This probably comes as a big surprise and I’m sorry if it’s something you’d rather not have, but you are truly one of the most important people in my life and I want people to know how special you are. You are a brilliant human who makes the world better and more complete by shining your light on everything. So this letter is dedicated to the wonderful soul that is you, Sian!
I think it was after one of the #TalkMH chats that you started to follow me and sent the first message. I can’t thank you enough for doing that, because that basically started a fantastic friendship and to this day I’m so, so happy that we are such good mates. It’s one of those things that I’m really grateful for the internet and the opportunities it gives us.
I remember being at a very bad place at the time and contemplating very serious things. But you were there for me. Every single day. Talking to me, listening and helping me. I can’t thank you enough for helping me get through those very dark days and always being there for me. You still are here for me when I need and I am so incredibly grateful for you. I’m so lucky to have your friendship.
I’ve learnt so much from you. From blogging, to my English, to new passions and topics. I’ve learnt about your education, your work, your hobbies and what you value in life. You are always honest with me and that’s something I really, really appreciate. But I feel so proud of you. You are profoundly beautiful buddy. I have seen you grow over the months and it makes me feel so proud. I’ve seen you grow into this beautiful young woman you are. More confident. Appreciating yourself and others. Taking time for yourself and always being that incredibly kind and supportive friend.
You make a lot of people smile every week with your amazing twitter chat ‘A Film Club’. I’m so glad I found it and joined it. Not only do I talk about film every week – well I try to haha – and discover new blogs about films. I also made some new friends and gained some interesting perspectives on the film industry and blogging about those things. It’s great that you are so passionate about film, because I used to be and by following this chat again, that little fire in me started to become bigger. Thank you so much for that!
I absolutely love your blog. It’s one of the most unique blogs I’ve seen. Ever. I have honestly read every blogpost you wrote and that might sound a little bit like a stalker, but it’s the truth. I love the variety of the things you write about. Mental Health, films, appreciating nature, going out on weekends, books and everything in between. It’s like some sort of therapy for me to read your blog. Again, this might sound weird haha, but I promise you it helps me. Your writing style is amazing, engaging and it makes me want to read more and more. I believe I read more than 10 posts in one sitting once!
One thing that I like so much about your blog is there ‘5 rad things’-series. It’s so cool and it makes me really appreciate more things! Also, let’s talk about the word rad. Since I’ve known you, I tend to use it more and more. It makes me feel cool, just like you. It’s a friendship I have with you, were I can honestly say that you are my ‘bro’. That does sound weird, but I love you like family man. You have been so positive and always encourages me. I appreciate it more than you know.
I would love for you to explore your poetry more, because I think it’s really amazing. You have talent and I think if you would write it more often, it would only grow and it’s amazing for everyone to see that. I genuinely think you are destined for great things my friend and I will there with you, every step of the way!
But above all, you are an amazing person. You are kindness personified, you give new definition to being supportive and lovely. You have always been there for me, building me up and I know I’m not the only one. It’s amazing to see you support others and I really see them grow. All because of your brilliant personality, you enable them to shine more. As I’m writing this, I’m tearing up because you are such an angel to this world.
You always listen to what I’ve to say and that is really valued. You mean a great deal to me and I’m always here for you. In good and bad times. Our conversations are the reason I smile when I’m feeling very depressed and it always leaves me in a better mood. You always make me laugh and talking about food, films and the future makes me feel so much better. We better smash that steak pie you mentioned before bro!
You are incredibly funny and witty, your little puns always make me laugh so hard. You are very inspiring, motivating and educating. You inspire me to do be a better human, to keep on working on myself, to keep on being kind, to keep on spreading love and kindness. You inspire me to continue blog and be confident. I can honestly say that my confidence levels going up, is solely because of your influence and for that, I can’t thank you enough. You are so intelligent and I can honestly talk to you about anything. You know so much about so many different topics, but if you don’t know, you’ll admit it and that’s what I really think is a strength.
Talking about strength, you are the strongest person out there. You strength, perseverance and resilience is admirable. It’s a sign for me that you are so strong and it makes me feel motivated to keep on fighting for everything. You are beautiful in every sense of that word. Beautiful inside and out. I love the way you are and I love the way you look. You are a gem, Sian.
You’ve been a fantastic friend and I know you’ll continue to be. You have touched my heart and soul with your kindness and please know that I’ll always be here for you. And we definitely need to meet and smash all the food, because we need to, well… food innit?!
Your name is absolutely amazing and I always had an attraction to that name, but to see such a beautiful person go with that name, is something that restored my faith in this beautiful world. Never change Sian, you are beautiful diamond and I hope you shine on. Because the world needs your light and positivity, you make this world complete.
I hope you are well and I hope I did you justice with this letter. Lots of love.
