Friendship is tricky. It requires patience, acceptance, and an infinite amount of love. Sometimes I forget. Sometimes I feel others forget. This is my heart. I needed to say all of this. I’ve felt a bit loopy on the friend front recently, and I needed to get all of this out. It’s here as a reminder and a promise…
I promise you that I am always here. Sometimes what we have may require work, but if you’re willing to put in the effort, so am I.
I guarantee you that there is nothing that you can say that will make me love you less. You are the sum of many parts, and none of those parts make you unlovable.
When it comes to you, I’m Switzerland. Completely neutral. I’m a safe zone. It doesn’t matter what anyone else is saying, I will listen to you, hear you out, and do my best to support you.
As we grow and age, we will change. I promise to respect the changes you make, and not ask you to remain the person you were when we met.
I am not perfect. I will never claim to be so. I will do my best to accept fault when I hurt you, and I will endeavor to undo any harm I cause.
If you ever find yourself needing an ear to gab at or pour your soul out to, mine is available all day, every day. I would rather lose sleep than find out that you couldn’t find someone to talk to when you were in need of it.
I will do my best to treat you fairly. I will try my hardest to never judge you. I will do these things without expecting the same in return, because my friendship doesn’t have a price. It just is.
Know that you are loved. Know that you are thought of constantly. Even if we haven’t spoken in years, you are in my heart, and there will always be room for you there.
You make me better, and I’m grateful for that. Thank you for everything. Thank you for being you.
