Next on the “chopping block” is JR. JR is a long story, to say the least. I’ve known this person for about 10 or 11 years and I have a lot to say about JR. JR is a great friend, a scarred soul, wise, crazy, lonely, self-destructive and many, many more things; but most of all, JR is a much bigger person than they know. That is a hell of a lot more than can be said of most people I know. JR, on the surface, seems to have decent or at least normal self-esteem; however, if you pay close enough attention, you will see that that is not the case at all. In fact, JR’s self-esteem is as bad, if not worse than my own, and unfortunately, that fact has led JR to be self-destructive in many ways. JR has been working on this for a while now, and is doing very, very well; but for a very long time, I was genuinely afraid that JR’s low self-opinion would lead to a bad ending – and sooner rather than later. There are lots of things that have gone on and probably still are going on in JR’s life that have scarred him to his very soul, and I worry about him. A lot sometimes. I’m very proud of you, JR, for how far you have come in the past couple of years. I want to say that I’m sorry for the way I acted towards you after what happened before you left here.. I was a horrible person and an unbelievably horrible friend and I hope that you can forgive me for that abomination. I think that you and I have several similar problems, situations, life views, ect… and that is one of the many reasons that I think that we were meant to meet and become family. You have taught me more than you know and have saved me from myself more times than you’ll ever know. I love you!
