HELLO! Today I’m ranting. About people and places. And it goes something like this.
It has always bothered me so much, the idea that in the blink of an eye, someone who you say means the world to you, and they agree, doesn’t put on effort. Says, “we lost touch.” That just irks me. The quantity of time you spend with a person does not dictate their importance in your life.
I’ve also always loved the idea of traveling, but have never been able to relate to someone wanting to move far away from loved ones, without a care as to when they’ll be seeing them again. To me, a place is just a thing without the people you love. I don’t know, if you disagree, please enlighten me.
Along those lines, I thought I’d share with you the best people in the world. I am very biased in that I have the best friends in the world.
Family. My parents are the best people in the world. My older sister, Krystal, is so strong-minded and caring. Courtney is an independent free spirit.
Sammy. Sam is my best friend. We are like two peas in a pod when we’re together. We care about each other so much, and it’s nothing but fun and laughs. She is the most non-judgemental person I have ever known.
Daniella. This girl is LITERALLY my other half. We think exactly the same way and have a very similar personality. Our lives always fall in the same patterns, too. Daniella and I talk about things that I don’t know how to talk about with anyone else. She is such an unmistakably compassionate and genuine person.
Noah, Kodie, and Jake. I truly think of these guys as brothers. I am so close with each of them in different ways, and can tell all of them literally anything. They are incredible people that have shown me so much kindness.
Haylie and Chloe. They are best friends and sisters and words cannot begin to explain the impact they’ve had on my lifetime. With Haylie I have had some of the deepest, most-life changing conversations and she is the most selfless person in the world. Chloe has this incredible personality in which she is the funniest person on earth, but also the wisest.
Natalie. Natalie has a heart of gold. We have had some of the most incredible conversations, and she is such an active and inspirational person. She is a role model to anyone, and I am so blessed that she is such a vital part of my life.
Sara. Sara and I have so much in common, and she is one of very few people I have met with an eating disorder. She is an indescribably kind person, and we really and truly lift each other up. I now don’t know how I lived without her.
Kaitlyn. Kaitlyn has been in my life for well over half of it, and we know each other like the back of our hands, yet we’re still always growing together as people. She has such a huge heart, and is so thoughtful.
I am truly missing so many people that are in my life every day, changing it and making me better. I think sometimes having meeting new people gets misconstrued as boasting about having too many friends.
I’m not talking about myself. I’m boasting about the amazing people I am LUCKY to know. And it amazes me that there are more out there. I just want to get to know everyone, because I truly think that’s the best way to grow. Sharing perspectives and learning from others is an incredible experience.
I hope to never stop growing in this way, but also to keep these people in my life forever. People aren’t replaceable.
