A Thank You to my Current Boyfriend (For Unromantic Reasons)

You typically don"t see a lot of letters to a loved one such as this that isn't romantic and/or lovey-dovey. This is not that kind of letter.

Don't get me wrong--I love my boyfriend. I could go on for days as to why I think he is amazing, perfect, etc, as well as why I am in love with him.

Those words are for him though. I don't need to prove my love or share it with the world via a letter. Therefore I'm going to avoid that.

What I really want to talk about is how my life has changed upon meeting him. Because without him, the course of my life would be going very different.

So, to begin:

My boyfriend,

I have to thank you for all that you have done. It's only been a few months together, but your impact on my life will quite literally last forever.

To start off simple, you are pushing me in the right direction. Today I just renewed my permit for the second time because you have made it a priority to finally getting my driver's license. You know that despite being close to 20, no one else in my life has bothered to set this goal and then I get blamed for it. You even paid the fees for me and used the last ten dollars to your name.

Everyday you tell me I'm beautiful despite a lifetime full of bullying. You are patient with me through every anxiety attack or bout of depressive thoughts. You understand that I apologize for everything, even when I have done nothing wrong, and you always assure me that I have no reason to be sorry.

You make sure I'm always putting in 1000 percent, even when I don't think I can.

What really baffles me is that you never accept my thank yous. You always tell me that I don't need to thank you, as if you have done nothing for me at all. You act like you haven't been so influential to my life.

Because of you, I am moving forward in life for so many reasons that I thought I would never see. The world deserves to know about how kind of a person you are. I am forever grateful. Thank you. For everything and more.
