Song of the Post: 1+1 – Beyoncé
They say you only remember 17% of the people you ever meet in your life. They also say that you will meet about 733, 000 peopl ein your life. That is an incredibly small number of people you remember, compared to those you meet. However, I have found one that I will always remember. For the sake of not releasing her name in public, I will refer to her as M.
Couple of days ago, M uploaded an ineffably touching message, more like a letter, as the caption of a photo of M and I. If I were to try to describe how I felt, I would say it was like finding one person smiling jovially, within an arena filled with frowns. Of course I knew we were friends to somewhat of a degree, but I was not aware of how close we had gotten until I read this letter.
The funny thing is, just a couple of weeks ago, we were in the awkward stages friends go through after a fight. After finally getting the courage to talk to M about why we fought, we both figured out that it was us that was the problem, but rather someone else that created a sort of miscommunication between us. After this realization, we set aside our obstacles, and started a fresh and new friendship that I hope will last a lifetime. M has been someone that has never failed to listen when I needed to talk to someone, and someone who would come to me first when they had a concern or someone they wanted to talk to as well. The fact that someone would consider me as the person to reach out first for their problem resolvement was what I was really thankful for.
Throughout my life, I have never really made close friends because I always knew I would be moving schools every 2 or 3 years. However, in my current school, it is now my 4th year, and M and I have always have a sort of friendship that had its big ups and downs. When I saw that there was someone who now considers me as important to them as much as they are importnat to me, was when I realized I had made a true friend.
However, I guess it’s true what they say, the more you fight, the closer you get. We’ve been through our ups and downs, but you have always been there for me.
M, thank you for everything you’ve done and I love you much. You will always be a true friend.
