Stay with Me

Please let this wish come true.

The truth is
I still miss you,
my friend.

Days like today catch me off guard.
The ache in my chest where your memory remains.

2011 was a huge improvement from 2010. I lived by myself for a whole year, in fact I signed a new lease for the same apartment. This is the first time I've lived anywhere for more than a year my whole adult life.
I asked for a raise at work and got it. Then 5 months later I got another one.
I went to Spain!!!! My first trip to Europe! I am so glad I went but it was a very different experience than what I imagined.
I continued to do well in school.
I decided to take control of my health and I finally do not have stomach problems.
I forgave a friend and apologized to her and her husband for my part in the situation.
I learned which of my friends will truly be there for me and which ones will not and you know what that's ok. I love my friends but some are better at different things than others. Some of my friends show their love in a different ways. I just have to keep my expectations of them grounded in reality.
I turned 25! I'm not sure if it was turning 25 or traveling in Europe by myself but I feel so much more confident in myself. I feel very secure in who I am.

2011 was a year of improvements. I feel very different than I did at the beginning of the year. Nothing drastic happened to change me but I feel changed. 2011 was a slow gradual metamorphous. I hope 2012 continues in the same pattern.
