Welcome back to crazy little things! I hope everyone is doing ok and if you are not well that is ok too because you don’t have to be ok all the time as you are only human. Today will be a different type of post, I love doing my tip of the day because it really helps me because nine times out of ten it is to do with something I am dealing at the moment. Now and then though, I like to shake things up a bit and today is one of those days and this is the reason why…
Someone came into my life recently and has had a huge impact on it. I haven’t known you that long but I believe our paths crossed for a reason. I do believe that people come into our lives for a purpose and the reason can be good or bad but there is a lesson behind that person crossing your path. A few months ago I broke down to my partner because I just wanted someone to talk to too who could relate to my issues with my mother. I have tried therapy, and I have known deep down I needed someone who has walked in my shoes. I remember crying and begging the universe to please send me someone and crazy enough the universe did. Unfortunately, even though our paths have crossed, we now are having to head back on our own paths but I do hope our paths cross again someday.
So today post is a letter to a person who has changed my life in such a short amount of time. I know this is not my usual post, but there is a hidden tip of the day in this and that is we really can make a difference in this world whether you help one person or a hundred people no difference is too small.
I was sat here this evening just looking at the goodbye card I got you and there is so much I want to say but I just didn’t quite know how to put it. For all the friends that have come and gone in my life, you have had the biggest impact on me in such a small amount of time. Maybe the universe did send you but I honestly think it was my Nan watching over me that put you on my path. To be able to speak openly and honestly with someone who has gone through similar things as me and basically be broken in the same ways as myself has been fucking amazing I really don’t know how else to put it. I have always struggled to connect with people and kind of saw myself as an oddball but you have shown me a different mirror and now I don’t see an oddball I just see me.
We have shared our story with one another, we have moaned about work and even laughed about our dislike of people but most importantly we have listened to one another and never judged. In such a short amount of time, you have shown me love, care, and understanding that I haven’t really felt in such a long time. I am so grateful to have met such a strong, kind and caring person. You have shown me to believe in myself and to make my voice count and even if our paths never cross again (I hope they do.) I want you to remember you have made your voice count and that the pain you went through has helped someone else with their own pain.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Please tell your sister that I am so glad the book has helped release her from the pain and I hope her strength keeps on growing.
Take care all.
