I may not remember the details, but I’m glad to still remember important life events and people who helped me grow and be the person I am today.
With that said, I am going to be talking about my favorite memory of all time.
This memory is not exactly one particular event. It involves one person and a series of events that occurred throughout our friendship.
This person is no longer a part of my life. We drifted off a couple of years ago after over seven years of friendship. But I will always cherish the friendship that we had, and I am so grateful for having had them in my life.
I saw them as a friend, a sibling, and a parental figure as they were a couple of years older than I was.
During our friendship, they taught me so much about life and enjoying every moment of it. They inspired me to get out of my comfort zone and do wacky things once in a while.
They were there for me through my good and bad times.
One of my fondest memories with them was all our last-minute adventures, including trips to McDonald’s past midnight just because we were craving their ice cream.
I remember they’d pick me up from school and we’d hang out the rest of the day until I had to go home. We’d play tons of card games together with our other close friends. We’d hang out in some of the most random places we could think of and go exploring. We’d walk around and enjoy the serenity of the stars, moon, and skies.
And then we’d have moments of going to the beach, sitting in the car (sometimes eating food), and just talking about all of our deepest thoughts and feelings about life, about work, school, everything, and anything.
I trusted them with my life.
They were the type of person who would answer a call, even during the latest hours of the night, and be there for you no matter what situation you’re in. They’re the type to motivate you and give you positive energy.
They were also the type who would call you out on your bs. They know when to put their foot down and stand up for themselves. They avoided asking others for help and would rarely show their most delicate emotions and thoughts.
They made me laugh in more ways than I could count & I felt genuinely happy whenever I would be in their presence.
I sometimes do wonder what it would be like if they were still in my life. But I’ve also learned to accept that their time in my journey has probably been completed, and all we are now to each other are memories of the past.
Wherever they are now, I hope they’re happy. I hope they’re doing what they love and are going through life with the same passion they’ve always had.
