can’t undo it

I’m trying to write a letter to someone right now, and it’s proving to be one of the most difficult things I’ve done in a while.  I spend a lot of my time advising others on being effective with words, and I’m embarrassed to be so stuck.

I guess, to be fair to myself, it’s because I’m trying to say something to someone that I’ve never said before. And I have absolutely no idea how my words will be received.  I decided I can handle any outcome, and I’m anxious to learn what will follow, but I can’t seem to finish the thing.  I’ve asked friends for advice, I’ve tried to just pour my heart onto the page, I’ve revised drafts…and I’m still stuck.  I’ve even Googled for help.  But Google doesn’t have my answer this time.

Once it’s written, it’s written.  And once it’s sent, I can never take it back.  We shall see.
