MH Letters #16: An open letter to my pal Jodie

” Dear Jodie,
I was thinking, we don’t know each other for that long. But in that short period we really have become great friends and I honestly couldn’t think of a life without talking to you now. You have such a positive impact on all our lives and that is something I wanted to thank you for.

It’s so lovely when someone constantly supports you. I guess a lot of people have said that to me over the last weeks, if they meant it? I don’t know. But I do know how it feels so have someone supporting you all the time. No matter what. And that person happens to be you, Jodie. It such an incredible feeling when someone just wants you to shine and is there to support and applaud you. So thank you so much for being an angel.

I guess we are starting to get to know each other a bit better, but there a few things that are so brilliant about you and I want you to know that. You are one of the kindest persons ever. I’ve never seen such pure kindness and sweetness personified and you are one of the reasons I’m inspired every day to continue. You also are very encouraging in everything you say and do. In every blogpost you write, you make me feel appreciated and you give me the strength to keep fighting and for that I’m forever grateful.

As for your blog, you have the talent to write so that everyone is involved in the story. You share very personal stories, but they are so powerful. Your message is powerful and you might be the strongest person I know and I’m so incredibly proud of you and your achievements. Talking about achievements, you are in your last year at uni and I wish you all the luck pal. You are going to slay it and I’m just next to you. Cheering you on and supporting you.

You do different things with charities and organisations that improve the rights of the less fortunate or that raise awareness for a variety of things. That’s so admirable and I couldn’t be more proud to have a friend that does such brilliant things.

I love how I learn things about you and from you every day. It’s so nice to learn about stuff I don’t know enough about and that’s where you educate me. I’m very grateful for you on that part as well. You are honest and tell me like it is and to be honest, I needed that kind of friend as well. You have given my life a new sort impulse and buddy, you are brilliant.

From what I’ve gathered these last days and weeks, you are a brilliant, kind, supportive, sweet, beautiful, lovely, intelligent and funny woman. A woman who fights mental health with her all and at the same time offers comfort to others as well. I’m so fortunate to have such a brilliant friend and I will always cherish you sweet, sweet Jodie.

I hope you are proud of yourself, because I am so proud of you. I know you are going to do great things and I’m so proud to call you my friend. Thank you so much for being you. Shine on you beautiful diamond, shine on!

Your buddy,
