In a time where the digital world has taken over our daily communication, there are still people who believe in the magic of the written word. Letters may seem to be a thing of the past for most of our generation, but this written message can carry your heartfelt feeling like nothing else! Not only do they convey your emotions in the best possible way, they also give you an option to continue using the beautiful stationery you bought sometime ago.
Well, some things are best put down on paper, and we show you why letters are probably still the best way to communicate.
1.) A letter puts an instant smile on the face of the receiver.
Read the name on the cover of the letter, and it will definitely bring a smile on your face. Even before opening the letter and reading its content, a letter from a friend or family based in some place far away will make you super happy.
2.) Letters make the best surprises in today’s world.
In an era of emails and a time where most people do not put much thought into a text message (or even use SMS lingo), getting a personalized and hand-written letter from a loved one would count for a wonderful surprise.
3.) Careful thought goes into writing a letter and using the full words rather than abbreviations helps with your writing skills.
Unlike mobile phone messages, letters adds a personal touch to your feelings. Whether it is about something good or bad, letters take a lot of time and attention to read and write, which makes the impact much better than phone messages.
4.) Gives both sender and receiver the time to think about what is written and not just blurt out words for the heck of it.
Whether the letter carries some good message or a bad one, whether it has been sent just to say hi, or whether the letter carries some important news, it gives both of them enough time to ponder over its contents and react accordingly.
5.) Letters are taken more seriously!
The moment you put down something in writing, however silly or important it might be, it is taken much more seriously. Letters still come across as means of important communication and thus, carry more weight naturally.
6.) You feel an emotional connect with the sender.
Letters have the ability to transmit emotions across borders, making you feel a deep emotional bond with faraway friends and relatives. Pen pals are somehow more trustworthy than an online friend!
7.) The tangible nature of letters makes everything very much real.
Believe it or not, it is as good as holding the hand of the person who sent the letter. You feel a natural closeness with the person who has sent you the letter.
8.) And, above all they still make the best memories! #TrueThat
Letters are a thing to preserve, something you can go back to after months or years and they will still bring back beautiful memories and put a smile on your face, making you want to reach out for your pen and write a letter to the one who sent it.
