Hello Friend (you know who you are),
I need to tell you thanks. Thanks for listening to me talk for hours about life, love, confusion. Thanks for listening to my ramblings and for helping me come to a proper conclusion. Thanks for listening to me cry and scream. Thank you for just being there for me.
I know I may seem needy and you will roll your eyes at the thought of helping me out. I know there are days when you just want to squeeze my shoulders tightly and shake me. Fuck, maybe you should sometimes. You talk to me about anything and everything, you never get tired. I can’t tell you enough how much that means to me because in my head I even tell myself to shut up about it, to just leave it to myself. I am grateful that I have someone like you in my life, someone who I can run to when everything seems dark. You have been my safe place and nothing you ever do will ever go unnoticed.
So, thanks for staying up late to talk to me. For letting me send you screenshots of messages, of emails. Thank you for reassuring my own thoughts and settling my mind. my heart. Thank you for being one of my biggest supporters. Thank you, mostly, for being the brutal truth – you never sugar coat anything and that is what I like about you.
Thank you for giving me advice and telling me what I deserve, even when I can’t seem to make it stick. Thank you for keeping me on track and keeping me from making the mistakes that were bound to happen – and even if they happen, you just shrug it off and give me room to learn.
Thank you for putting me back together when I have fallen apart. Thank you for not walking away like so many others have. You have stuck by me, no matter what. I appreciate that you have.
Thank you for being the representation of a love and relationship that we all deserve to have. You are one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Despite everything, you are still here – we are growing together. Please know, that whatever you need in this lifetime, I am your person. I love you. I hold our friendship on the highest platform. I will always have your back.
