To the friends I haven't seen in a while,
I miss you. I know we used to text about every little thing, but now life has gotten in the way. That is not to say I don't want to hear about the newest boy drama and crazy going out stories. I love catching up, it's like no time has passed. Just because we went down different paths doesn't mean we can't talk anymore.
When I see you, I am reminded of my childhood. I am reminded of the growth I have achieved. You helped change me into the person I am today, you make me better. We may be adults now but we act as carefree as when we were in middle school. I miss doing outrageous things together. Nevertheless, just as we have matured, our relationship has transformed as well.
I look back on all of the years we spent laughing and taking ridiculous selfies with fondness. Our friendship has always meant a lot to me and I want you to know I'll be forever grateful for your presence in my life. All the time, I see things that remind me of you and remind me of how long we have not spoken. Then, I get this anxious feeling that is only soothed when I text you out of the blue. I feel better after those conversations, I know you still care.
You keep me grounded.
I know you will call me out when I need it. If there is ever a time when you need a friend, confidant or someone to kick you in the butt, you know I am here for you. Wherever life takes us, I will still be here, cheering you on and being your biggest supporter. There are so many times we could have stopped keeping in contact and I hope we never reach that point. Life has a way of bringing people into your life that you need I still need you.
Thank you for being my forever friend. I can't wait to pick up right where we left off when I see you next.
