Dear best friend,
I really fucked up
And I know you're giving me another chance
Even though I don't feel like I deserve one
So let me try this again
This letter thing
I didn't want to lose you
And I thought the best way to do that was to avoid triggering anything, ever
And I thought I was doing that
But now I realize that all I was doing was building up pressure in myself
Pressure that was unnecessary
And I guess it exploded
And I really fucked up
This much you already know, though
You've proven to me
That you are a far better person than I am
Far better than I ever could dream of being, honestly
And I am so blessed to have you in my life
To adventure with and laugh with and cry with and be with
If you'll still have me
We've still got concerts to go to
And celebrities to meet
And adventures to go on
Long drives and picnics and amusement parks and maybe even a few surprises along the way
I love you
I know that doesn't sound right
But I mean it
Whether it sounds right or not
And I will mean it with all of my heart for the rest of time
Even in the moments it may not sound right
I was wrong
And I know that
And I'm working on it
No one means more to me than you do
And I'm going to make it right
I'm going to try to
Because we're worth it
You're worth it
You always have been
Sometimes, the scary conversations
That you build up in your head
They work out.

I leave the tab open while I work...just in case.

Sometimes my friends invite me to go places, and I don't go. It's not that I don't like hanging out with them, because I do. It's just that sometimes I...get scared? Let...
