To The Friend That Wouldn't Take Me Back

To The Friend That Wouldn't Take Me Back

You taught me a lot.

It seems like every since we were little children that we would all meet our small group of friends at our social places like daycare and school and from that day forward, we claim them as our best friend. Once that happens, we then proceed to claim that we will be friends forever and that nothing will separate us and so on. Unfortunately, as the years go on we tend to loose those friends and go our separate ways. However, you could also make a mistake and it gets blown out of proportion and try and make up but it just doesn't happen, no matter how hard you try. Well, this is to my best friend of almost four years that just would not take me back.

At first, I was completely devastated because we would do everything together and now I had no one (at least that's how I saw it at the time). Then as time went on, it got a little easier to deal with the pain that you would never consider me a friend again. When it got to the point that the pain was almost non-existent, you managed to blow my world up once again, but not the way I had hoped. You sent out one of your little minions to blow up my phone with text messages on how I was always a horrible friend but you managed to always stick with me no matter what and a bunch of other false stuff. I tried my best to just shake it off because I knew that it was not true and that you were trying to get under my skin. And I will admit, you did get under my skin once again, but not for that long because I finally realized one major thing; you were never really a true friend. Once that finally hit me on the head like a wrecking ball, I managed to get over the entire thing and just move on with my life.

With all of the negative vibes and events that happened, though, I learned countless life lessons that I would benefit for the rest of my life, and I honestly thank you for that. One of the biggest lessons I learned was to pay attention to how the person treats other people that they had a falling out with and why they had a falling out. This is important to me because it will show you the type of person that they truly are and will make you really question their character. It can also make you try and put yourself in the other person's shoes and see if you could deal being treated like that.

Another tough lesson that I learned was that even tough you may do everything with someone and give the friendship your all, they can try and find an easy out of the friendship. This, unfortunately, happens more time than not, I have begun to realize after talking to several other people. One major thing I learned from this is to not take it personally because sometimes people jus can't handle having the dedication from specific people for so long and they try their hardest to find an easy out of anything.

Like I have said previously, I truly thank you for not taking me back after my small hick-up in our friendship. This stupid rut in the road has made me a stronger person. It has also given me a different outlook on friendship because I know know that you don't have to do everything with that one person constantly. It has taught me that sometimes, the people that aren't always physically there, are most likely your better friends because you don't take them for granite and vice versa. So one last time, thank you and I hope you have a blissful life.

Dear Mom,

I hope you know that I appreciate you.

You are the hardest working woman I know, continuously putting your family before yourself. Thank you for doing all of the tedious jobs that no one wants to do like keeping the house in order, cooking the food, and doing the laundry. Thank you for constantly putting up with my siblings and I. Thank you for always supporting us in our interests and hobbies. Thank you for investing in our daily lives and listening to our minor problems. Thank you for always loving us unconditionally.

I hope you know I'm sorry.

I know I can be a big pain in the butt sometimes, and for that I'm sorry. I'm sorry for yelling at you, arguing with you, not listening to you, and making dumb decisions at times, but thank you for loving me anyways. Thank you for helping me stand back up, teaching me right from wrong, and pushing me to be the very best version of me.

I hope you know your love inspires me.

You live your life with a love that is contagious. Whether its nurturing love, tough love, friendly love, or romantic love, you have it all and you show it daily. The love you and Dad share is something I hope to find one day and the love you have for your family is evident in the way you constantly put us first.

I hope you know that you are my biggest role model and hero.

Ever since I was a little girl, you have been the person I have looked to in my life. You are strong, independent, confident, loving, supportive, and nurturing-- everything I strive to be as a woman and as a future mother. You give the best advice, even when I don't always take it. Though, I should know better by now because mothers always know best. Without you in my life, I honestly don't know where I'd be.

I hope you know that you are my best friend.

Not only are you my biggest cheerleader supporting me in everything I do, you are the person I talk to about everything, whether it's good or bad. I'm honestly so thankful for the relationship we share because I've had countless screwups and you literally give the best advice. Seriously, thank you for being the person I can count on at all times, at any time of the day or even night to just talk with. I mean we really do have some of the best conversations, best laughs, best cries (when needed), and the most fun watching cheesy chick flicks together or going on crazy shopping adventures.

I hope you know that I am here for you--until the very end.

I don't mean to make you cry or anything -- even though you probably already are, but I want you to know that when the time comes, I'm going to be there for you just like all of these years you've been here for me. I will be there to support you, talk with you, laugh with you, cry with you, and love you for all of my life.

Honestly, I can't really imagine my life without you -- but it doesn't matter because I wouldn't be here without you, so here's to you.

Thank you for being you.

Love you lots!

Your daughter.

Yes, I'm A Babysitter And Yes, It Is The Best Job In The Whole Wide World

It's hard. It's exhausting. But in the end, its so, so, so worth it.

When I turned 16 years old, I started babysitting during the summer to make some extra money and get myself out of the house and off the couch. Now, I'm 19 years old and I still babysit during the summer, but this school year I've had the opportunity to babysit on the days that I don't have classes. When people ask me where I work or what my job is, I'll sometimes get strange looks and questions like, "Is that your real job?" when I tell them that I babysit. Sure, I don't have a typical job and I often wonder how different my life would be if I had a 'normal' college job, but honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way.

Babysitting, to me, is more than a job. It's giving hugs, wiping tears, and kissing boo-boos. It's listening to "Let It Go" and playing "Ring Around The Rosie," even though you feel sick from spinning in circles for the last hour, just because it makes the kids happy. It's watching "Blippi," "Barney," and "A Bug's Life" for hours on end, thinking you might pull your hair out if you hear the 'Excavator' song one more time.

It's so much more than what meets the eye. It's hard. It's exhausting. But in the end, its so, so, so worth it. I wouldn't trade the hugs, kisses, or giggles for anything in the world. So next time you ask me where I work, I'll proudly respond that I'm a babysitter. I'm proud to be a babysitter, I'm proud to be "Lowey" and I love being a babysitter. I truly have the best job in the world.
