THE WORDS I NEVER SAID “I miss you even though you were never there.
Even though I see how much better off I am without you, sometimes it still hurts.”
“Your ignorance speaks volumes about your character.”
Please stop whining~ Your life is not as terrible as you would like to believe it is. Some people are born into countries with war, and you’re so upset about some miniscule thing? Whenever you start to feel sorry for yourself, you should really step back, look at the bigger picture, and be grateful for what you do have. Life will seem shorter and happier that way.
“When you asked me if we were just friends because you lived next door, I didn’t say anything ... because the answer was yes.”
“Friend, the false memories scare me. I know you think it’s just a funny story, but I’m scared. I don’t know if anything is real anymore.”
“I wish that you would notice me, love me. That’s all.”
“You are living proof that intelligence and common sense don’t always go hand in hand.”
“Please stop making me feel like I’m some idiot for my own decisions; they’re my own, and I can control my own life. Maybe it’s not me who should be looking their personality over.”
“You ask the dumbest questions I have ever heard. If you would just listen in class, you wouldn’t have to ask for every single point to be repeated. Then people might not hate you.”
To a friend: “Howwwwwwwwwww can you be so blind? I’ve liked you for five years now yet I still feel as though you have no clue. At that time, everyone else could see it. Could you? And if you could or if you did, can you please say something now? If we’re never going to be anything more than what we are now, then just let me know. I’ve gotten the feeling over and over again that there might be something more. Not knowing for sure, though, kills me.
“Why do you always let others put you down? You’re a strong and talented individual yet you always let others break down your spirit. You need to stand up for yourself when people talk bad about you and stop laughing it off. We all can see you’re sad about what people say, and we try to help, but you have to step up and defend yourself. Someone isn’t always going to be there to fight your battles for you. So as a bystander and one that defends you, I’m asking for you to step up and show the world the strong and talented side of you.”
“I wish you didn’t hate the world. It’s re ally upsetting that someone so young is already so jaded. I wish you could see the good in people. I wish you could be happy with the simplicities of life. No one is as mean as you think they are. I wish you could
see how beautiful you are. Maybe it’s because you’re young that you have a hard time with all of this, but take my word: life gets better.” To my fellow dreamers: Never lose hope. Thank you for understanding all my words before this. Ever. Thank you for understanding that for as long as I live. Through this year, I always agree what that you’ve done, and I’m sorry if my opinion makes you nervous. But it’s not going to change. And I think that, in a way, that’s the beauty of us. “I could never tell you this in person since, well, I’m too insecure. Honestly, you are a wonderful person. I barely see you, and I always wonder what we could be like. You’ve been like a sis to me at times, and we have gotten a lot closer lately, but I guess I’ll never know. So after you graduate, I hope we still keep in t ouch. I want you to know that thank you for being able to make me smile all the time even when I’ve had a horrible day.”
“Why don’t you stop worrying about what everyone else does with their life and start thinking about how you live your life and how you make people feel?”
“I hate to admit it, but I really like who I’ve become as a person in these past years. I make mistakes, I have fun, I’m more open to people, I’m more laid back and I don’t have to waste time and energy striving for your attention. I depended too heavily on you, and it wasn’t healthy. Thanks for helping me see it was time to let go.” To someone: The distance has torn us apart, but I’m not so sure that a bad thing. Our goals and our perspectives are just so different ... too different. But, I promise that I will never ever change to a person that you not recognize anymore. Believe me.
“I wish I could show how much I appreciate what you did for me. I was that hyper kid that never focused and never really showed potential. Despite all of this, you saw the potential I had. The fact that you believed in me then allowed me to be so successful now.” “You told me I couldn’t do it, but I accomplished it in the end. So thank you for your words of discouragement; they fuel me to be even better.” To my best friend, Thank you for always being here for me. I really owe my life to you. You have always been by my side through my good and bad moments. You bring out the best in me, and you are more than capable of handling my flaws. I’ve made plenty of mistakes and blessed that you are able to accept my apologies. I never meant to hurt you. I think that if we stick together, we can help each other. I’m amazed by your compassion every day, and I just want to sincerely thank you for being such a devoted and loyal friend :) To my old “friend”: Sure, we’re considered “friends,” but the truth is we’re really not, and you don’t have any REAL friends simply because all you care about is yourself. That’s all you ever talk about: your life, your friends, your family, your endless problems, your crushes (which change every week) ... and whenever someone tries to talk about him or herself a little bit, your one-word responses make it so obvious that you don’t give a crap. Maybe if you were a little less self-centered, a little more caring and actually listened to others, you would know what it’s like to have REAL friends. Hahaha....good news! Someone already knew this from me and also knew her. TRUE STORY~ “I don’t know why I ever used quotes when I referred to you as my sis. You have been there for me through so much, and I love you all more than you can imagine.
