might be hoping to start a conversation, to get to know the person better, or to express something they feel they can’t say in person. Sometimes people use messaging as a way to communicate when they’re feeling shy or nervous, and it can be a way to build up the courage to talk to someone face-to-face. Whatever the reason, sending a message is usually an attempt to connect with another person in some way.
What did you say in the unsent message to Brooklyn
I’m sorry for what I said in the message I never sent. I was angry and hurt, and I took it out on you. I know that wasn’t fair, and I didn’t mean any of it. I hope you can forgive me, and I promise to never write anything like that again. I still care about you, and I hope we can be friends.
How do you feel about not sending the message
Assuming the question is asking for my opinion:
I don’t like the idea of not sending a message when I’m supposed to. It makes me feel anxious and stressed out. I would much rather send the message and know that it was received than to worry about what could happen if I don’t send it.
Do you think Brooklyn would have wanted to hear what you had to say
No, Brooklyn would not have wanted to hear what I had to say. She was very clear about her feelings on the matter and did not want to discuss it further.
What do you think prevented you from sending the message
I think the main thing that prevented me from sending the message was fear. Fear of what others might think, or say, about me. It’s something I’ve struggled with my entire life, and it’s something I’m still working on. But I’m getting better at it, and I’m slowly learning to not let fear control me.
Do you regret not sending the message
I’m not sure what I would’ve said in the message, but I regret not sending it nonetheless. It’s been gnawing at me for weeks, this what-if scenario in which I imagine telling them how I feel. But I never built up the courage to do it, and now it’s too late.
I keep going over what could’ve happened if I had just sent that message. Maybe they would’ve felt the same way and we could be together now. Or maybe they would’ve rejected me, but at least I would’ve know where I stand. As it is, I’m left with nothing but regrets and what-ifs.
It’s funny how one little decision can change the course of your life. If only I had been brave enough to take that risk, who knows where I would be right now. But I wasn’t, and so here I am, regretting the fact that I never sent the message.
What would you do differently if you could go back and send the message
If I could go back and send the message, I would definitely take a different approach. I would sit down with the person and have an open and honest conversation about what happened. I would tell them how I felt and why I did what I did. I would also listen to their side of the story and try to see things from their perspective. Only then would I be able to truly understand what happened and why it happened.
What have you learned from not sending the message to Brooklyn
I’ve learned that it’s better to not send the message to Brooklyn, and instead to just keep it to myself. I’ve also learned that it’s better to communicate with people in person, rather than through text or email.
