Before I declare to you of these important matters, you must know that I respected you and looked at you as some sort of role model. Why do I say this in past tense? I say it in past tense because my perspective of you, a man who I thought was a dreamer with hopes, has deteriorated. When you spoke to me about your foolish hopes to get Daisy, a woman whom youâ€™ve desired so much, I thought you were going crazy. Money has never actually bought happiness. It is a statement known to mankind, and thatâ€™s what you are trying to do with Daisy. All the things youâ€™ve done in your life, such as becoming rich, travel through Europe, getting into illegal businesses, and learned how both social classes work; youâ€™ve done it for Daisy. Why do it for her? You have so much potential ...view middle of the document...
That is her true love. She thinks that makes her happy and you are trying to buy that happiness for yourself thinking that she will love you. If Daisy were to leave Tom for the likes of you, then Daisy would only be in love with your money. DaisyÂ´s love was bought by a$30,000 pearl necklace that Tom gave her. That is a proof to you that Daisy fell in love with TomÂ´s money. What makes you think she will not do it with you?
Gatsby, as a friend I must show you the real world. You are a dreamer of shattered hopes. You are not afraid to be corrupt to get what you want. When you wanted money, you were more than willing to become a bootlegger. Your drive is what makes you, good and bad. And it is this drive that will end up ruining your life. Stop and turn around before you regret it. You have always viewed Daisy as something you must have. Youâ€™ve viewed a future with Daisy that is apparent to happen. The reality is that Daisy wonâ€™t leave Tom for a bootlegger.
Do not forget that Tom is in the way between you and Daisy. Tom, being a powerful and influential man in society, will not permit you to have Daisy. That will make him look weak and may lose respect. As youâ€™ve noticed Tom and DaisyÂ´s marriage is a fake one. Daisy does not love Tom, she only wants his money. And Tom doesnâ€™t love Daisy. He has a mistress that proves that he is not satisfied with Daisy. Tom would do anything to prevent you from getting Daisy. And when I mean anything, I mean even death.
Gatsby, think about what you are doing. For every action there is a consequence. Get down from that cloud and view reality. Daisy will never love you for who you are. She will just love your money and fake interest in you. It is up to you to decide what you want. Be wise about your decision. You can avoid all this drama and just walk away. You wonâ€™t be able to buy DaisyÂ´s love towards you with money or any other possible way.
