After doing some heartfelt thinking over the past months about lost relationships I decided that I needed to take the time to thank those of you who have been there for me throughout different periods of my life. This isn’t going to be a long overdrawn thing going into full detail about each of the people who have come in and out of my life…cause honestly, that would take FOREVER to write. I just wanted to write a little something to you all so that you know how much I appreciated your friendship. So anyway, here it goes!
After losing a few good friends over the past couple years I got to thinking about relationships and the point of being friends with someone if they were just going to “disappear” out of your life eventually. Then I began thinking about certain situations I have been in; different things going on either at home, work, or with my significant others, and all of the people who have been there for me through these difficult times. The more I thought about it, the more I came to realize that people come into our lives for a reason. At least in my case, they have come in to my life to comfort me, to listen to me, to help me move on and to help me find happiness again. Some friends have been there to remind me that God is there for me and that I need to turn to him in times of trouble. Others have helped me by just being there to hang out. No matter what they did for me, whether they meant to or not, I am extremely grateful. I have made it through those difficult times because of all of those people who took the time to care about me. Sometimes a person just needs to know they aren’t alone. To know that someone out there cares. It’s the little things like getting a text that says, “Have a great day!” or even telling you, “I’m here if you need to talk.” It’s the things like that that get to me. I don’t know what I would have done without all of those friends, even if they have become an “old” friend or are just now coming in to my life. I have treasured our relationship no matter how long it was or will be.
Friends are like our own personal lifesavers. I can only hope that someone, if not me, can be there for them when they need it.<3
So thank you to anyone who has ever taken the time to reach out to me. You have no idea how much it means to me that people care. After many years of struggling with different things, it feels good to know that I will never be alone. You all have helped me through life, and I love you for that. Keep being there for me, and I will do the same for you! And if we aren’t friends anymore…send me a message, say hi! All of this thinking about missing people makes me wish we were all still friends. I could always use a good chat, let’s catch up!