Thank you for being everything I needed and more. I can’t even begin to describe how much I will miss you all this year, and I hope that we are always this close.” “Thank you for being there; you are truly one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. Some of the other people you hang out with irritate the hell out of me, but it’s alright since you always manage to brighten my day. There’s things I’ve always wanted to tell you, but I still can’t and won’t. But mainly: thank you.” “I love you, but you’re just so blind you can’t see it.” “There are a lot of things I wish I had said to a lot of different people, but mostly I would like to say....I forgive you.” Love is wonderful, and it sucks. And it will take forever and beyond to understand why we love how we love and what it all means. Overall, love is a lesson of acceptance: something we teenagers really need a lesson in. We need to accept that we all love in different ways and to respect that and nurture it rather than shun and hurt it. I would love to see that acceptance come about. Imagine what would happen just in our life ... imagine what it would be like if that acceptance of differences happened all over the world... “After all, love is a powerful force” “I don’t understand you, and I’m not sure I ever will.” My best friends: I don’t know what I would do without you. You are like family to me, and there are a few of you whom I can truly talk to about anything. I trust you, which takes a lot for me to do, but I am willing with you because you seem to trust me. You know everything and can read me like a book at times, which I love (though it can be scary) because it makes opening up easier. I hope you know that I am here for you, as you have been there for me. I love you with all of my heart and cannot thank you enough for all that you have done and being there when I needed someone most. If
it were not for your advice, your care, your time, and your support, I’m not sure I could have come this far. And for that, thank you, and I hope to never lose you. Please, always be there for me when I need you most as I will be for you. Some of my words of wisdom: BE YOURSELF. Ha! Isn’t that so cliché? But it is full of truth. The people who matter are not going to care about how much you fit in. They are awesome and care about you, no matter what. FIND THESE PEOPLE AND SURROUND YOURSELF WITH THEM. They will be there for you to cheer you up or make you smile. Just remember that they have added you to their circle and also need a shoulder to lean on. EMBRACE YOUR INNER SELF AND SHOW PEOPLE YOU’RE AMAZING DESPITE SOMEWHAT EMBARRASSING TALENTS. This is a courage that not many people have and when people see it, they will respect you all the more. I know that I don’t have this courage, but I wish I did. PURSUE YOUR PASSIONS. Just because everyone else is doing one thing, it doesn’t mean that you can’t do what you love. CELEBRATE ANYTHING. Just because it is not a holiday doesn’t mean you can’t have a party. It’s what life is about. History repeats itself. MAKE FUNNY FACES IN THE MIRROR. The power of a smile is underrated. I am almost done. A few more things: DON’T BE SERIOUS ALL THE TIME. Live life to its fullest. And never fall asleep in class because people will make fun of you. It’s an automatic right. “I sat here and stared at an empty page for a good amount of time trying to think of a confession to type up that doesn’t involve you. I couldn’t come up with anything. I hate to admit it, but I still think about you a lot, and I have no clue why. I wish you didn’t take advantage of everything, and I wish things were different no w. Good luck with everything because even if we don’t talk, I know that you really need it.”
To all girls out there are still single: “You don’t need a guy to make you beautiful. I know you want a relationship so bad and you want to have someone who loves you, trust me, I want it too! But you can’t let that define you. You’re so much more than that, and you deserve the guy who’ll only date you after you believe in yourself.” “You really didn’t hurt me. The future is always unwritten. By the end of it all, ends will justify means.” “You are my best friend; I love you! I can’t even describe how much you mean to me. I can talk with you on the phone for hours and never have to worry about awkward silences or small talk. We can spend hours yelling at each other then be back to our normal selves in an instance. But we only argue because we care about ... and want what’s best for each other. Our equal amounts of stubbornness make it difficult to agree sometimes. We fight because we care each other. Is it selfish to stay friends with you? I don’t know what will happen to me if you leave or if I push you away, but I just want what’s best for you..and I want you to be happy; I want you to be healthy; and I want you to be a good person. “He has the most beautiful smile in the world.” “There are certain people in my life that I couldn’t do without. Sometimes I say things I don’t mean and for that I am truly sorry. I would like to think that usually you don’t take me seriously. I have tried to cut back and become down-to-earth, but I am who I am and wonder if I will ever change. The truth is my life would be much worse off without you.”
