I had been dreading last night for months. Last night was the night I said goodbye to my best friend. Last night was the night I said goodbye to my missing piece. Last night was the night I said goodbye to the only person that has ever meant the world to me, and always will.
My best friend, Tristan Rebbettes, is moving to Australia. While it’s not the end of the world, I will truly miss him and already do. He taught me how to enjoy life, express who I am, love the things I love, he taught me who I am as a person.
We have been best friends for nine years now. We first met each other at Year 7 Camp where I took the mickey out of him for having a photograph of a teddy (I admit, it was a postcard – but my point still stands to this day!) Since then, we have been inseparable!
Everything reminds me of him now. We’ve lived together, spent so many Christmas’, New Years’, Easter’, Birthday’s, Valentine’s Day’s together, everyday of the past nine years together, that it really isn’t going to be the same without him.
We’ve traveled here there and everywhere together – Cardiff, Bristol, Brighton, Dartmouth, Portugal, London.. The list is endless! I have shared so many memories with him, more so than I have with anyone else!
He has taught me how to love music, and has opened my mind to a whole new way of living! We’ve been to countless gigs together, seen thousands of films, eaten millions of meals, and nothing will ever compare to these!
I know it’s selfish, but I don’t want him to leave. It’s not the same not being with him. While I know it’s for the best I wish him all the luck in the world for his new adventure. He is an amazing chef, one I’m proud to say I know. He is amazing at what he does, and amazing at who he is.
I couldn’t be more proud of him!
I have spent an amazing nine years with him, and while it’s not come to an end, it’s going to be hard not seeing him every week. Not speaking to him every day. Not being near him for years.
I can’t get into words how much he means to me, but it’s safe to say, I have never loved anyone like I’ve loved him. He literally means the world to me.
It’s time to start your own adventure – I just hope that one day, I can share it with you!
