Unsolicited advice to someone who can't hear me anyway (no, not you)

Ignore bad behavior, reward good behavior. Radical advice, rarely followed. It can be hard to do, especially if you are someone who is deeply empathic yet disconnected from others.

Jealousy is a signal, like hunger, that someone isn't getting what they need. Whether that's anyone else's problem, let alone yours, is a separate question. But yeah, it might be yours, depending on what you've told a person and since forgotten about. It's hard, I know.

I know there were times when I first knew you that I would have been happy to have been yelled at by you. Better than nothing sometimes, until one learns to know better.

Be well,

The conceit is very reminiscent of McSweeney's Open Letters to People or Entities Who Are Unlikely to Respond.

The current letter, for example, is a rant to the makers of Clamato demanding to know what they were thinking. ("Clamato has the acidic, metallic smell of a can of tomato sauce being opened by a wizened, grizzled fisherman who reeks of drink and his own urine.")

The voices in my head do what I tell them.
