An Open Letter to the Bride from your bridesmaid

An Open Letter to the Bride from your bridesmaid

I am so honored to be apart of your big day


Dear soon to be bride,

You know who you are. You are my person. Like when Dr. Yang said "She's my person. If I murdered someone, she's the person I'd call to help me drag the corpse across the living room floor. She's my person." That is who you are to me. Recently you asked me a serious question. I know have a long list of people who you could have asked but you picked me to be one. You asked me to be a bridesmaid, and how on Earth could I say no.

I can't wait for that for the day you walk down that all beautiful and happy. I get the privilege to stand right next to you. I love you so much, girl. You are family and we are part of a big crazy family but that's why we have each other to keep each other sain.

There are many things I want to say but how to put them into words. Like how you are one of the strongest people I know. I love how on Thursday nights we are sitting on the couch together watching Grey's Anatomy, how in each other's phone contact as "MY PERSON", or the moments you ask for advice on a topic I have no clue on but I try and we laugh about it later.

They say God made us cousins because our parents couldn't handle us as sisters.

So I just wanted to say I love you and will always be on your side if you need a friend, a person, or a shoulder to lean on I will be there.

Just Because I'm Not In Love Doesn't Mean I Haven't Loved

I have given more love then you would know


I know in the world there are about 8 billion people on this Earth. I know I am not the one who is single, or single and virgin, and I am okay taking my time waiting for "The One." I am 22 and I have never really been in a relationship. I have given people chance after chance, but they all lose my trust. They are fine until they try to push you to do things I am not comfortable with. I know how I should be treated, and if you don't agree you are free to leave, because in the end I know what is right and I don't need you in my life.

I have learned to not openly trust the people who come into your life. In my life, I have noticed the more you trust someone the more they are going to hurt you. You can tell them everything and the next thing you know they are either holding it over you for the rest of your life or walking out of your life.

Know your limits, don't let people push you to do something you will regret later down the road. I'll be one to say I regret my first kiss, it just felt rushed even though I knew the person, it just didn't feel right. I shouldn't have done it, but I can't change the past.

I have also learned to love yourself first, before love another. For the longest time, I hated my body from my look to my weight. It takes time to regain that confidence, it has taken me years, but it's completely fine to take some time and focus on yourself. Do the things that you love and take care of things you need to take care of before having to take care of a relationship.

What I can say is I love my family, every phone call ends with "I Love You." We embarrass each other and can laugh it off later. We stick by each other when things go wrong. I love my friends, the ones who have stuck by my side for years and not running out when things got bad or when we went our separate ways. I have love for the pets that come into my life and when they leave it crushes me. I have given so much, and you cannot look me in the eye and tell me differently.

I am going to continue to love with all I have.
