To My Ex Best Friend, I'm Glad That We Got To Be Friends

It'll always be sad that we weren't best friends "forever" but it's amazing that we got to be best friends at all.


Dear ex-best friend,

When I think of you, happy memories automatically come into mind. I think of countless sleepovers consisting of secrets and crushes. I think of listening to Hannah Montana songs and discussing our fears about high school. Most of all, I think of how lucky I felt to have had a best friend like you. You were someone who was always there and always lifted my head.

But things changed. Toward the end of middle school, a big argument broke out between us. Sure, we recovered from it as all best friends do, but I knew it dented our friendship. The drama kept on piling on. It was one thing after another. We changed. I was discovering a whole new group of friends while you reconnected with your old one.

I fell into clubs and activities that you didn't want to do and vice versa. Our paths intertwined less and less. And I noticed that, but at the time, I didn't realize exactly how much it hurt.

I'm sorry we didn't last. I'm sorry for my mistakes. I'm sorry. But this is how it was meant to be. I know I'm happy in life and that you are too. We aren't bitter towards each other, which I am so grateful for. Yes, it hurts to think about our past but it's in the best way possible. It'll always be sad that we weren't best friends "forever" but it's amazing that we got to be best friends at all.

I want to say thank you for the friendship we used to have. You were always a steady rock in the midst of my crazy life. You kept me positive and grounded. I know I am partially who I am today because of you and what we had.

I hope life treats you well and that you'll smile while looking at old photos of us. I know I will.

What Does A Rainbow Symbolize To You?

Yeah, rainbows are pretty and they make really cool pictures...but did you know rainbows actually symbolize something other than a few likes on Instagram? And no, it is not to follow the gold.


A rainbow is defined, according to Merriam-Webster, as an arch of colors formed in the sky in certain circumstances, caused by the refraction and dispersion of the sun's light by rain or other water droplets in the atmosphere.

But in the Bible, it is defined as a promise to all life on earth. After Noah built his ark and the great flood, God made a covenant with Noah. He would never destroy the world with a flood again. The Bible says the rainbow appears on the earth after the rain. Clouds did not appear before the flood but after the flood. God's beautiful design for a rainbow requires rain and clouds.

The rainbow symbolizes God's mercy and love that He has for us. So whenever you see a rainbow and snap your picture, just remember that God loves you and he is looking over you with His bow in the clouds.

"And I establish My covenant with you, and all flesh shall never again be cut off by the water of the flood, neither shall there again be a flood to destroy the earth. And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant which I am making between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all successive generations; I set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth.

And it shall come about, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud, and I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and never again shall the water become a flood to destroy all flesh." Genesis 9:11-15
