11 Reasons Why World Needs More Love Letters

11 Reasons Why World Needs More Love Letters

Ever since the written word has become one of the methods of communication, love letters have existed as a form of expressing one’s deep feelings and sharing them with his loved ones. Love letters have served the romantic purpose of discovering mutual emotions in a relationship between two lovers. As such, love letters have played a prominent role in classic poetry and literature.

Today, letters are largely sidelined as a mean of communication, and love letters have also become a sort of rarity. Nevertheless, love letters, as a relic of bygone and romantic times, have a special allure even in our modern age.

The fast-paced style of living today favors instant communication. Love letters, however, are an old-fashioned way of putting one’s emotions on paper. Here are some reasons why we need more love letters in our modern, sometimes hectic world.

Get in Touch With Your Inner Self

Expressing your love for someone in a love letter lets you discover yourself and your inner emotions. You are not only opening to another being and admitting your love, you are also making an effort to get to know your own emotions. A love letter lets you discover yourself through love.

Express Yourself

Writing a love letter is a wonderful way of expressing your emotions, desires and affections. It also nurtures your creative capacities and lets you develop emotional intelligence, which is an important factor in any successful relationship. Find a new way to express your love. Practice your creativity and play with words.

Better Relations between People

A genuine love letter is always honest, and honesty builds trust among people. Regardless of the person, you direct your love letter to, mother, sister, husband, wife or a girlfriend or boyfriend, it is bound to have benefits in your relationship with the persons you care about. Telling your loved one how much you appreciate them will mean a lot to them and you will understand each other better than before.

Discover Real Interaction

Too often we understand communication for granted. Our notion of communicating with other people has been reduced to a few short messages, smilies or emoji. Love letters require a real effort and not just clicking on a right icon in your messenger.

True love also takes time. Composing a love letter can teach people to recognize the real meaning of patience in a world where everybody is too busy for real sharing.

Admit Your Feelings

How many times have you find it nearly impossible to admit your feelings in person? This can be extremely difficult and many people have trouble talking about their emotions. There can be thousands of reasons why you can’t admit your love in person. But there is no reason why this can’t be done on paper. A love letter is a perfect mean of overcoming your anxiety and recognizing your love.

Love Letters are Romantic

Everybody needs a little romantic in their lives. If you are in a relationship and you feel like you need to do something to spark things up, writing a love letter to your partner is a perfect way to bring the romantic flavor.

Moreover, a love letter shows that you are willing to work on your relationship and your partner will know how to appreciate it.

In a world where people have increasingly less time for others, and communication is reduced to a few smilies on the screen, a love letter stands out as a true mark of commitment.

The Pen is Mightier than the Sword

Words are powerful. We often disregard the fact how words can influence people and this is especially true in the case of people we care about. A love letter is a symbol of love put on paper. Unlike modern means of communication where words are only black prints on the screen, a love letter is more personal and direct.

Writing an old-fashioned love letter gives the person you love a feeling that he/she is unique.

Handwritten Text is Romantic

As we said, love letters are a very personal thing. In the age when handwriting is becoming a rarity and the majority of writing is done by typing, handwritten love letter has a special meaning. The way you write tells something about what kind of person you are, and more importantly, it is extremely romantic.

Tell Your Loved Ones How You Feel

It is great when you know you are being loved, and it is even greater when you have a living proof of that love. The main purpose of the love letter is to convey the message of love and connect you to the person you care about.

Love Letters are Endurable

Emails, phone messages, chat messages and other forms of electronic communication can easily get deleted or lost and there is little chance they will withstand the test of time. Love letters sometimes last for centuries, as a living proof of enduring love.

Improve Writing Skills

Although style and other writing techniques are of secondary importance when love letters are concerned, writing love letters help you develop your writing skills.  Love is always complex and the same goes for talking and writing about it. Only the best writers who had real insight into the inner workings of the human soul could successfully describe the secrets of the heart.

However, you don’t have to be a literary genius to express your feelings toward the person you love. You only need honesty. If you reach for your emotions, you cannot go wrong.

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty

11 Reasons Why World Needs More Love Letters

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

11 Reasons Why World Needs More Love Letters

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.

I know that
