A letter to you, my friend
I've known you for as long as I can remember, and I'm actually not sure how we met but I'm glad we did. Do you remember the time we "got married"? I think we were about 6 years old and we'd bough candy rings from the store. You got my pink one and I got your blue one. *tada* we were married. It only lasted a couple of seconds since you wanted the blue one back, the pink one was too girly. The summer when we were 8 had lost your two front teeth so when you smiled you loked like an old pirate. Your laugh was contagious and you'd convince me to do the craziest things. You taught me how to dive from the pier (and I swear to god it took me 20 days to get it right). You were always fearless, not afraid of anything. Nothing changed as we got older, we were still always up to something sneaky. I miss your laugh, our midnight conversations on the beach and laughing with you until our cheeks hurt.
We couldn't wait to grow up, could we? We promised each other to always be friends, even when we're old and grey. We wanted to be 15 years old and then our life would be accomplished, we'd be adults and wouldn't have a single worry. Look at us now, you´re 16 and I'm 15 and we don't even live in the same country anymore.
I'm sorry that we don't talk as much as we used to and we both know that it's not enough with a single phone call now and then. We are living completely separate lives, and I think that I'm okay with that. I know that we lost what we once had but I hope we'll get it back one day. I know that I'll always have you, you know since we're married and all...
Your friend, Bella xx
Hi, there! I've been thinking about my friend a lot recently, and I wanted to write a letter. It's actually more for myself than for my friend, I actually haven't even sent it, I don't think I will. I guess that this post is about a friendship not being the same as it used to be. I'd love to have a conversation about this in the comments. Tell me if you've lost a friendship or if it has changed, how did it happen, do you miss them?
