I have bundles of old letters stored in the basement. From my parents, former girlfriends and close friends.
I am kind of terrified to go near them. The other day I pulled one out from under an elastic band. It was from an ex, who I still see in a platonic sense. I squirmed – and what made me squirm the most was the thought of what I’d written to her. Does THAT letter still exist? Can I ask for it back and destroy it?
Is this an issue for anyone else?
