Friends

Jesse Villa Ms. Abbott-Gee AP English 18 November 2016 An Open Letter To My Friends Who Have Supported Me Over the years I’ve had many friends, some have gone or I have grown apart from, but there are still some who have stayed. I have a couple of friends who have constantly supported me and have always been there for me. To me a good friend stays by a person no matter what. To me a good friend doesn’t judge you. To me a good friend knows how to make me laugh when I feel down. These are the kind of people my friends are. My friends are the type of people that will sit with and listen to all your problems when you feel like your world is crashing down. The ones that know before anyone else does when something is bothering you. The kind that will still make an effort to...

I’m sure that you don’t see anything wrong with your behaviour; from your perception, you’re simply offering advice as a friend concerned for his wellbeing. If you pitched it that way to someone more removed from the situation and the people in it, they might believe you too. You’ve made use of the fact that people don’t look closely or listen properly most of the time. You’ve used it to your advantage in getting by in the world – appearing friendly to the right people as needed to get the things you feel you need. I don’t condemn you for clinging so desperately and relentlessly to this position even as it becomes ineffective. I don’t condemn someone using the best coping mechanisms they’ve managed to come up with from their life circumstances because that’s all any of us really have to...

We used to do everything together and not a day would go by that I wouldn't speak to you. We'd be at your house every weekend because you didn't like spending the night anywhere else. I knew everything about you and you knew everything about me. But now we never speak and I see you with your group of friends that I don't think would ever approve of me. I mean I used to be friends with one or two of them but the others they couldn't stand me. We used to be so close and I admired how you never let anyone over look you and always spoke your mind and you didn't worry about who heard. I always wanted to be more like that but I never could be. I would try to say things with the same confidence you did but I was too afraid. At the same time that I admired that it also scared me , I was...

E, I'm so, so, so sorry. You trusted me with a secret and I went and fucked up your life by telling the counselor. I was scared of losing you and worried that you'd overdose for real. How the fuck am I supposed to deal with that? I care about you, and instead of that hospital helping, you just came back even more stressed and miserable from all the missed work. You spent a week without touching another person. You missed Comic-con. You spent a week of your life in a prison for the suicidal and it's all my fault. It's not bad enough that your dad's in jail, your brother's a dick and you've been in the closet for years. I just had to go and get you hospitalized. I tried to go visit you, bring you books and candy, but they wouldn't let me in. I'm "too young". Old enough to date and kiss...

How are you? I hope your college classes are going great, I heard you have a boyfriend now. I hope he treats you like Queen and shares your faith in God. I am writing this because this might be the only way you will read a message from me, its sad how far we have grown apart. Ever since we were 6 or 7 years old we have been friends but now you wont talk to me and have shut me out of your life and I don’t know why. Is it because my faith in God is not as great as yours? Because I don’t go to your Church? Or has college just been the final straw of the friendship? Elementary throw high school we have been friends even with me going to a Private school we still stayed close. But it seems after we went to Disney World and I made a wish that we would always be friends even with us being...

I never thought we would ever not be friends. I thought this friendship would last forever but here we are we haven't spoke in months and the worst thing is that I feel like your okay with that. We were inseparable since we were 3 or 4. I knew all your secrets and you knew mine, if you were ever sad or mad or just needed someone to hear the weird thoughts from your head I was always there and I knew you were there for me too. Rain hail or shine I could count on you to be there but lately I've had to stand out in the cold alone. You see what happened is you met him..it was so exciting and you were so happy and I was so happy for you , we spent hours on the phone talking about it and I gave you advice and you told me about your dates and how he made you feel and how you thought it was...

Friends; If you consider yourself one, then, Hi! I'm happy for that decision. I want to say thank you to each of you. For giving me the will to write this message. I know friendship isn't about talking always, but I feel that none of you talks to me unless I start. You say you miss me but all you do is say and not do. Soon, I'll be gone. I am very much excited to meet new ones but don't worry, I'll remember you if you are my real friends. Family; sorry if I never told you any of my problems or any of the things I feel. Sorry if I don't tell you that I am trying everything to distract myself from anxiety and depression. I hope I find a therapist when I have the money. Sorry if I lied to you, I did not mean it and I'm praying that you'll forgive me and that God forgives me from the lies...

Cael, Where to start? But.. let's be clear. I know you hate sappy shit and all that, but i just needed to tell you a few things. First of all, I want to make sure you know that I can’t stand you 99.999% of the time. Wait wait wait, happy birthday! anyway I’ve never met someone who annoys me as much as you do, but at the same time, I’ve never been more thankful that you’re that person. Thank you for being perpetually annoying, and thank you for the texts or snapchats everyday that remind me how horrible I am lmao. It’s the little things that make me realize how lucky I am to have you in my life. You’re one of the few people that I can talk to everyday and I know that annoys you but I appreciate it so much. Our friendship is something I hold close to me, honestly, I don’t want anyone to...

Dear Ex-BFF, You were my world, honestly my best friends are family to me. You guys are my world, you make me who I am. And I've always been proud of who I am. Well that's not entirely true. You see I have anxiety, low self esteem, and even some mild depression (if there is such a thing). I constantly question myself and feel like I'm doing something wrong. I feel too needy all the time. I want my friends to know I love them and want to talk to them, yet I often feel like an annoyance. I need to be constantly reassured. And yes that might be a pain for you, but take it or leave it. I constantly feel like I'm not good enough, not pretty enough, not smart enough etc etc. So yeah I can be a little irritating with my constant need for reassurance. But I am the...

Dear Mariah, We had met in the 7th grade at Monre middle school.You seem like a really cool person to talk to. We both like a lot of the same stuff like animals like monkeys and pandas , doing art at home, shopping of course at easton, getting our nails done at hot tips, etc. We started doing almost everything together. We even went on trips together, just you and me. It was so much fun doing all that with you. But you slowly started to change. You became distant. We use to go over each other's house every other weekend now we barely say hi in the hallways. I was like a ghost to you and you would just walk right through me. Then you started talking about me behind my back like, “What kind of friend are you?” I started to feel like I was nothing to you anymore, like the...
