Today I saw one of my friends that I haven't seen all summer. It saddens me to know that I can no longer call him by bestfriend 'cause well... He's just not anymore. I actually kinda miss the days when it felt like it was just the two of us. Nonetheless, I still jumped on him like it's been 2 years rather than 2 months. We laughed and talked about life, people, and things that are really important to us. He said, "This is us." And I agreed. Looking back, we've gone through so many things to get to where we are today; to get to this point where we can just talk like this. I think that's why he's one of my most treasured friends - it took work and effort. We've both had our share of friends that have walked out of our lives for something they think to be better. He's seen me cry over guys and I've seem him... Well, I've seen girls who crush on him and fail to even get his attention (GG). There's been laughter, jealousy, awkwardness, "... What's a period?", and days where I get so fed up with him. But he always patiently waits for me to come back. I always think that if there were more people like him in the world, it would be a much better place. If only everyone was so good-intentioned. He's changed a lot since we've become friends. I mean, he used sarcasm today. I remember the days where I'd always have to assure him that I was kidding, because he doesn't understand the concept of meaning the opposite of what you say. I hope he's changing for the better. I remember the times when I finally won him over, and we leaned on each other like it was all we had. He'd always have questions, and I'd always be the one to answer them. I'd need someone to be there, and he would be. And honestly, now, I feel like we don't need each other in that way anymore. Actually, I know we don't. It's like that security blanket you have as a kid. Eventually, you realize that you have to let it go in order to move forward. Don't get me wrong, I'd still trust him with my life, even if his foot did narrowly miss my head. He's been there since day one, and I could only hope to do the same for him.
Love you R. Thanks for everything.
