Love Letter to a Friend

You are not a disappointment, a burden, a failure, an obligation. You are not the fear, the insecurity, the hesitation, the withdrawal. We all feel things we cannot control. I can't imagine the battle you face each day between your mind and your body, the war between what you want to feel versus what you do feel. I can't say I fully relate, because I cannot be in your shoes, but I do promise to try to understand. Every time you have something to express, even if it's not positive, I beg you not to hesitate. Every time there's something holding you back, please don't feel the need to hold it back. And even if there isn't a solution in the moments that follow, I hope the expression will leave you feeling lighter. I hope having someone to express to will lessen the weight you carry. 

You deserve goodness. Good experiences, good people, good emotions. You are a good person. You're loyal, genuine, forgiving, understanding. Your heart is enormous and your generosity overflows. You're intelligent and strong, fiercely strong. Emotionally and physically, you endure challenges gracefully and I will always admire you for that. I hope you'll be willing to open your heart and mind to the blessings life offers you. You deserve no less than anyone else.

I'm grateful for you and I'm grateful for our friendship, for everything we've shared together. You were there for me through my darkest days, and when you need me, I'll do my best to be there for you. And if I'm not there for you in the way you need me to be, please let me know so that I can try to be better, because I want to be there for you in the way that you need me to be. Like I said, I can't always relate, but I promise to do my best to understand and support you through anything you go through. No matter what has happened and no matter what will happen, you have been my friend and will be my friend. You are not anxiety or depression or any label, any sickness, anything less than human, anything less than loved. You matter so much to so many. You matter so much to me. 

Thank you for your strength, your honesty, your fight. For your incomparable friendship yesterday, today and tomorrow. I love you no matter what.
