A Love Letter To A Best Friend by Chelsea Fagan
If you need someone — how they make you feel, what they do for you, how they keep you whole — then you don’t actually love them, you just love the role they play in your life. The further you can push away from that need, the closer you’ll get to loving the human.
(This is an idea from Joko Beck’s Everyday Zen, which I *highly highly highly* recommend for anxious and/or ADD types, but this is true for everyone.)
Look, I know how tough it is for you to say goodbye, so I’ll say it. Maybe you’re right. Maybe we will see each other again. But just in case we don’t I want you to know how much you’ve meant to me. I’ll never be able to shake you. Whenever I see a big pair of feet or a cheesy mustache, I’ll think of you. Whenever I smell month-old socks, I’ll think of you. And the next time somebody nails my shoe to the floor. And when somebody gives me a martini that tastes like lighter fluid. I’ll miss you. I’ll miss you… a lot. I can’t imagine what this place would have been like if I hadn’t found you here.
