MH Letter #2: An open letter to my buddy Mel

“Dear Melissa

I don’t know where to start to be honest. I don’t know where to start other than with these two words: Thank you. Thank you so much for being there for me, thank you for talking to me, but most of all thank you for being you.

I remember the end of the summer where I was struggling a lot. Struggling with diagnose of my Anxiety, Depression and OCD. I thought I was lost, stuck and not ready to confront any form of light yet. As the days grew darker and the light seemed lost forever, it was your soul shining bright that pulled me back to the light. You were my angel.

I’ve made a lot of friends since then who are all very supportive and lovely in their own way, but I’ve come to realise that it wasn’t possible if it wasn’t for you. You took time out of your life to talk to me, support me, reassure me and help me. You took time to get to know me, learning about my flaws and my qualities. Always remembering me that I’m loved and showed me the way to go, even when you were struggling yourself. And for that I’m so so grateful. I’m one lucky guy to call you my friend.

It’s great that you check in once a while, just to see how I am doing and to have a little chat. You never fail to answer my messages, be it on twitter or whatsapp. You are truly a treasure to us all and I’ve told a lot of my online friend about you, because you inspire us every day.

There hasn’t been a day where I didn’t ask myself, how would Mel be doing on this day and during the times you had to take time for selfcare and selflove – which is fantastic and I salute you – I genuinely missed talking to you. You are like a big sister to me and I care for you.

Not only are you uncommonly kind and sweet. You tweets crack me up – I mean laughing obviously, not anything else.. – and your care & love for people fills me with joy. You are not only such a nice person to me, but to everyone else! You are incredible Mel. I’ll cherish you forever.
During our conversations I’ve noticed how brilliant, creative and intelligent you are. AND LET’S TALK ABOUT YOUR BLOG OMG. It’s amaaaaazing! Your blogname is as brilliant as your content and I’m inspired by it every day. You were one of my blogging idols and to get to know your idol is a bit controversial people always say. But you are the idol that is different. I love that we are friends now and you make this world so much better, by shining your light on it. Never never never forget how much you mean to all of us.

I would also like to thank you for introducing me to your friend and now mine – at least I consider him my mate now haha- Josh. You have made me aware of him and his kindness. His blog and his support are brilliant and that’s why our community is so valued by everyone, because of the ability to share our experiences and our lovely friends. So once again thank you so much.

I hope you know, I’m here for you. Always. For a chat. For a laugh. For support. I’m here for you, because I’m your friend. Sending you all the love and hugs.

Your friend,
