Email 1 - One day I met one of my friends and he looked completely devastated. I knew a bit about his problem – sometime ago he overstepped the line and now suffered from the consequences. There was not much I could do to help him. I wished to be able to at least talk to him, but even it was not possible. I also knew that I will not see him or hear from him for weeks. It is how my Imaginary Friend took the personality of the friend and it is what I wrote to him to cheer him up.
Email 2 - One of my good friends went for holidays for a few weeks and somehow it introduced some emptiness into my life. Therefore I decided to write an email to him and to tell him what was happening in my life in the time he was away. It includes also some of my thoughts about marriage, friendship between man and woman, and gossips.
Email 3 - One time a man was telling me story how he was unfaithful to his wife, how he admitted to her about his affair and how much he regretted being unfaithful. He also told me how his wife reacted and what he went through after admitting to the mistake. In some respect he regretted that he told his wife the truth. This was the inspiration for the next letter I wrote to my imaginary friend.
Email 4 - My story - this is a story about my relationship which broke my heart... I wrote it to cheer up one of my friends whose relationship got on a shaky ground, broke his heart and put him in a very bad emotional state. In this email I am practically saying that it does not matter what happens in our life, time will allay the pain.
Email 5 - The previous email (email 4) was an email I sent to a fried and I got a replay. This email is like a continuation of the previous one.
Email 6 - Just a loose email to my imaginary friend talking about my week and adventure with my car which broke on the way to work. To make it look more like email to somebody I included some thoughts which came from random discussions at work.
Email 7 - In this letter I am telling my Imaginary Friend a bit about my travels and about how sometimes I miss my gypsy-like life-style that I used to have. I also mention a bit about my husband. And towards the end of the email I am telling him my thoughts about a comment a friend made to me that he was too weak to talk to somebody about his problems.
Email 8 - One day I got an email from a very dear friend who was talking a bit about his problems – at work and in his personal life including alcohol misuse. In this letter I am referring to the comments of my friend and writing my thoughts to the different points.
Email 9 - Inspiration for this email were multiple people whom I met during the week and they talk about different topics. Somebody talked about travels, somebody else about planning and decision making, and some friend about his emotional issues in regards to his marriage. I put it all together as if my imaginary friend had all this issues and wrote him a letter about my experiences to cheer him up.
Email 10 - I read on a blog comment made by a man who was complaining about his work affecting his life, sleepless nights and broken heart. My Imaginary Friend took the role of this person and it is what I wrote to cheer him up.
Email 11 - My Dog – as a teenager I had a dog I was attached to very much. This dog was the only friend I had and it was my entire world. I had a special connection with the dog. And one day I almost lost her – this is the story how miraculously she survived.
Email 12 -I met a work colleague who yesterday was very depressed and down because of a money issue, today however he was in a much better mood and very optimistic (probably also because having a day off). It was nice to see him so cheered up and it inspired me to write a short letter to my Imaginary Friend.
Email 13 - One of my friends, who at that time was going through emotional "roller coaster", sent me few short messages in which he was telling me about his dreams and that people often laugh about him and his dreams. To cheer him up I wrote an email where I wrote how people were laughing at my dreams, but now, I am living my dream and they are... calling me lucky. Never ever doubt in yourself!
Email 14 - For years I believed that I have my emotions perfectly under control and nothing is able to get me out of my composure. However, it turned out to not be quite as I thought... A friend took me for lunch and... got me completely out of my comfort zone. This is what I wrote to my friend after the lunch.
Email 15 - After the lunch yesterday (see email 14) I was still excited and decided to write another email to my Imaginary Friend telling him what happened after I arrived home and showed the white rose to my husband. I also told him something about myself and my experience in “behaving like a woman”.
Email 16 - One of my friends was telling me a lot about his problems and personal life. At some point he got a bit disquiet that I might discuss all his issues with my husband, which would make him feel uncomfortable and embarrassed. Men usually like to be seen as very strong and without much feelings. In this letter I am assuring my Imaginary Friend, that I do not discuss his problems with my husband. I also tell a funny story how one time my mum got me very embarrassed, and few other thoughts which I had during the day.
Email 17 - I heard people talking about money and happiness. Some gossip-magazine was talking again about some superstar who made financial mistakes and got forced to sell their multi-million dollars house. It seemed to me like everybody believes that if we have enough money, then we will be happy. Without money we cannot be really happy. And also how easily we get influenced by others, not really listening to our heart, what we really want. In this email I wrote my thoughts about this.
Email 18 - One day I went for a walk with a friend and somehow it reminded me on my past, the times when I was with the man I loved very much, on the very romantic and priceless times. This brought some feelings up which I completely forgot I could have and all the old days were like today. And so I decided to write a romantic letter to my Imaginary Friend as, at the end, now he is the perfect man for me – he loves me and accepts me as I am and I love him too.
