Letter Of Disappointment To A Loved One
I am writing this letter to you to express my disappointment in your recent actions. I know that you are a good person, but you have let me down.
I’ve always been there for you when you needed someone, and I was hoping that you would return the favor. However, instead of being there for me when I needed it most, you chose to be selfish and ignore my needs. In fact, your recent actions have left me feeling like an afterthought in your life.
I love you very much and want to be there for you during this difficult time, but instead of pulling together as a family or even just talking about our feelings together with each other, we’ve kept everything bottled up inside until it became too much stress for us all to handle anymore. Because of this, we’ve become distant from one another instead of closer like we used to be.
I’m writing you this letter to express my disappointment in you. I am disappointed that you are not taking the time to learn about my culture and traditions.
I feel like you’re not trying hard enough to understand me as a person and what makes me tick. We’ve been dating for over two years now and I feel like we’ve hit a plateau in our relationship.
I hope you can see that I care about you, but sometimes it feels like we’re growing apart instead of closer together.
Dear [person’s name],
I am writing this letter to you with a heavy heart. You have disappointed me in many ways and I feel that I need to let you know about it.
I don’t want to say that you have done anything wrong but I do want to let you know how I feel about the situation.
I love you very much but when I look at our relationship, I see that something is missing. There are times when I feel like we are just roommates or friends, but not lovers.
I miss the way things used to be between us. We used to spend time together and talk about everything under the sun, but now we hardly ever see each other because we both have so much going on in our lives right now.
I am writing to express my disappointment in you. I am very disappointed that you have done [insert wrong behavior here].
I am disappointed because I thought better of you than that. I thought you were a better person than this. I thought you had more self-respect than this.
I hope you will take this as an opportunity to improve yourself, and come back to me when you are ready to do so.
I’m writing this letter to express my disappointment in your recent actions. I was shocked and saddened to experience the way you treated me last weekend. I thought we had a beautiful friendship based on trust and respect. But now that trust has been broken and I am struggling to forgive you for what happened.
I know you’re going through a difficult time, but that doesn’t give you license to treat others poorly. You should know better than anyone that life is too short to waste time on things that don’t matter. If you continue down this destructive path, it will only lead to more heartache in the future.
I want to believe that there’s still good in you and that someday we can be friends again. But until then I think it would be best if we both took some space until things cool down between us. I hope one day soon we’ll be able to put this behind us and move forward into our future together as friends once more.
I am writing this letter to express my disappointment in you.
I was really looking forward to your visit this week, but it seems that you are too busy with other things. I know that you have a very busy schedule and that is why I was so excited when you said you would come see me. I thought we could spend time together and enjoy each other’s company. I know that you have been through a lot recently and that is why you are having trouble making decisions about your life right now. I want to be there for you, but if you don’t make any time for me then how can I help?
I hope that one day we will be able to spend some time together because I miss talking with you and having fun together.
I’m writing this letter to let you know how disappointed I am in you. I’m disappointed that you didn’t give me a better childhood. I’m disappointed that you weren’t there for me when I needed you most. But mostly I’m disappointed in myself for not standing up to you sooner and telling you how much your behavior hurt me.
I held on for so long because I thought that if I were good enough and loved enough then somehow everything would be okay. But now that I’ve had some time away from you and have been able to think about things in perspective, it’s clear to me that nothing will ever be okay with us as long as we are together.
I know this has been difficult for both of us, but it’s time we both start moving forward separately. Please contact me once things have settled down so we can arrange a meeting where we can discuss custody arrangements for our son, but after that please leave me alone forever.
I’m writing this letter to you on behalf of my family and I.
We are disappointed in the way you have been behaving lately. You are our dear friend, and we do not want to lose you.
I know that it is hard for you to control your anger sometimes, but it is time for us to set some limits on your behavior.
We have seen you become more aggressive in your dealings with other people and even with us. We feel like we have lost our friend because of your behavior, and we don’t want that to happen anymore.
We want to be able to trust you again and know that you will respect us when we say no or ask for something else instead of what we had initially asked for. We want things back the way they were before all this happened; they were much better then!
I am writing this letter to express my disappointment in your recent behavior. I was shocked and hurt when you did _____ . It felt like a betrayal, and I’m still trying to process what happened. I know that you didn’t mean to hurt me — but it still feels like you did.
I feel sad and frustrated that this happened, but hopeful that we can move forward from here. I still love you and want to be a part of your life — but if you want me out of it, I understand.
I care about you deeply, and hope that we can figure things out so that we can continue to love each other as friends (or maybe more).
I don’t know how to say this, so I’m going to just come out and say it.
I’m disappointed in you.
I know that sounds harsh, but it’s true. I’ve been with you through thick and thin, through the good times and bad. I’ve supported and loved you unconditionally for years now, but lately it seems like all you do is disappoint me. You don’t call when you say you will, you don’t show up at my house to spend time together, and sometimes I wonder if you even care about me at all anymore.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m starting to think that maybe we should just end things now before they get worse. We’ve been together for so long now — longer than most people stay married — and maybe it’s time for us both to move on with our lives separately rather than continuing this relationship that isn’t working anymore.
I am so disappointed in you.
The last time we talked, I told you that I was going to stop by your house to see your new baby. I was so looking forward to meeting him and spending some time with the two of you. But when I got there, all three of you were gone. You didn’t even leave a note explaining where you went or when you would be back. And now it’s been three days and I haven’t heard from any of you!
I’m not mad at you; I just feel like an idiot for going over there when no one was home. It would have been nice if one of you had called to let me know that things weren’t working out as planned so that I could have made other plans for that night instead of sitting around waiting for a doorbell that wasn’t going to ring.
I hope everything is okay with your family and that this isn’t something serious or permanent. But if it is, please consider how much better off I would be if only someone had told me what was going on beforehand so that I wouldn’t have wasted all that time feeling like an idiot for coming over when no one was home!
I’m disappointed in you. I am disappointed in your behavior. I’m disappointed in your attitude. I’m disappointed that you aren’t living up to the person I knew you could be.
I want to believe that we can work this out and get back on track, but I don’t know how much more of this I can take.
Dear [loved one],
I am writing this letter to let you know how disappointed I am with your actions.
I was very upset when I learned that you had cheated on me. I don’t understand why you would do such a thing. You know how much I love you and how important it is for us to be together. This is not what I wanted or expected from our relationship. It makes me sad and angry.
I hope that in time we can get past this issue and move forward with our lives together as a couple again.
This isn’t just about us — it’s about our relationship with God as well. If we’re not living up to His expectations, then how can we expect Him to bless us?
Dear [loved one],
I am writing to express my disappointment in you. As you know, I have always tried to be there for you and be supportive of your decisions. When you wanted to go to college, I supported your decision and helped you get into the best school possible. When you wanted to get married, I supported that decision as well and gave you all the money I had saved up for our future children.
But now I feel like I have been taken advantage of. You brought home an expensive dog, who has since died because of his poor health care. You spent all of our savings on a vacation, even though we were supposed to be saving for retirement. You got into debt with credit cards and then refused to pay them off when they sent us threatening letters (and yes, they are threatening letters).
You used to talk about wanting kids but now that we’re middle-aged and can’t afford them anymore, it doesn’t even seem like an option anymore!
I am so disappointed in how far things have gone downhill over the past few years; it seems like everything we worked so hard for has been thrown away without even thinking about it first.
