Every so often you’ll have that person who walks into your life and turns everything around. They come in many forms: a professor that shows how much they care, a significant other, a best friend. The moment you open your heart to them you realize that your life will never be the same again. They have changed you, molded you into someone with more intriguing facets than you had before. They introduce you to new things and you fall in love with their outlook on life. They make you grow and see yourself in a whole new way. You see yourself through their eyes.
These people are the type of people that you know you will always ALWAYS be there for. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t spoken in years or had a fight that opened a huge gorge between you. One call from them and you know you’ll immediately jump to their aid. You may have had your issues, but they will always hold a special place in your heart. They saw you when no one else could and looked past the façade you threw up. Those friends are the ones you’ll never forget, even after their physical presence has left your life. They still linger in your thoughts. You see them in the way you see the world.
They may no longer be present but they are always near. You hold that piece of them closely to your heart. This is for the ones who changed us and molded us into a better person. It’s for the ones who live miles away, but still take the time to call and see how we are. This is for those friends that hold a special place in our hearts.
Thank you for being the friend I needed,
A Grateful Friend
