L - Letter of Love

๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ“L- Letter of Love ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ’ Many people recommend writing their loved one a letter. In it, you can express the love and joy you felt while that pet was alive, and also the sadness of the unmet dreams, hopes and expectations. It is a form of telling your loved one how much they mean to you, how much you miss their presence and how you will never forget their memory. I found writing my letter to my dad, and to each of my pets very therapeutic. Of course there were lots of tears, and it took me a while and several attempts to complete it. I started the letter off โ€œI have been thinking about our relationship and I have discovered a few things I would like you to knowโ€ ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ’ Thankyou... for choosing me to be your mum... write down the things you are grateful for - because your pet was in your life. ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ’ Reminiscing on wonderful memories and good times. ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ’ This is your opportunity to say the most important things that were left unsaid. And itโ€™s perfectly fine to repeat things like โ€˜I love youโ€™ ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ’ If there are any negative feelings that come up, add to the letter: I apologise for... I forgive you for... I want you to know... If you are planning to write a letter of love, get lots of tissues ready (trust me, you will need them), find a nice, quiet area, away from distractions. You can light a candle, have some soft music playing, have your petโ€™s belongings nearby. Whatever makes you comfortable. There is no limit on how much you write, one of my catโ€™s letters was only a few paragraphs, another was about 3 pages. When you are signing the letter off, it is important to say โ€˜Goodbyeโ€™. Now stay with me... this is no different to hanging up from someone on the phone after a conversation. It is a letter of love, not a farewell letter. โ€œI love you Teagan Monster, I miss you with all my heart. Goodbye my beautiful girlโ€. ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ’ Have you written a Letter of Love to your pet? What was your experience like? ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ’
