My Best Friend Is Gone

Dear Diary,

My pet rabbit died a month ago. I raised him from a baby and he was with me for 10 years, over half my life. I don’t know how to function without him. I cry almost everyday but at this point everyone just expects me to move on because he was “just a pet” and I’m not a little kid. He was my best friend. He helped me keep going. He was always there for me when no one was. I miss him everyday. I feel empty without him, but I also want to make him proud by accomplishing all of my dreams and goals. I just wish he was there to tell in person about it.
