So for context i’m 22. I’m in college & I figured trying the whole writing to an inmate thing would be interesting and out of my
I rented a P.O. box for safety purposes & didn’t mention it to my family. However, despite sending a couple of letters using my p.o. box, one letter was recently sent back to my family’s p.o. box with my name under it.
I feel stupid because I didn’t realize that could happen. I lied and said i’m doing it for research purposes, but because I don’t want to hide it from them anymore, I’d rather just cut contact with the pen pal that sent it to the my family’s p.o. box. They’re strict and religious, so I don’t want to push their buttons with this.
Does this seem rationale to cut contact and ghost? I feel bad for initiating it in the first place, but i’d rather not be in trouble for it & not waste anyone’s time anymore with it. My family’s reaction to it was normal ( as in why I’d do something like it), but this whole thing has been bothering me. What should I do?
