Letter to my own dear friend

Dear Jane,

Happy birthday, sweetie, and many, many happy returns!

for you

I’m guessing you’re celebrating with a bottle of wine and probably a video conference with your man who’s too far away by far today. What can I say about our friendship?

Well, for a start I can say “thank you”. Thank you for being there for me through those long, depressed years, those anxious, heart-wrenching months, those hopeful, happy days, those angry, anguished moments. Thank you for believing in me when I stopped believing in myself, for listening without allowing me to wallow, for challenging self-doubt, self-pity and negativity. Thank you for the laughs, the long telephone conversations and the hurried texts. For your energy, your enthusiasm, your generosity – thank you.

Have I been there for you as much as you’ve been there for me? I fear not. But the beauty of our friendship is that it thrives untended when necessary. That’s not to say that we don’t give it a little tlc when we can – we do, just not always together and at the same time! Life is changing now for both of us and I hope that time for our friendship will always be high on the agenda.

With you I have always been free to be myself. You know me, you usually get where I’m coming from and your hugs are some of the warmest I have ever known. Things haven’t always been easy for you either over the past few years, but you keep on keeping on and I know that there are good things ahead. Whenever you doubt yourself, whenever you have those “loss of confidence” days that hit us all,  look back on all that you have achieved and remember you don’t have to be superwoman. The fact that you have so many good friends is a testament to you.

You mean the world to me, my best girl-pal. Have good day! xxx
