Dear Old Friend,
Here's to a new road ahead of you. You are more smarter and more kind than you have ever been before. You accept others compliments now and you see the brighter side of life.
This Monday, you are starting a brand new college. And I have to admit, it's very scary stuff while still being very exciting. You've been excited for this day, but also dreading it. You're extremely close to your family and know that you will be homesick when away from them. You know that this is a good change, however, and are proud that you have made it this far. You are more independent than you and braver than you dreamed.
Do you remember when you were afraid others would leave if you got to close? Those worries are far behind you. You have friends that care about you to no end. You never have to worry about putting your emotions upfront. More importantly, you see that it's okay to be your own best friend and to cheer yourself on.
As you continue on to college, I hope that you see that there is time to grow, there is time to love, and a time to prosper. You have given a lot of yourself to past friendships while you left yourself needing support. Please now, use this time to care about your own wellbeing and to bring upon your own happiness. I'm rooting for you in this new college experience.
You...I mean I love you for who you are and that you will be. It's hard to write this down, but you need to know that this adventure is good for you and that you will overcome it.
A New You
