365 days Writing Prompt: Shape up or ship out

Write a letter to the personality trait you like least, convincing it to shape up or ship out. Be as threatening , theatrical , or thoroughly charming as is necessary to get the job done.

D ear Cynic,

You have a lot going for you, you are smart,educated and have a beautiful family that some wish they could have,yet your dealings with the very people who helped you  reach where you are is deplorable. You are selfish, conceited these are traits I absolutely abhor, you think you’ll always have this life and you don’t have to make concessions for the people who are always there when you need them.

Let me bring you back to reality,there will come a time when all these people whom you are treating badly, will leave you and nothing you say or do will make any difference, they’d be so fed up they’ll even stay away from your shadow.

There is still time for you to mend your ways, you might still have some hope if you turn around and change for good. So either you make yourself presentable to others or my dear the clock is ticking, you may face a day when no one would come to your assistance.

Do not wait until that day!

Sincerely,

Well-wisher
