Here are some of the many emails and messages I’ve received.

“I just wanted to let you know that your writing really touched me, it was very heartfelt and reminded me a lot of myself and my past relationship. Even after several years, reading something like this is tranquility to my heart and mind so I wanted to say thanks and keep up the great work.”

“hey read that article. im sure you’re getting a lot of shit for how it portrays women and stuff like that and i imagine its somewhat warranted, but honestly people will talk shit about anything these days. just wanted to say that you should always keep writing and expressing yourself and it takes a lot of guts to put it out there. just keep doing you”

“That was so brilliant. I know youre probably hearing this from everyone considering it has gone viral. But that was soo deep. I was VERY impressed. It really took me to where I could really like vision this guy and imagine him and you and how detailed and animated you were about his tendencies and the way he like sleeps even. You seem very observant but just for the fact that I could go so deep that I imagined everything as you told it in the story…It just blew my mind…I mean your article is every girls story of their life……Some even guys. So many girls wish they could even have the guts or brains to write something that beautIful.”

“I’m sorry i don’t mean to be weird but i just read your article the other woman. just wanted to say that was the best piece of writing i think I’ve ever read. you have an amazing talent.”

“I know I don’t know you, but you are a solid 10.

“i just wanted to tell you “to the girl that replaced me ” is one of the mosy empathetic and viceral feelings of alchemical positivity i have read in a long time”

“There is an air of innocence that touches everyone you meet.”

“The reason I found you on Facebook and write to you now, is not merely because of the talent you possess… but because of the honesty I found in your piece.”

“Thank you for that amazing article on Elite Daily. It really made me consider a lot in regards to how I treat my exes. I have this condition where I’m a wonderful boyfriend but a HORRIBLE ex- I’m not friends with, nor do I contact, any one of my ex’s. It was an eye opener and made me really think. Thank you for the thought provoking words..officially a fan of Elite Daily because of YOU.”

“Hi! Good day Miss Kirsten Corley, I have read some of the articles that you write and it inspires me to continue to write. :)”

“You are the kind of a writer who is able to communicate heart to heart with her readers, and this is a gift. I so enjoyed reading the two pieces you shared with me here. Well done! Am I surprised that you continue to write with honesty and courage? Am I shocked that you are a kind human being with the capacity for depth of thought? Not at all. I am so very proud of you, Kir.”

“All those articles are brilliant Kirsten. I like reading the stuff u post and write because it makes me think about the topic in a way I probably wouldn’t bc I’m a guy. I can relate to a lot of the content, not because I went thru the same thing or thought the exact same way, but very similar. I think it’s a very good thing to acknowledge that maybe you should’ve/ would’ve/ could’ve done things differently. And turning that into a positive seems like the hardest thing in the world…. But when I read what u write it provides a sense of great relief. But, it’s because you find solace in knowing that the person you were with can grow an do whatever it is that makes them happy, without holding them back bc it’s what makes u feel better at the time. It may be painful, but the more pain u suffer through, the more u realize how much that person mattered to you. And u also learn that if u ever feel that way about anyone else again, to try your hardest and give it ur all to keep them there because u never want to feel that pain again. I’ve thought along these lines for a while now, but your words put it all into perspective for me and I hope they allow u to do that for others. U deserve it. And so do we. Love ya beautiful”

“Thank you for saying the things I wasn’t able to”

“The one you posted today totally hit home and just wanted to say thanks for putting on paper what i couldnt say or write myself. you’re totally right and we all need to learn that! keep it up and im excited to read more.”

“Hey Kirsten, I know this may come off as strange but I just have to tell you- I absolutely adore your writing. So many times I find myself saving links in my notes to refer back to when I’m feeling down. As an aspiring writer myself, it’s beautiful to see how words can truly help a person. Thank you for writing, and I’m looking forward to reading many more of your works.”

“So I just want to say thank you for helping me feel like I’m not alone and made the right decision. Other people have lived in the weird in-between phase for years and the pain it causes is so hard to explain to people who haven’t experienced that, because there is no label, but everything else emotionally is there. So please keep writing to help other people like myself feel less alone and have hope that things will get better!”

“Not sure how I stumbled across your page, But it has all consumed me today, and made me cry at work, because so much on this page HIT me on a personal level… your words, the meanings, the depth, hit me.. I thank you for this page and the opportunity to connect with so much you have posted.”

“Thank you for putting your life out there, and helping me feel not so alone.”

“Thank you for your beautiful essay on those who overcome addiction. It deeply touched my soul.”

“I just read your article. To the Person who Overcame A Drug Addiction. Wow. I am a Mom who almost lost my oldest son twice to Heroin. I read this earlier today while I was out & cried. I am still teary eyed. You said everything that I have said to my child.”

“I was wondering if I could use some of your piece as my wedding vows.”

“Thank you for cutting through the emotional smoke and mirrors of this place, and let the simplicity and truth of the value and possibilities of love shine through it.”

“I don’t know if you have heard this before but I just read your goodbye letter to your toxic other half.. And I’m literally bawling. Every. Single. Word. I feel like future me wrote exactly everything you wrote in that letter. I feel like I wrote it because it’s everything I would have said but I’m too afraid to.”

“I just wanted to let you know this article tugged at my heart strings. Even though it’s written from a female perspective it still hits home. Keep writing, your audience may be bigger than you think.”

” I thought I was the only one who went through those things. It takes a weight off my shoulders knowing someone out there who even though they don’t know me, seems to put what I went through and what I go through and how I feel into words when I couldn’t because of how hurt I was.”

“Hi Kirsten! I know this is totally lame lol but I just wanted to tell you that quite a bit of your articles have hit home to me…. I know I’m a guy but they are very good and look forward to reading them!!! ”

“Thank you! Details on why are unnecessary, just know that I, as well as many others undoubtedly, appreciate you!”

    You are a brilliant writer who has the capability to put the jumbled thoughts in my head down on a piece of paper when I cant even get them out in any sort of coherent sentence, or even organize them in my own mind. The article on anxiety described perfectly all the things I could not and has helped me in ways you could not imagine. Thank you so much for your writing and I wish you all the success in the world
