I’ve never really understood how to make friends that well. Don’t get me wrong, I have my select few throughout the high school and college days, but I’ve never really kept more than those. Maybe that’s why I didn’t have much concern with where I would be going and who I’d be around for my rotations. I mean, everyone keeps moving on with their lives. I figured I’d keep moving with mine as well. Maybe that was the ultimate flaw? How can you expect to keep people around when they are already leaving in your mind.
It’s been two years since I’ve gotten here. Well, 21 months if you want to be a bit more accurate. I never really knew what to expect. New place, new people. Heck, it was my first time leaving Jersey. I had so much to leave behind without knowing what I’d gain from the future. Part of me was excited, while at the same time I was freaked out. It was a lot to take in. I still remember those first couple of days. In all honesty, I don’t know where I’d be if I wasn’t invited out that first night. So for that I must thank you and will probably forever be in your debt for that. It really opened up a lot of doors for me. Different experiences and opportunities. Sorry things fell apart over the past couple of months. There really are no excuses.
So what have I gained at the end of all this? I may still be bad with the whole long term friend thing and stuff, but when you can wake up in the morning and find out about the stuff people have done for you just to keep you alive without even second guessing themselves. I imagine this is what they mean by actions speaking louder then words. So thanks for the memories. Thanks for taking care of me. Thanks for making me feel like I was a part of something. I never thought I’d miss something so much towards the end of my time in Grenada and I never thought I’d want to be a part of something even more. I hope we get to meet again in the future.
Two words have never pained me so much. I swear to become stronger. I promise you that.
