A letter to all those strangers who are now friends.
There was a day when I passed by you without a word, maybe thought that youre cute, but you were insignicant to my life. But then somehow we started talking. Yall poor people got stuck with me and probably wish we were still strangers but for now youll put up with me. I dont know the future but if youre part of my life right now, that means your important. There is a reason people are friends with you, so if you feel you’re nothing special, that is absolutely not true. No one can replace you and the impact you have in my life. You’re an amazing human being and please dont ever become a stranger. Because everytime a friend becomes a stranger once again, they take away a piece of your heart, and soon there will be no heart left.
Many times we stop communicating with those who we considered our best friends. There comes a point where the person who knew you inside out, now doesn’t know you current favourite book. You’re scares to reach out and rekindle old friendship because you’re scared whether they still want you in their life, whether they’ve changed and if it is a welcome change. You’re scared of rejection and of change. You don not want to tarnish the memories you have of them. This is what i feel when I see an old friend in passing. I feel a sense of nostalgia everytime i like they’re picture on instagram and wish that we were friends again.
If we ever drift apart, escpecially since we will all be going to different college soons, please do not forget me and please do not let our friendship die. I promise I will try my best to keep in touch and I hope that you people whom i call my family today, don’t become strangers in a few years.
