Insanely absentminded(means I will probably forget to respond to your comment... sorry in advance :()

Last but not least... Smile!! It'll help :)

To The Friends I Never Had

September 22, 2020

FREE WRITING

20
To the people I ignored.
To the one I should have smiled at. 
To the piece of gum I should have shared.
To the person I should have helped with homework. 
I'm sorry. 
I'm sorry I couldn't be brave enough to smile. 
I'm sorry I couldn't bring myself to offer to help. 
I should have, but I didn't. 
We both lost someone who could have been our friend. 
Next time, I will try to be better. 
I cannot promise that I will see you, but I can promise that I will remember you, 
I will remember you when I offer a stick of gum to the kid who sits next to me in class. 
I will remember how much I lost by not being brave enough to speak. 
I will bring myself to smile. To offer the gum. To help with homework. 
In memory of you, I will help. 
I lost my chance for you, but I will help others. 
I will help because of you. 
The person I should have helped with homework. 
The one I should have smiled at. 
The person I ignored. 
I remember.

    wow. That is so true and you said it in just the right way. We do need to try our best to befriend people instead of staying with the same people our whole lives.

    Making new friends is important, but can be exhausting if you want to do all the time-- but that doesn't mean I'm not always going to feel like I'm missing out lol. This is a super relatable feeling, you conveyed it well. :)
