To my best friend,
I believe everything in life happens for a reason. But sometimes I wonder how I got lucky enough to be able to call you my best friend. We haven’t seen each other in a while, I just wanted to tell you that I am thinking of you and I just wanted to tell you how much I love you.
As I grow older, I learn that it is easy to lose sight of your friends as your life takes you to new places and new experiences. But with you, it’s never really been a question. I always know that I can count on you to be there for me. People say that if your friendship has lasted for 8 years then it’ll last a lifetime, so I guess we’re stuck with each other.
So what I really wanted to say is thank you. Thank you for making me laugh at the most inappropriate times and places.
Thank you for accepting me for who I am. Weirdness and all. You are one of the only people I can be myself with because I know you won’t judge me in anyway.
Thank you for listening to my complaints. I complain a lot and you never seem to be bothered by it. Instead you just listen to me until I run out of steam. No matter how silly the complaint you will give me your undivided attention because you know that I just need someone to listen. Without you I think I might have gone crazy.
Thank you for voluntarily spending time with me. I know I can be crazy, annoying and just be a complete pain in the ass sometimes. You seem to accept me for who I am, no questions asked. You know when to give me some space and when to smother me with love. You understand that sometimes a girl just needs to spend a whole day watching movies, eating ice cream and lip syncing to her favourite songs.
Thank you for knocking some sense in me. I can be difficult sometimes. Especially when you tell me something I don’t want to hear. Thank you for telling me that “I am better than him” and that “That shirt is really ugly”. Honestly, without you I don’t know how’d I’d function in society.
I need you to know that I am your biggest cheerleader. I will cheer you on when something good happens in your life and I’ll also be there pushing you to keep going when you’re down. I just want you to know that rain or shine I’ll always be there for you because you are my other half. The yin to my yang. The peanut butter to my jelly. The salt to my pepper. You get what I mean.
My future is full of the unknown, like “Where I’ll live?” and “Who will I marry?” But of the few things that I am certain of, I know that you’ll be by my side. I have reserved a place for you at my wedding that may or may not happen.
You radiate beauty inside and out and I really hope that every person has someone like you in their lives.
I love you.
