I’d like to start off by saying thank you for even considering writing someone in my situation. I know it takes a certain kind of understanding to look beyond a person’s circumstances and engage them as people; I honestly look forward to conversing with just this type of person.
I’d like to tell you a bit about me. I’m able to be honest with myself and with others, and I’m hoping to find someone to write to that shares this quality. I’m very respectful, even when opinions differ from my own. I’ll be direct and say I’m specifically interested in writing a woman. To me, there’s nothing like and intelligent female correspondent.
Although prison is obviously an adversity to anyone, it has and continues to provide me with ample opportunities to better myself as a man. I have dreams of getting out and functioning in society by helping others who’ve gone through experiences similar to mine. I think the more a prison limits a person physically, the more a person can grow intellectually, spiritually, and creatively.
I’m only hoping continue to grow in empathy and understanding by meeting someone new out there and getting to know them beyond the surface. If you choose to write I’ll be sure to respond as soon as I get your letter. Thank you once again for taking the time to read this. Take care.
