Hey guys, how’ve you been? Sorry for not writing for so long, I have been busy with life/work etc. Today one of my very close friend wrote something about me and it made me sort of emotional. It was the most beautiful thing anyone has every said or written for me. I honestly..don’t have any words right now, ’cause my words would just..not be able to describe how I feel. I use to have strong belief in the famous quote “A friend in need is a friend indeed” and I was starting to believe in “A friend in need is a pest indeed” I know, sounds weird and bad, but she changed my mind. A friend in need is a friend indeed. She’s helped me get through a lot in my life and I am honoured to be her friend. I’m gonna post what she wrote for me… Here it is. Thanks so much, weirdo. <3
Everyone has someone who is significant and influential to them. As a young person growing up, I, like everyone else have someone who is very influential to me and is a significant person in my life. Most people who are influential in our lives are our parents or teachers. Fortunately for me the most influential person for me is one of my closest friends, whose name is Asmeen Khan. She is one of the most amazing people on this earth; she’s always been there for me whenever I needed her. Asmeen is one of the people who have inspired me to live life like there is no tomorrow. She has encouraged me to do many things, which I would never dreamed that I would do. I consider myself very lucky to have such a good friend.
Like most teenagers my age, I have had several problems that I could not deal with alone. If it was not for my friend Asmeen, I probably would be stuck on all of them and be no where today. For one, my parents argue a lot and as young girl learning new things about the world, I did not know how to deal with the issue. Luckily, for me, Asmeen was there. She was able to help me get over the issue by telling me to ignore their arguments because it was certain to go away. Asmeen was correct, because as soon as I was able to ignore the arguments that occurred in my house, they disappeared as quickly as it started. I was grateful for her kindness and for her knowledge. I was thankful that someone was by my side and was able to help me through that situation. It may not mean much too many people, but it did to me because I was always alone, until she came along trying to help me. Asmeen always worried about me and tried to fix everything that I could not. For example, one time I was crying in my room alone, and I told Asmeen about, she tried everything in her power to try out why I was crying and how she could help me stop. I owe many things in my life to her, like the brilliant smile I am able to produce every day.
Asmeen was able to influence me many times in life. She was able to change my perspective of life. I always thought life was full of cruelness and suffering, until I met Asmeen. She was able to influence me into believing that life has hope and many beautiful creations in it. Today, I thank her for changing my perspective of life, because I am able to live freely and enjoy each day. She was also able to influence the way I feel about school. I use to hate getting up each morning and going to school, but Asmeen who was home schooled taught me that going to school and meeting new people each day is a wonderful experience, that I should treasure. So each day I go to school now, I look forward to going to school and learning new things each day. My friend, Asmeen has also influenced the way I am to people. She taught me to be nice and sweet to other humans who are like me. I was usually mean and terrible to other people, but now that I have changed I am pleasant and caring to others around me. So once again, I am honored and thankful to have her as a friend.
In the end, I thank almost everyone who was influential in my life, because it is something that was able to change who I am today. As for my friend, Asmeen she is still one of my closest friends today and will always be. I am really appreciative that she came into my life. I hope that she will continue to be there for me and influence my life. It is a very important thing to me that she came into my life, because she was able to change it in big ways and minor ones to. As, I write this essay today, I know inside of me that she will never leave me alone in this world.
Tell me how you find it, 'cause she'll be reading it too!
