Dear friend,

You've heard the malicious gossip by now, and
Although I didn't start it, I must confess that
Several times I actively participated in it.

I've come to think you are very self-centered,
Since it seems like every time you talk about me,
You feel the need to also mention yourself!

Still, I write this now in guilt and distress.
I want you to know that I'm part of the solution
And not part of the overall larger problem.

Forgive me- I know you can identify with me, so
Think about the good times when we first met:
The sense of self-empowerment you had then!

Though I'm a pro, and I was in the top 10 in my class,
Oddly, I feel larger and more together when I'm alone.
When I'm around friends I feel small and disconnected.

In loving apology,
me


What wrote this apology letter?

The letter I

You've heard the malicious gossip by now, and
Although I didn't start it, I must confess that
Several times I actively participated in it.

I doesn't start "the malicious gossip," but is in the phrase 3 times

I've come to think you are very self-centered,
Since it seems like every time you talk about me,
You feel the need to also mention yourself!

You mention yourself == I think etc or general i, I confusion

Still, I write this now in guilt and distress.
I want you to know that I'm part of the solution
And not part of the overall larger problem.

I is in "guilt" and "distress," and is in "the solution," but not in "the overall larger problem"

Forgive me- I know you can identify with me, so
Think about the good times when we first met:
The sense of self-empowerment you had then!

I identify as I. (self empowerment referring to babies realizing they exist separate from the world sort of)

Though I'm a pro, and I was in the top 10 in my class,
Oddly, I feel larger and more together when I'm alone.
When I'm around friends I feel small and disconnected.

Pronoun is a professional noun apparently. 9th letter. I (larger and in one piece) is I but in words it's lowercase i (two parts --disconnected --, smaller).

So the true answer:

Going hamateur wrote it, cause I did.

  • $\begingroup$ "Though I'm a pro, and I was in the top 10 in my class, Oddly, I feel larger and more together when I'm alone. When I'm around friends I feel small and disconnected." was a big hint but for some reason I was thinking about it being eye. I think it was cause of "I know you can identify with me" $\endgroup$ – Going hamateur Aug 13 '15 at 16:52
