Friendships shape you. Some friendships build you up, keep you going and support you when you just don’t have the strength to face another day. Some friendships are toxic; they break you down and hurt you, but out of all the heartbreak you come out as a stronger and better version of yourself.
No matter what type of friendship it is, it has a purpose in your life.
There are friends that I used to have that are no longer in my life, but that does not mean I don’t appreciate everything that those friends did for me. I know that I wouldn’t be alive today, let alone the version of myself I am now, had I not had those friends.
So from the bottom of my heart: thank you.
Thank you for supporting me and loving me when I did not know how to love myself.
Thank you for moulding me into the person I am finally proud to be.
Thank you for leading me closer to my purpose and thank you for allowing me the absolute honor of having you all own a piece of my heart.
Just because you are no longer in my lives does not mean that I do not love you with every inch of my soul. Any past fights or horrible words said I’ve long forgotten and forgiven, and I hope you’ve done the same. I only think of you with love. I reminisce in happy memories and look back on my time with you with absolute love. There’s no regret in my heart.
I know that you are also no longer with me for a reason. Maybe we will reconnect one day or maybe we won’t. But each of you changed my life for the better, and for that I am forever grateful to you.