Email 19 - I got an email from a friend who again was depressed and felt bed because he again reached to the bottle to solve his problems. I wrote a short message to my friend to cheer him up. I also catched up with other friend which I think missunderstands my friendship ... I mixed up the two situations together and I put my Imaginary Friend into the situation of my real friends and it is what I wrote to my Imaginary Friend to cheer him up and give him the feeling that he is loved.
Email 20 - One day with my husband we went for long weekend away. In this email, I am telling my Imaginary Friend about the experience. And also talking a bit about my husband, his negative attitude to life, and a marriage. My husband is not a very romantic person, actually extremely practical. To add some romantic touch to this email I am telling my Imaginary Friend how good and safe he makes me feel and I am happy to have him.
Email 21 - One day I caught up with a friend for a chat. It was not the best for me as our conversation turned out to be very awkward and I got very embarrassed. Nevertheless during our conversation we touched on few interesting topics. I remembered how one day I wanted to break contact with my best friend and how he did not give up on me for what I am very thankful. We also talked how careful we have to be when we read a message not knowing who when and why wrote it as our interpretation can be very wrong. My Imaginary Friend took the personality of the friend with whom we had the discussion and it is what I wrote to him.
Email 22 - Recently one of my friends went through quite a lot in life because of... love. What had happen left him in a very confused and unstable state. Because of my experience in life I can understands his feelings perfectly. I also realised that some of my comments in previous email could be misunderstood and therefore I try to explain it a bit better in this letter. In this email to my Imaginary Friend I am talking about love and about our relationship as friends. And to make this email more casual I am also talking about my weekend - shopping therapy of my husband, working on the farms and building yards and of course playing with my lovely dog.
Email 23 - One of my friends broke up with his girlfriend whom he loved very much, but unfortunately his circumstances did not allowed him to continue with the relationship. He was devastated. I knew the woman of his dreams. One day my friend asked me to write to him about my meeting with her. Actually he was very embarrassed because of the asking. For me, however, it is not something that he needs to be embarrassed of. I can perfectly understand the need of talking about the loved one we lose as some time ago I was myself in a similar situation. In this letter to my Imaginary Friend I am writing about my need to talk when my partner walked away from me and also about my experience with the girl in question.
Email 24 - Few things happened during the last few days. I called one of my friends, but somehow I was very official on the phone (I hate talking on the phone) and at the end it made me feel bad. Somebody was telling me that she misses her mum who passed away and wrote her letter, which actually seems to be a ridiculous think to do. My other friend still suffers because of the separation from his beloved girlfriend and has difficulties to overcome the loss. In this letter to my Imaginary Friend I am apologising for being unfriendly on the phone and I talk about my experiences in writing letters which never will sent. I am talking about how I dealt with loss of family member and about my everyday life on the farm. I also try to cheer up a bit my broken-hearted friend.

Email 30 - One day I was looking back on my life and thinking how my believes changed over the years. How the rules which were put on me by society broke and how my values in life strengthen. How I developed my own rules based on ethics and how I became really free. This is the topic of this email to my Imaginary Friend.
Email 31 - One day with one of my friends we were talking about trust, how important is for us trust and how we want others to trust us. My understanding of trust is the topic of this email to my Imaginary Friend. I am describing how I believe that before others can trust us we have to trust ourselves. And trusting ourselves is not hiding from from problems or emotions but facing them and solving them. I am talking about how, many years ago, I did not want to face the reality as it was and I was actually cheating myself. I also talk about 'feeling guilty' and how it is actually our perception and not others blaming us or making us feel guilty. This email got interrupted by other circumstances in my life and therefore never got completely finished.
Email 32 - Good Bye - One of my friends decided to break the contact with me. It was a bit surprising, though taking into account his mental stage I should and in some respect I did expect it. Nevertheless it hurt me a bit and it is what I wrote to my Imaginary Friend as if he said the Good Bye to me.
Email 33 - No, I cannot say Good Bye, just see you later when the time is right... In the previous email (Email 32) I said Good Bye to my Imaginary Friend, but obviously I cannot say “Good Bye” as it would finish our correspondence and it would bring the website to an end. Therefore I had to find a way to get back to my Imaginary Friend and I wrote him another email in which I talk a bit about the importance of getting our emotions under control, understand ourselves and how I in my difficult times and emotional up-and-downs realised that I was actually cheating myself... I added a bit of “romantic touch” to this email to show my Imaginary Friend that I am OK, but I really miss him as a friend.
Email 34 - In this email to my Imaginary Friend I am shortly mentioning preparation for Xmas in my home and how I am actually not in a Xmas mood at all. I also describe one of my Xmas which on one hand were the worst Xmas ever, but on the other hand I remember them as one of the best times I have ever had. It was on my way to Tasmania, when I travelled on my motorbike by myself.
Email 35 - My Xmas this year was not the best. I was not in a good mood. My husband tried his best, but he likes complaining and worrying, so he was not very helpful in cheering me up. And at the end I had an accident working with the cattle. All this is the topic of my next email, the last email this year, to my imaginary friend.
