A letter to you

Susana Ginez, Staff Writer

This blog is a letter to someone who is important to me and who I love very dearly. You know who you are.

“Dear You,

You have no idea how much I have grown to love you. It has only been a couple of years but you mean so much to me. You make me a better person. You make me WANT to be a better person. You have put so much effort into sticking by me and that is something I am eternally grateful for. During the start of our friendship, I was horrible to you. I made you go through things that were not acceptable and if I could take it all back, I would.

The fact that I made you go through so much and you are still here, shows that you are a wonderful person. You are hilarious and so kind. You are always there for me every single second that I need you. You give me the courage and the motivation I need when I seem ready to give up. You cheer me on and encourage me to do great things. You are the most trustworthy person I know and the greatest listener. You know every single one of my secrets because I know that even if you come to hate me or dislike me some day, my secrets will be safe with you.

Thank you for always being here for me. Thank you for always giving me courage and encouraging me to try new things. Thank you for standing by my victories and my losses. Thank you for always giving me advice and comforting me every time I need it. Thank you for putting up with me and my rudeness. Thank you for making me learn to forgive and forget. Thank you for showing me that there are still wonderful people like you out there. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for the many memories you have given me and for the ones we are still making.

We can be very different people and even though it may look like a bad thing, I believe it is a good thing. Every day is a new adventure. I learn new things about you and new things entirely that I definitely did not now. I get to see, hear, and try new things. There is never a dull moment with you. It doesn’t matter whether we stay in or go out, our time together is always fun and great. I am blessed to have a person as wonderful as you and I hope you always stay in my life because I really need you.

I always grew up to be so insecure and disliked everything about me, but you have taught me that a person is beautiful no matter how they look. Everyone looks and is different and even though not every single person will like you, there will always be friends and family who will love you unconditionally and when you learn that you will learn not to care about the negative people. You will focus on the good people and the people you love. So even though I still do not love every single thing about me, I am more comfortable with how I am and look. I look forward to my future and it will be an honor to keep seeing you by my side as the years go by. You are my person and I don’t know what I would do without you.

I love you to the moon and back.”
