“This letter revived in my memory what I had before forgotten, the threat of the fiend–“I WILL BE WITH YOU ON YOUR WEDDING-NIGHT!” Such was my sentence, and on that night would the daemon employ every art to destroy me and tear me from the glimpse of happiness which promised partly to console my sufferings.” –Victor Frankenstein

Dear to Whom it May Concern,
I am writing because my relationship with my creator is not as productive as I wish it to be. We never really got along and he never acknowledged me as his responsibility. He never really took care of me or nurtured me, as a father should nurture his son. I want to know how I can improve my relationship with him, because he is the only family I have. I don’t have any friends and just having him love me and be my friend would give my lonely life meaning. I have been chased away by humanity many times before, and have been hurt by the ones I loved and cared for. I have already tried to reason with him and show him that I am capable of love but he has denied my offers. I have sadly lost my temper with him on occasion especially when he broke a promise to help me get a mate. I then threatened him in order to get what I wanted from him, I know it was wrong it’s just I cannot stand seeing him so happy while I am so miserable. I really wish to repair our relationship, and now I come to you asking, is there any advice you can give a miserable wretch like me.
I have read your letter and I do have advice for you. First and foremost you should seek some anger management to control your rage. Second of all, you cannot control anyone’s feelings and actions besides your own. My advice for you is to continue trying to befriend by acts of kindness, and avoid any threats. Hopefully your father, or as you stated in your letter your “creator”, will find out you are not an enemy but a friend. Once again the only one whose feelings and actions you can control are your own, and if he stays distant and angry it’s his loss not yours. Remember every one has self worth and that includes you. Go out make some friends and I’m sure you can find someone who will not judge you for your outward appearance but for the gentle person you are. Don’t be afraid to get out there and make friends just because you were hurt before doesn’t mean you will be hurt every-time you try to make friends.
