I am a different person, a better person,
since we first became friends.
Your honesty helps me to see my weaknesses,
and your support helps me to turn them into strengths.
Thank you for not saying the things you think I want to hear, but for saying the things I need to know.
You’re one of the few people I trust when you tell
me that I’ve done well, because you are one
of the few who will tell me when I could do better.
You challenge me to be the best I can be… by accepting and appreciating me, you’ve helped me learn to accept and appreciate myself.
