“Dear best friend,
I love you. And I need you to know whatever it is that you are feeling, is normal. If you feel you’re going back to your old ways, it’s normal. It’s still you. No matter what you read in books, see in movies or imagine in your most cherished dreams, you cannot bury your own self. The fact that bits and bits of you come back. . .it’s not the end of the world. It’s beautiful. It’s a circle. You are still you. The same amazing, funny, kind-hearted you. Just a little bit more emotional. Which is totally okay, as emotions are what we’re built on. Showing emotion makes you human, not weak. You should be proud you feel. You should be proud you’re empathic, sensitive, artistic. Be proud of what you feel and never deny your feelings. Thay are beautiful and what makes you. . .you. Even if you feel you’re on a dark path, never deny yourself, your mind, your heart, body, feelings. Be you, no matter what, because you are amazing.
And one more thing. STOP saying you’re this and that when you talk to people you consider friends. They are here to help you. I am here to help you. You are not annoying, nor persistent. You are you. And that’s enough for me. It’s normal to be worried and stressed out because of life, but not because of your friends.
