5. Write a letter (one that you never have to send) to a fertile in your life. Did they hurt you? Support you? Tell them how you feel, all the things you can’t bring yourself to say in person.
Dear M. L.,
You were one of the few people I confided to not long ago about what has been (not) going on in my life. When you told me you were pregnant, I admit, I was taken aback. I was so happy for you because I knew how much you wanted to be a mommy. But I did too. I knew you felt bad telling me you were pregnant, and that made me feel bad about my own feelings. But you have been nothing short of amazing during your whole pregnancy. You encouraged me, without appearing superior. You distracted me from my own pain by including me in your pregnancy milestones, something that must not have been easy for you. I’m glad you didn’t hide your own excitement. I’m glad you were still direct with me and I’m thankful you still took the time to ask how I was feeling.
You asked me questions, you gave me moral support and you never shied away from the things that make people uncomfortable. You are one of the few that, though you have not walked in my shoes, you know exactly how to walk beside me. I want our kids to grow up together and you continue to give me hope that this will happen.
You are a wonderful new mom and you have no idea what your friendship has meant to me. Thank you so much for all your love and support. XOXO
