Hi guys! Back in December, Dziey created the five day challenge. I did mean to do it earlier, but for some reason I had it in a different place to the rest of my blog to-do list, so I never really got around to it… Until now! So, let’s a-gooooo…
Three things you want to say to three different people.
I won’t name you, because who knows if you might read this? Let’s just call you John, someone I’m friends with.
John, I understand that you hate life. You hate school, you’re not a big fan of yourself, or whatever. One thing I can’t forgive, though, is that you take it out on us, your friends. We’re a pretty small group (just five of us), and to me that means we need to stick together. But for some reason, I find you snapping at us, and attacking us for stuff we can’t control.
I’m not saying you have to love us. In fact, you’ve actually gotten a lot better and acting like you like us. I just wish you’d tell us what’s going on with you, instead of being a horrible guy for stuff we don’t even know we’re doing wrong. I don’t mind if you tell me my flaws; I like to know how I can become the best person I can be! Just do it nicely, please?
(these are the disabled kids at school I help out with). This is just a quick letter to let you know how loved you all are. Your situation SUCKS. You’re basically trapped in your class, with kids you might not even like. There’s some of you who I understand need help, and I understand that they sometimes freak out, and maybe have a tantrum. And yes, I feel so heartbroken for you guys. It must be awful knowing you can’t control what’s going on in your head, and ending up in trouble for it, or hurting other people. So, I forgive you for what you can’t control, and I hope you know I’m there for you.
And for the rest of you, the more capable ones, it must be even worse. You’re almost there with the mainstream kids, but not enough that you can get out of this class. When the tantrums go on, your work is suffering. You don’t get all the attention you deserve, because there are others in there that need it more. So for you, I want you to know that I truly do love you to pieces. Even if I can’t stop to talk to you because I have to help someone else, I just hope you know that you are appreciated.
Dear Blog Squad,
A much happier letter for you guys! And a lot of you will probably read this!
I want you to know how much I love you. Each and every one of you, whether I talk to you every day or hardly at all. I do go on about how fab you all are a lot, but I think you deserve to know it again! You’ve changed my life. That might sound dramatic, but you really have changed my life. I’ve found friends who aren’t afraid to talk about all the topics in the world, even if they seem “too serious” for teenagers to be talking about. And with that, you’ve opened my eyes to a whole new world of things I never knew about. Even something as simple as the Muslim religion; I’m not expert, but I know a lot more now than I did before I met you.
On top of that, you make me happy. I love to see you succeed, and one of you is always doing something great! Such a huge range of greatness too – from your favourite replying to a tweet, to being published somewhere huge, to your first sale in your shop, or flirting with your crush. Whatever it is, you always come to celebrate with us, and it makes my day! On the flip side, we cheer each other up when we’re sad. I know I can talk to any of you about whatever awful thing is happening in my life. Even outside of the group chat, we DM each other if someone needs it. Luckily, I haven’t needed it yet, but it does diminish my worries knowing that I have such a supportive group of friends whenever I need them.
Although, I always need you. I go crazy when I go a whole day without popping in to say hi! Sometimes life does get in the way, but just know that if I’m not there, I wish I could be. For some reason I actually have to do school work…
In short, YOU ARE THE GREATEST. Here’s to inside jokes, stupid typos, and a meet up one day with my favourite internet people ❤
Lots and lots and LOTS of love, Victoria
So, there’s day one! This was so much fun to write, I’m so glad I decided to do this. Come back tomorrow for day two!
