This is why I’ve been seeking pen pals. Writing letters has become a lost art when it connects two people on such a human level. You share details of your lives with each other, the types of things that you wouldn’t share on social media. Depth, vulnerability, and your most personal stories. To be able to look back on those letters someday is a rewarding and heartwarming experience to remember what you once shared with someone.
