To This Guy I Know:
Thank you for being a guy I know and for being pretty amazing. Everyone should have a friend like you. I know one of your friends. He’s super lucky to have you his life. I hope he appreciates the friendship.
Part of my owning my life this year – one day I’ll tell you a story, if you ever want to know – is to build someone else up rather than get upset when someone else tears me down. You might not know this, but watching the two of you has given me hope that there are good people in the world, people who look out for each other.
…and it’s not just words with you. I was a girl who loved words, until they betrayed me. That’s when I started reading people’s actions and ignoring what they said, because what they did unveiled their true nature. But you – you said you’d do something, and you did it, and I thank you for doing what you said you’d do for your friend.
Guy friendships are so simple. You relate to each other on a relaxed, casual, and easy-flowing level.
…and now you’re part of my plan to take this year to build someone up. Whether he wins or not, he’s already won for having you on his side. With you he has two qualities that mean the most to me: safety and loyalty.
“Sometimes you meet a person and you just click – you’re comfortable with them, like you’ve known them your whole life, and you don’t have to pretend to be anyone or anything.”
Thank you for being a guy I know.
*So who’s your friend you’re going to build up this year?
