Dear High School Clique,
You have no idea how much I miss you. We have now all gone our separate ways and I only see you guys every three months, if that. I just want you to know that no one can or will ever take your places as my best friends. I have been friends with each of you separately for as long as I can remember but the best times were when we all came together. Who would have thought it all would have started in our high school cafeteria?
We have been apart for almost seven months now. I remember before we all left we swore we would talk everyday and Facetime and that nothing would change because of distance. I hate to say it but we were wrong. Between classes, clubs, greek life and making new friends, the texts and calls and snapchats just didn’t seem as important anymore. We're moving along our perspective paths.
But you know what? That’s okay because each time we do talk it becomes that much more special. You tell me about your new relationships and your new friends and all the activities you’ve taken part in. I couldn’t be happier for you guys. As much as I wish I could see you all everyday, I know deep down it's good that we don’t. We spent basically everyday together and now we are leaning to venture off on our own but I know when I need you, you guys are just a call away and will be there in a heartbeat whenever I need you. Besides, when we do see each other, we pick up right where we left off like no time had passed.
You guys think I say it all the time but I don’t think I say it enough: I love you. You all have shaped the person I am today. The person I am when I am with you is the person I always want to be. I can honestly say I don't know where I would be today if I didn't have you. You’ve taught me how to love, how to hate, how to understand, how to be myself and I can never repay you for that. No one in this world knows me better then you all know me. You knew me at my worst, you knew me at my best, you knew me when I went insane and still accepted and loved me. You’ve taught me loyalty, trust, friendship, wisdom and so many other life qualities that I might not have if it weren't for you. You pushed me to be my best even when I hit rock bottom, you push me to my highest potential everyday. You tell it to me straight, you never beat around the bush, no matter how I might react or sparing any feelings. When you tell me i'm wrong, which is rare so you like to shove it in my face, you tell me how to fix whatever I was wrong about. I am eternally grateful for all of that.
I scroll through pictures and reminisce on our past and all I can do is smile. I smile because I see how young we started out together and I know we will be those crazy grandparents that get our old Ninja Turtle shirts out, that probably barely fit us, and all meet up at my house just to watch a chick flick on a Friday night. I don't know what each of our futures hold, but I know our friendship will always be in it.
New friends will come and go but you all will always have a special place in my heart that no one can ever take away. You’re stuck with me!
Love you guys, xoxo.
