An Open Letter To A Friend Who Has Lost Someone

An Open Letter To A Friend Who Has Lost Someone

I know that life is hard, and sometimes it has to get worse before it gets better, but you are endlessly positive and it baffles me.

Hey there,

I can’t tell you that I know what you’re going through, and I don’t know if I ever will. I know that nothing and no one could ever fill the empty space you feel in your heart. The only thing I know for sure is that I’ll be here to fill the cracks of your broken heart whenever I can.

Something I’m not about to do is tell you I understand how you feel, because I don’t. What I am going to do, however, is tell you what I know without a doubt.

I know that you are an immensely courageous and strong person. Sometimes it’s harder to be strong for yourself, and easier to be strong for those around you. I know this to be true from the situations you’ve helped me through.

I know that all of the things you’ve been through in no way define you.

I (don’t) know what I did to deserve such a caring and supportive person in my life. In the short time I’ve known you, you’ve stood by my side no matter what, and that’s because you know that sometimes company can share some of the pain.

I know that your personality is a light in the lives of everyone who knows you.

I know that life is hard, and sometimes it has to get worse before it gets better, but you are endlessly positive and it baffles me.

You’ve done so much for me, and this is just a simple, short letter that you can read when you feel like giving up. Then you can promptly call me right after that happens, because I want to be there for you like you’ve done for me.

So I guess that’s it.

I love you, and I will always be so blessed to have you in my life. Thank you.

Love,

Meg
