This time last year, I made a bold decision to send you a message, hoping for a reply. You know that feeling you get when you first meet a person but don’t know if they’ll accept your invitation/friend request? It was just exactly like that. I was so afraid of what was going to happen and the possibility that I might not have gotten a reply. You seemed like someone I’d never get along with simply because I thought I was never good enough. Turned out I was wrong. You seemed extremely amiable and I was pleasantly surprised by how warm and friendly you were. It was possibly one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life. I can safely say at this point, right now in my life, no matter what’s going on around, I am truly happy. I am contented with where I am right now and I couldn’t be happier that I have you to share it with.
That was just the beginning of a very beautiful friendship. We started to talk, go out, get along. The more I learnt about you, the more attracted I was to your personality. You seemed like an extremely charming person, charismatically engaging as well. You never fail to have something interesting to talk about and I thoroughly enjoyed every single conversation we have, whether it was online, on the phone, through skype or in person. I particularly love the long nights that we spend together talking about anything and everything. Just being in your company, embracing the start of something beautiful.
You’ve become a very special part of my life over the year and you’re always the first person I’d want to talk to in any given situation, be it in happiness or times of despair. The irony about you is that, although you never fail to have a boring conversation, you’re really bad with expressing yourself and how you feel. I found it endearing at first, but it got a little annoying at a later point. It was difficult for me to adapt because I was so used to people saying and expressing how they felt about something, it took me a little while to get used to this. I must admit that at this point, I am still in the midst of getting used to. But hey, everyone has his or her flaws and perfections, so we give and take in life.
But the great thing about you is that you’re extremely open-minded and you take things for what they are. You listen to things; hear stuff out before making impulsive or sudden perceptions about things. I love how you accept me for who I am, whatever flaws I have; you’ve decided to stick with me through everything. I’m sure the people that are closest to me know how psycho I can get. But yet you still chose to stay on, you still chose to hold on to me. It really means a lot that you’ve decided to stay on despite my several insecurities. Consequently, proving again that you’re such an amazing person.
Yeah sure we’ve had out differences and disagreements, but which friendship doesn’t have that? I do not think that any friendship exists where both parties agree to every single thing, but they learn to work with each other, to accept the differences that stand in between them and overcome them together, bringing the relationship to a deeper level.
There are definitely times where I feel like strangling you and punching you in the face because you simply don’t care about certain things and that just annoys the hell out of me. You disappoint me, upset me and make me severely mad. But at the end of the day, after venting my frustration, we seem to always make things work. I have to commend you for understanding, because I’m sure it’s not easy to deal with me. I love how we still get along despite these differences and I am grateful that you’ve been such an essential part of my life over the course of this year.
You’ve become very very special to me and I promise that I will treasure every moment that we spend together from henceforth. I pledge my loyalty towards you as a friend and anything else you want me to be. I want you to know that you’ll always hold a special place in my heart, no matter what happens to us. Know that I will always remember you, come what may. I want you to remember me for all the good times that we’ve had together, for I know those memories are already engraved in my heart. I look forward to the coming year ahead. Here’s to the many more special moments we’ll share together.
As long as you’re around, I’ll follow you. I’ll be wherever you go. You will never be alone.
