dear John

I don’t really know you, but that doesn’t change how I feel about what those other boys are saying about you. They shouldn’t be making fun of you because you do well in school just because they want to make themselves feel better. I know those guys are nice guys, but they still seem to tease you and they shouldn’t.

I’m sorry that you have to go through this.

I have been through something kinda similar where people put themselves down and make me the smart one, simply because I was in AC Math and they weren’t. Just because I usually got good greats and finished assignments quickly and they didn’t. In a way those things are kinda similar to what you are going through.
I was going to go up to you after class and talk to you about it. I was going to tell you everything I just wrote above. I was going to give you the opportunity to talk about it.
But then I didn’t. I didn’t have the guts to do it. I felt like it would be a strange way to start our friendship (if we were to become friends) and I felt like it would be weird to talk to you about something that could become emotional when the most I had talked to you was for a partner activity (which I don’t think we’ve ever been partners, so I don’t think we’ve really talked much at all).
And now I feel bad about it. I should have had the courage to go up to you and talked to you. What’s the worst that could have happened? I don’t really know, nothing that bad could have happened. Why didn’t I go up to you?
I’m sorry.
Part of me wants a second chance. The other part of me doesn’t because I don’t want the teasing to go on.
Once again, I’m sorry. I hope to talk to you one day.
