write the card yourself

next time you send a card, i challenge you to write it yourself.

but it’s hard. you don’t know what to say. you're not good with words.

i don’t buy that.

the truth is it’s a lot less vulnerable - a lot less uncomfortable - to use someone else’s words to express your raw emotions. it saves you from fumbling through a deeply personal attempt at connection. it’s a cop-out.

here’s more truth: when it’s real, honest, and handwritten from the heart, the least eloquent, most grammatically incorrect, misspelled message holds more weight than all those cookie-cutter cards combined. write it yourself.
