I wanted to write a kinda open letter thing to my best girl mate Sophie, because sometimes I think we all need a little boost and to know we are appreciated.
I’ll be honest, I have no idea how the hell we actually ended up being friends haha!
We’ve been friends so long that it feels like you’ve just always been there, though it’s been like ten years or so (god we’re old!)
I just wanna say thank you to you for those school years particularly, because you saw me when no one else did, and you treated me like an actual friend rather than just using me when everyone else was busy. You also saved me in PE (when we did actually participate!) by always being my partner, and you saved me from the dreaded walk to and from school on my own many times. Having you around made school a tad bit easier so I thank you for that.
You were also my saviour out of school too.
For all the times I fell out with family you were there to meet me and take me in when I needed to escape.
You came with me to Bournemouth so that I wasn’t going alone.
You sat with me for literally hours in town because I just didn’t wanna be at home.
And you have been part of some fucking awesome memories…yes that includes when you dragged me down that fucking hill and made me land in stinging nettles (in style though!) but at least you helped me in Burger King toilets try to get my stinging Popeye arms into the sink haha!
And of course, the western. You were there for me when I fell head over heels in love with Joe…and you were there when he broke my heart too.
You were there through some of my toughest times when I was fighting nasty battles in my own head- risking your own safety to save me sometimes.
You were always first to notice when I’d disappear, or sometimes you’d realise I was about to before it even happened and got people like Joe to help you bring me back. And for that alone I’m forever grateful.
I hate that for a few years we drifted apart because life is just a dick like that- but whatever bought us back together, I’m glad it did because I’d be lost without you now.
Even though I haven’t seen you in a few years, you’re the only person I can rely on to actually text me (when your phone doesn’t hate me lol) and have a conversation with me about anything and everything.
I can talk to you about anything- from gross stuff like mega periods and my daughters constipation, to random theories, annoyances, man trouble, you name it we talk about it!
You’re also the only friend of mine who’s openly and publicly proud of me for stuff like when I passed my driving test, and that is really appreciated.
I also appreciate the fact that even though you haven’t met my daughter, you still ask about her more than what most family members do, and you’ve been kind enough to send her cards and presents which again is more than what most family members do.
For me, you’re way more than a best friend, you’re family, and you always will be.
You deserve a lot better than what you’ve been given over the years, and hopefully now with recent events you will see that for yourself and believe it.
You’re fucking awesome, and I wish you could see that for yourself.
Time to be who you want to be, and to put yourself first.
No more scrubs! Lol
I love ya cockwomble, and I’ll always be here no matter what. Now that I can drive, we will definitely need to sort out some good old catch up times to make new memories, get some god damn tattoos, and take some better photos because the ones I’ve included are pure cringe haha!!
🔹immeamy, you’re you, and that’s the best way to be🔹
