    Is it a good idea to sent this Christmas Card to the person(s) who fired me?

    As some of you may know from other threads, I was fired from a job on May 26, 2011. I was thinking of sending a Christmas Card to the four suspects who made the decision to fire me. The Question I have is: Is it a good idea to send a Christmas Card to the person(s) who fired me with the following wording?

As odd as it may seem, the broadening of my life experience through this event is something that causes me to be grateful. Although the pain and anger was often times unbearable, over time these wounds have healed. I have tried with great futility to explain and understand what happened to bring my life to such disaster. I learned many things about myself and about my work ethic during my time of employ. I know that life holds a healthy amount of chaos. Some of the details relating to this situation will forever remain a mystery. It is with deep regret that these lessons were learned the hard way. I have no doubt that I am more mature and more developed as a decent contributing member of society. Since my departure I have made many outstanding accomplishments such as graduating from college, publishing a book, running for public office, enjoying a trip to Disneyland with my family and finding a job where I have excelled. I do apologize for any unpleasant feelings that I have invoked because of my actions. I do wish you the best and hope that you harbor no ill feelings toward me because I most certainly hold no ill feelings toward you. May your holidays and the New Year ahead be filled with great peace and abundant joy. Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to work for you. Again, I do apologize for any and all unpleasantries that I have caused.

    With the deepest of sincerity,

    vasuderatorrent

    P.S. I apologize for sending this so late but I have been on a very long journey. God Bless!

    While appropriate for an "exit interview", immediately upon your departure, it is far too late for it to be a good idea today.

    I know you want closure, but it really can only cause problems. I would just bury it and move on. We all have to get over the stupid things we've done in life.

    2 years late? You're an idiot.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    I did ask for your opinion. I had to read between the lines but I think I know what you meant.

    It's probably not a good idea.

    My feelings were way different at the exit interview. If I wrote a sincere letter at that point it would have been much different.

    Usually it probably is not a good idea. It does depend on the circumstances though. If the company went down or closed the product line you were in?Why carry a grudge and you might have common interests again sometime.

    I'm trying to express the end of my grudge. Was I that off base with my intent?
