Julian: You picked your sister like you said
and when you wrote down this letter and started reading it, it felt like you were the one
who felt like you were in the wrong. Is that accurate?
Participant 1: Yeah. Julian: What would you say is the tension
between you and your sister right now? P1: The tension could be described as lack
of communication. Julian: Has it been communicated to you though
that this has upset her in some way? P1: It probably has but honestly right now
I just, you feel it. A lot of times it feels like an effort to try and confide in each
other. We’re brother and sister, it doesn’t have to be that way. Finding the right moment,
this was set up, it was explained to me to talk to the mirror but if you were to put
my sister right there it would a hell of a lot harder. Suddenly the tension is like right
there. Do I want to call her? Um, the problem being I’m out of battery on my phone.
Alright yeah, why not. Sister: Hello?
P1: Alright where are you, are you outside? Can you hear me clearly?
Sister: Yes. P1: So, real quick. I’m currently being videotaped
for a Youtube channel it’s Rainn Wilson’s Youtube channel it’s called SoulPancake. They
basically did a little survey regarding feelings about forgiveness. They asked me to write
about someone who was like important to me and I wanted to talk to about. So I thought
of you and I’m supposed to read this letter to you. Okay?
Sister: Okay. P1: Alright so just bear with me while I read this.
Sister: Wait am I on video? P1: You’re not on video, just your voice.
Okay? Sister: What am I supposed to say?
P1: You just got to listen! You don’t have to say anything. Okay? For my sister Kelsey.
I wish I had made more of an effort to be a part of your life. It’s not that I think
I could have changed you for the better because you’re already as good as it gets. I hold
you in my heart as one of the smartest, funniest, most talented people I know. However now that
I’m in Los Angeles, thousands of miles away from home. I’m afraid I’ll never have as great
of a chance to help you through life’s challenges as I did these last 21 years. I want to make
it a point from here on out to stay in as close touch as possible and I want you to
know that I care about you and I’m always thinking about you and if there’s ever anything
you need from me, I’ll be here for you. And above all I want you to know for a fact that
we both have all the love and support in the world. Our mom, our dad, our grandparents,
our great-grandmother, our aunts, our uncles, our cousins, and our friends. And so long
as you know that you should have all the confidence in the world that everything is going to turn
out just fine. So let’s embrace the struggles of life together so that we can make the best
of anything that may come our way. And that’s it.
She’s stronger than I am so she’s not crying probably. Sister: Thank you. P1: No problem. Alright so I miss you guys
and I love you very much. Sister: Love you too.
P1: I’ll talk to you soon. Sister: Alright.
P1: Alright? Sister: Okay bye.
P1: I’ll talk to you later, bye. And that’s it. SoulPancake
