Bea, it has just come to my attention that you are leaving. I want to leave you with a thank you note while I can. (I know, a whole lot of cringe ahead... )
We met on Live Chat. You, the cheery challenger (*smiles) and me, the laid back childish I-don't- know-what. It was fun chatting with someone who, unbeknownst to me at the time, would turn my vision right-side up. I could practically hear your voice, even when we never video called until months later.
When I had my outburst and showed my inner me, you didn't judge, like my classmates did. You didn't judge the fact that I hung out with children and teenagers either younger than me, or older. Even when I felt myself shouting in your faces, imagining bewilderment and anger, ready to fire back at me. You didn't judge me when, during our call, one of my classmates called us lesbian. ( And I'm not. I have nothing against, I just hope to be single. ) But you were one of the people who knew me best then, and supported me until I left for high school applications.
Our fights about oblivion, don't you remember? They were fun, though you obviously had more debate experience than me. I don't care. I was honestly mad when I lost, but not mad at you. Mad at my own self for not smarting myself up, if that is a thing. It isn't your fault, just my own habit when I lose. But it was a victory for the happiness campaign in my mind. ( Would you mind bringing Keefe here? )
I want you to know that when I come back, or if I do, I will miss you as much as I miss everyone else who left, either temporarily or permanently. Sage, Ella, Eliza, Chloe, you name it. So while I'm here, I do hope to see you again, even if it is the last time on this wiki.
This isn't a goodbye letter in my heart. This is a thank you letter. For everything you've made me become. Not a youngster shrinking in the corner, but a teenager, growing up, making new friends, and most importantly, learning to be confidant. Thank you Bea.
Mia, I don't know what to tell you. I haven't decided if I am leaving or not, but I am taking a break. I never realized I held this much of an impact on you, and I will always be thankful that you became more confident. You do deserve to feel good about yourself, even if your friends are younger than you. With all that is going on, I just want to say that you have become stronger, and you have become braver. Not because of me, no not at all, but because you have learned to see yourself differently. You learned to see yourself as who you are, and not what people think. I didn't help with that, you helped yourself.
You became someone who left an impact on me. Not because of what you have gone through, but how strong you stayed all the way through it. You are an amazing person, and I should be the one who is thankful. Meeting you was definitely something positive that happened in my life, and I have no regrets about our friendship.
I'm glad we had those conversations, because everything we talked about made me a better person in so many ways. Dealing with that brat turned out to be a good thing, because he stopped hurting you afterwards.
We will talk again, I can promise that much. You are an incredible person, and it just wouldn't be fair if we didn't. Thank you for being my friend, and thank you for helping me become who I am today.
