I want to be outstanding. But my expectations to myself always is over the top from reality of who I really am. I see myself as a singer, a dancer, an activist, a caregiver…
But I’m not any of those things. Not really. I’ve tried my hand at so many different undertakings been eager and positive about each one until it turned perplexing or monotonous, and then… I stop. I never make it to the next level, where I might actually get good but never the best. I’m determined at the start; it’s being consistent to something that’s hard for me.
I used to vision myself being really good at something and I’ve succeeded to assure myself that the reason it hasn’t happened yet is because I just haven...
I have faith in many things that my mother taught me, and for that I am grateful.
For all the mothers!

I keep hearing to poets out there, and I always learn something new, when I listen to them. Another day, I was listening to some guy and he said that write only when you can't stop yourself, not because you have to. Not because you haven't written for a while. Write when it comes from within.
So this one is from within!
I'm a completely rational person who always analyses the risk that might follow your decision. This time I took one.
Thinking that the highest risk, will give me the highest return. The policy went in such a way that the returns were still the same and the risk became higher. It felt like I am stuck but the fun part is I didn't walk out when I had the chance. I did no...
I want to express how grateful I am for this app!! I'm from the U.S #Kentucky. I know that there are people who were raised less fortunate than I have been! But I don't come from a lot of money either. My wealth has always came from within the way I view the world. I consider myself a very unselfish person but when it comes to this app I feel like I'm selfish! I say that because where I'm from everyone judges you they have to be better than you and all the other social media apps it's like a string of people bashing other people because they don't feel right inside. The city I'm from no one really knows about this app and I have to apologize because I'm not willing to share it with...
We left your nest
with hopes and dreams.
Our eyes sparkled with curiosity and anticipation as we embarked with your prayers and love.
We came a while later,
And stripped of all strength.
We were glad you were still there,
looking out for the squealing of our wings,
And we embraced you as you spread our arms,
Baring our scars open
And releasing an ocean of tears.
This gratitude for you
Forever sings your humanity.

It was once written that “fear is a natural response of moving closer to the truth.” I hope that lettrs has helped people find the truth in themselves, to overcome their fears and write things that help them find what’s in their heart.
We are all part of a bold experiment in technology, to see if longevity in words and meaningful messages can exist in our detached world.
Dear Drew Bartkiewicz,
I’m a few days deep into what is going to be an incurable Lettrs obsession! Upon dabbling on here, I had to read more about the background!
I read all about you & your idea behind it, which is brilliant & when I saw you were active on the app yourself
I thought to myself -
“Wow! What a guy!”
After only 5 days on Lettr I have begun dabbling in writing again as to deal with my addiction/mental health, which I have not done in years.
It turns out, people like my writings and I have actually found a few people I chat about Recovery with on the side!
Users are all friends, looking to help others & quick to compliment, unlike the other social media rights. It’s is ...
I chose to start writing on lettrs again because I needed something meaningful in my life and this has always been that to me.
Lettrs is different than other forms of social media. Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat don't have an authentic culture like lettrs. People have a tendency to post the best version of themselves online, working to capture their best moments or to create moments that are memorable in order to be viewed a certain way or just for attention.
Unlike the other forms of social media lettrs allows you to be broken in a beautiful way - to post the moments that are not perfect or filtered. Lettrs allows you to creatively be yourself in a non judgemental community.
Don’t let your pass define you. But instead Learn from it and understand it , but let it go in other to create a brighter futur from your own heart and imagination.
So finally it was Sunday.
I came out of my room walking towards the kitchen rolling up my hair in a hair bun bare foot started the coffee maker and turned on some music .
“Cause the days get brighter when you're here
So I gotta keep you near” Khalid sings beautifully
I walk towards my living area dancing softly I grab my spectacles and the book I was reading quickly jumping on the page where I was keeping the bookmark aside.

Healing sucks. It hurts. The pain seeking an outlet from within the center, working its way through every fiber of the being. Bones cracking, nerves tingling, organs bursting, cells bum rushing like a football player attempting to gain yardage, blood boiling, skin searing and feeling like it’s being peeled back from the body to open up the softened, pliable soul. It screams inside the head. The little inner voice telling you to just give up and make it go away.. one phone call and it all ceases to exist.. it’s terrorizing, it’s malicious, it’s fabricated bullshit just to twist the mind into believing thoughts you’d be better off. Lies we tell ourselves. Enlightened and ...
Sometimes you must trust the universe and embrace the journey,
even if it means traveling to places you’ve never been before.
The open road never judges those that cross its path.
All the trappings that once held you back will be dust that settles in the distance, a distance that you control.
What matters is that you matter too.
Do not be afraid of the unknown - you will be in the company of strangers, each on their own personal journey with their own personal baggage.
The places you visit, the people you meet, will aid your regrowth but they will not define you as a person.
The moment you buy that ticket,
regardless of the cost,
that will be your defining moment.
I love this app! I missed it...what a great day! My son turned 9 today. Ots also Earthday !! Blessed be!
Quería escuchar tu voz antes de dormir. Pero me acordé que hoy duermes acompañada. No me costó más que reír, por no llorar en soledad nublada.
Fuiste mi eclipse en luna llena
Fuiste mi cárcel y mi cadena
Fuiste mi desvelo en llantos
Fuiste mi corazón partido en cantos
Traté de llamarte muchas veces
Me acostumbré a ti en pocos meses
Me hiciste creer que era yo tu futuro
Pero nadie te dice cuando duro...
Te puede dar la vida por no vivir el presente
Por vivir de ilusiones que te hacen sentir diferente
Te hacen alcanzar el cielo pero no es real
Y cuando despiertas vas cayendo de una altura emocional
En declive por el precipicio de los sentimientos
Donde vas recordando acontecimientos
Hey lettrists !!
For once I need to tell you all that guess what ?
“It’s okay” to be not okay it’s absolutely one hundred percent legit for you to feel whatever you feel cause
Hey ! We’re all humans ! The problem would have been when you’re unable to feel anything at all .
Emotions .. be it any kind good , best , bad , worse .. it’s okay cause you know when you get through it you will be a different and a more upgraded version of yourself .
Life is beautiful! It always was . Show gratitude .. you see a person sad you go to them talk to them share some beautiful smiles .
You want to laugh eat that ice cream go for it !
It’s okay if you’re 30 and love balloons..go buy some.
A Letter to My First Love,
It has been some time now, not a crazy amount of years or even that many months but it feels like forever to me somedays. And other days, it feels like I had you just yesterday.
I still don’t know how you managed to take over my heart and my mind. It was fate to meet and fall in love with you. You gave me this feeling that no one else had ever made me feel.
I want you to know that it’s all good between us.
I often wonder how you are, and though I have no idea, I believe you must be well. It’s what I hope for, because it’s what you deserve.
As for me, sometimes I’m unexplainably happy that I sometimes cry. If I saw you again I would hug you, just to thank yo...
