Jiah wrote to her boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi in this: “I don’t know how to say this, but I should say it now because I have nothing left.” Everything has already been lost to me. If you’re reading this, I’ve either left the world or am about to leave. I’m broken on the inside. You may not realize it, but you have had such an impact on me that I have lost myself in the process of loving you. Regardless, you tortured me every day. I can’t see any light these days and don’t want to get out of bed in the morning. I used to see my life and future with you, but you shattered my dreams. I’m embarrassed to be dead. I’ve never trusted anyone or cared so much about anyone. You’ve returned my love with deception and lies. No matter how many gifts I gave you or how many lovely things I thought of for you. I was terrified of becoming pregnant, but I surrendered to you. My soul has been eroded by the pain you have inflicted on me every day. I’m unable to eat, sleep, or think. I’m trying to get away from everything. My career is no longer important to me.”
“I was very disciplined and serious about my career when I met you.” I fell in love with you because I thought it would make me better. I’m not sure what brought us together. I do not deserve the pain, rape, abuse, or torture I have endured. I don’t see any love or promise coming from you. I’m just afraid you’ll torture me both mentally and physically. Your life consists solely of girls and parties, while mine consists solely of you and work. If I stay here, I’ll miss you and yearn for you. So I’m saying goodbye to my ten-year career and dreams. Goodbye.”
“I never told you, but I received a message that you were cheating on me.” I ignored him and put my faith in you. You made me feel bad. I never went on any dates. I am a trustworthy individual. I just wanted to make you feel what you make me feel by being with Kartik. No woman will ever love you as much as I did. I can write it in blood. You haven’t even met my sister, despite the fact that I gave her a gift. “You tore my soul.”
“I have no reason to live. I only desired love. My future was ruined, and my dreams were dashed. I wanted to use whatever little money I had for your benefit. You smacked me across the face. I no longer have faith. You took everything I had. You haven’t even called me in ten days. My birthday present was a trip to Goa. Despite the fact that you cheated on me, I spent money on you.”
“I dropped my child.” When I came, you ruined my Christmas and birthday dinners, whereas I used to make your birthday special. You avoided me on Valentine’s Day. You stated that you would propose to me after a year. I wish you loved me as much as I loved you. Now all I want to do is sleep and never wake up. “I am much more than that.”
