To My Chi O Sisters, Thank You For Filling Me With Joy

To My Chi O Sisters, Thank You For Filling Me With Joy

We put up with each other at 6 a.m. after a breakup, 2 a.m. for a chocolate chip waffle run.

Chi Omega is something I hold very close to my heart. I have spent a little over half a year with these amazing women and have encountered some of the most joyous, encouraging, high energy individuals I have ever met. This sisterhood is beyond special to me.

I can be in the worst mood of my life, but it is impossible to continue down the path of negativity when I am surrounded by a group of Chi O girls.

That being said, if I struggle with anything, lack motivation or need a little push--these are the women I run to.

The amount of genuine support and love I receive on a daily basis is very special, and I have never felt such an overwhelming amount of love and acceptance in my life.

I am very grateful to be in a sorority where every person I meet is so genuine and kind-hearted.

In high school, it would be impossible to stand in a single room and have such a high quantity of high-quality friendships that I have in my sorority.

Chi Omega honestly is my Utopia.

No matter how terrible life seems or how upset a situation makes me feel, the second I am in the presence of a sister my day immediately turns around.

Before joining this chapter I would have never guessed a single human being could literally transform my mood so quickly, but my friends truly are rock stars.

Sometimes I feel a little dull and lack inspiration. Sometimes it is extremely hard to push myself to get things done.

But I have so many incredible girls surrounding me that spend hours upon hours in the library, hold multiple leadership positions and responsibilities at once, and still, manage to succeed- so I can too!

If they can do something great, so can I. The inspiration constantly flows and I love it!

The energy in Chi Omega is beyond special.

My heart literally explodes with joy when I see my beautiful friends because I feel so thankful and lucky to know them.

Every girl I know in this chapter is so unique and beautiful and amazing for so many reasons. We are all so diverse but always come together to support each other until the very end, it makes my heart so happy.

We put up with each other at 6 a.m. after a breakup, 2 a.m. for a chocolate chip waffle run, or just after class to hit the gym together.

I can honestly say these girls fill me with so much joy and happiness and I do not know what I would do without them at this point in life.

It is only my freshman year and I cannot wait to see what the next three have in store for me because my times thus far have been nothing short of amazing.

To The Dad Who Didn't Want Me, It's Mutual Now

Thank you for leaving me because I am happy.

Thank you, for leaving me.

Thank you, for leaving me when I was little.

Thank you, for not putting me through the pain of watching you leave.

Thank you, for leaving me with the best mother a daughter could ask for.

I no longer resent you. I no longer feel anger towards you. I wondered for so long who I was. I thought that because I didn't know half of my blood that I was somehow missing something. I thought that who you were defined me. I was wrong. I am my own person. I am strong and capable and you have nothing to do with that. So thank you for leaving me.

In my most vulnerable of times, I struggled with the fact that you didn't want me. You could have watched me grow into the person that I have become, but you didn't. You had a choice to be in my life. I thought that the fact that my own father didn't want me spoke to my own worth. I was wrong. I am so worthy. I am deserving, and you have nothing to do with that. So thank you for leaving me.

You have missed so much. From my first dance to my first day of college, and you'll continue to miss everything. You won't see me graduate, you won't walk me down the aisle, and you won't get to see me follow my dreams. You'll never get that back, but I don't care anymore. What I have been through, and the struggles that I have faced have brought me to where I am today, and I can't complain. I go to a beautiful school, I have the best of friends, I have an amazing family, and that's all I really need.

Whoever you are, I hope you read this. I hope you understand that you have missed out on one of the best opportunities in your life. I could've been your daughter. I could have been your little girl. Now I am neither, nor will I ever be.

So thank you for leaving me because I am happy. I understand my self-worth, and I understand that you don't define me. You have made me stronger. You have helped make me who I am without even knowing it.

So, thank you for leaving me.

An Open Letter To The Friend Who Continues To Save My Life

No one knows me like you do.


From the day we became friends, we have always had nothing but support for one another. Although we have only really been friends for about seven years now, I feel as if you have always been a part of my life. You know me just as well as you know yourself, and I understand you in the same way I understand my own thoughts and feelings.

You have never made me feel pressured, insecure, or unappreciated. The mutual respect we have for one another is unmatched. We can talk to each other about anything; from some of the most trivial topics to entire life philosophies. We have grown and matured together, and I couldn't be more proud of the person you are today.

We don't always agree on everything, and I always appreciate your fresh point of view, but I have never felt more in sync with another person than I do with you. We share the same birth month, the same age, the same home town, the same anxieties, and many of the same attitudes and values.

I feel as if you know exactly when I want to be alone and when I need company. Since we are both introverted, we understand that the other person needs time to recharge. And when I'm sitting alone with nothing to do, I always get a text from you asking to hang out.

In some of my loneliest, most vulnerable moments, you have been there. When I question how many true friends I really have, you are always sure to make your love for me known.

Through high school, and now college, we have experienced so many life-changing events together. Some that have taught us extremely valuable lessons, and others that have shown us incredible pain and how to grow from our lowest moments.

I want to thank you for showing me what life-long friendship looks like. Thank you for always understanding me and never putting too much pressure on me. I see an incredible future for both of us no matter where each of our lives takes us.

We will always share a unique connection that cannot be separated by any distance. But, for now, I'm glad you're only one text or phone call away.
