Open Letter to Forgotten Friends

Dearest friends of old,

I haven’t thought of many of you much, and I most certainly haven’t called any of you since the day I moved away. I wanted to say that I am so sorry for that.

Lately, I’ve been remembering snippets of my childhood that I haven’t thought about in what feels like forever. I’m beginning to remember those days we spent together playing, laughing, just generally goofing around. Every time it comes to mind, my eyes get all misty. I really wanted to express my thanks to all of you.

Without all of you who spent time with me in spite of my crazy imagination and probably very weird tendencies. I know I wasn’t much like the other girls my age, and I’ve had a hard time relating to girls my age of late. I want you all to know just how much the time we spent together means to me. I was a very shy child and never made friends easily, as a result, I’d been bullied through most of my school life. That makes the time you shared with me all the more special to me.

I’m sure that without each and every one of you I would not be the person I am today, especially those of you who played with me even though I was quite a bit younger than you. I’m sure I wasn’t alway easy to be around, but you smiled and laughed with me anyway. I just want you all to know that even though I might forget your names and faces, I will never forget that feeling of being loved you all gave me. You all made me feel worthy of being me, and helped me realize that it’s fine to be the way I am, even if no one else thinks so.

Really, I would love nothing more than to be able to thank you all properly and in person, but since I am unable to, this letter will have to suffice. I hope it conveys to you all the feelings you gave to me as we spent time together, and that, just maybe, at least one of you might see this and remember that smiling little girl you once knew.


A Happy Nostalgic
