Hello friend…

 

First I wanted to say how it is an honor to be called your friend and be a part of your life. I love you and I am glad you are a part of my life even if is once in a while. I confess that I decided to be your friend by observing your actions. At first it was just a friendly relationship with potential for true friendship.

 

I also confess to have tested the type of friend you would be. Don’t ask how because I probably don’t remember because I have been doing it unconsciously for ages.  I would like to tell you why I wanted to be your friend and why I decided to have you in my life.

 

You shared parts of your history without a lot of effort. You listen to my stories and have never judged or shown pity towards me. You share aspects of your life and not by just telling me a story but by inviting me to be part of it. You have heard my stories of dark moments of my life and have not changed the way you treat me. You are a strong person that follows your heart. You have never underestimated me or ignored my advise. I value your advise and respect your opinions. We don’t have to understand to be able to respect each other’s positions.

 

You don’t bring me any extra drama to my life which makes me love you even more. You trust me with your problems and I with mine. You never wish bad things to happen to those around you even when you stop liking them. You know that I never have malice with my actions. You work hard for those you love more than for yourself. You accept my criticism and honesty without getting offended but with open mind. You did not treat me differently after I told you dark parts of my life. 

 

I have seen you been thrown down and get up like a tornado going after your goal no matter what gets in your way. You have always been there for me even when I have my silent periods. Your not self centered or entitled. The way you love those around you  is one of your most beautiful qualities.

 

I chose my friends carefully. I look for a person that knows who they are. That has had real life experiences and not made up ones. I chose friends that appreciate the small things in life and don’t obsess over silly things. I chose friends that will call me out if im being stupid and tell me when I’m doing something well. Thanks for not treating me like I’m stupid when I have my off days.

 

My dear friend I’m glad to be a part of your life and you of mine. I wanted to thank you for supporting me when I was down and let me do the same for you. I wanted to let you know that even if our lives drift apart you will always be a part of my heart and once in a while I will think of you. I really hope that your life is always filled with laughter and joy. I hope that you can always feel the love that those around you feel for you.

 

Know that you can always count on me like I know I can count on you. I trust you as you do me. Thanks for being my friend and a part of my life

 

With Love

Jey
