What is one thing you would like to say to someone in your life right now that haven't?

That I am falling in love w/ the man I am dating.

Susan, 32
, IL   USA

This sounds really immature, but I would like to talk to my ex-fiance and brag about how wonderful my husband is and how great my life is.  He called me last spring, out of the blue, and I was so shocked (and annoyed since he called during a new "Friends" episode). I didn't really catch on at first, but he was bragging to me about all of this stupid stuff. I could have played the game and bragged back, but I really didn't understand his little game until I thought about it later. I've thought about what I would say to him if I could do the conversation over again. But, when I really think about it, I'm proud of myself for just being nice and humble and not lowering myself to his pathetic level. What a loser. Thank God I didn't marry him.

"I can't believe you really think this sugary sweetness is real you boarhog from hell" to ************. Sorry, even I'm not that sure people I know don't read this webpage.

Amy, 24
New Orleans

I pretty much speak my mind. I really don't have any "unsaid" things.

Laura, 35
, MA   USA

I pretty much say what I want to--except, how about, "Why would you treat someone you supposedly love like that????"

Karen, 21

Most of the people I have to say things to wouldn't understand what the hell I'm talking about.

Probably that I'm sorry. I could say that to many people for so many reasons. Not particularly sorry for something I've done, but...if I could, I would appologuise for the whole world, you know? Like, don't cry baby, I'm sorry for all that they've done.

Jaden, 21
Brampton, Ontario

There's some things I'd like to tell my best friend about what was going on with me during the couple months earlier this year when we weren't as good friends for awhile, but I'm not sure if I'm going to.

Dianne, 16
Oshawa, Ontario

I'm lonely, will someone by my friend?

Talia, 23

Nothing really; I have plenty of things I wished I said to people who are out of my life, but since that is not the question, nevermind.

Bruno, 31

Many thoughts should remain private and not communicated now or ever.

Jill, 60

I learned a few words in Spanish so I could say hello to the Spanish-speaking cleaning lady at work. But the closer we become (and we have become close) the more I would like to be able to carry on a conversation with her...find out how she feels about being a cleaning lady and how she is feeling that day.

Reba, 51

So many things I don't say to folks until the moment has passed and then it seems sort of silly or weird to say something or do something about it.

Felicia, 34
Lowell, MA  USA

I would like to tell my parents that I am grateful for their love and support, even though I never show it. I just don't open up like that though.

Shanna, 15
Cardiff  ENGLAND

To my parents: I'm sorry and i wish you knew ....To Laura (well i've told you this before, but here it is again): I love you man! You are like no other and i couldn't imagine the world without you. You are the best friend i could ever possibly have! To Maia: I'm sorry....

I would love to tell Ethan's (my kid) daddy that he *really* really sucks.  In case he wasn't aware of that already.... = )

Maggie, 20

that i really love can't stop thinking about matt but i guess one day i'll get over him.


I would like to tell my Dad that I'm sorry we never became as close as my Mom and I are. I love the relationship my Mom and I have. I would hate for both our lives to end without one good conversation, without our shields, without his critisism, and without my age. An open conversation, but we must be too much alike, and I guess that's what did it.

Lisa J., 22

I would like to tell my uncle he's a jerk and I want him to leave my aunt alone, but...I never will.

Angela, 16

Here goes (to my former best friend and college classmate): Just because you've gained back the 100 pounds or so that you had worked so hard to lose - it doesn't give you the right to throw your life (and your friends) away.  You've managed to make yourself most unattractive, throw yourself at less than worthy men, and tune into the drug world. And why? Because of extra pounds? You were once a clear-thinking, intelligent and responsible woman; a wonderful mother to your girls and a dear friend. You're throwing all of that away because of a failed attempt at self-control. Wake up you ass! Did it ever occur to you that you can be loved and appreciated whether you are 140 pounds or 300 pounds? You're not doing yourself any good and I,  as a close friend for several years now, feel as though "I'm" being punished. You've sold yourself short and with all the psychoanalytical knowledge you possess, you should really know better. This is just not the you I know. For Christ's it not better to be overweight with dignity than without?

I'd like to say to my daughter and her husband, and really be heard by them, that you cannot change other people, you can only change your reaction to them.

Jane, 60

I would tell this girl I know that she's a really great friend, even when she's mad at me, and that I'm greatful for her always being there for me.
