Great friends will listen and comfort you, but the ones who are a part of your heart live through every good and bad moment with you. Here's to my best friend, the kind weirdo with a sharp tongue.
True friends aren't the ones who make your problems disappear. They are the ones who won't disappear when you are facing problems.
When was the last time you thanked your bestie? Hopefully, this small letter of gratitude will help you realize what makes your friend for life such a vital part of your existence.
Thank you for the honesty
You're mean. Well, at least that's what brutal honesty sounds like, though I deserve reality checks.
Your no BS approach made me a lighter, less complicated person. And that's because you're not afraid to call me out, even at times I thought I was doing the right thing.
I wasn't, and you gave me clarity.
Thank you for comforting my overdramatic nature
Luckily enough, I found you, and I don't have to apologize for having a bit of an overdramatic tendency. I am honored to have you as a friend, but I can't promise I'll stop calling you with my "emergencies" in the middle of the night.
Yes, I understand that you might be sleeping, just as you know that I need you to keep me grounded.
Thank you for all the laughs
From the moment we met, your sarcasm matched mine, and no one can deny that's an excellent way to start a friendship.
It's especially amusing when people try to figure out why we are laughing. We can't explain it because, over the years, it's like we speak the language only known to the two of us.
Thank you for calming my overthinking mind
You're the yin to my yang. And my yang's always in an overthinking mode.
You're my person, and I make your life more exciting while you make mine calmer. Exciting isn't always right, but the calmness feels awesome all the time.
Thank you for those little big things
It's spooky, but I am pretty sure you can read my mind at this point. You know when I'm broke, or when I need to vent.
You also understand that I am not the best at smalls talks, so thanks for always saving the day. Did I mention how grateful I am that you love my dogs as much as I do? That's not a small thing, but you made it look so effortless and so natural.
Thank you for loving me when I didn't love myself
A good friend can help, but a bestie can save your life. Thank you for believing in me and loving me, despite all those times when I forgot how to love myself.
A true friend is someone who sees the pain in your eyes while everyone else believes the smile on your face.
All the tough love, it was probably tougher for you, but overcoming obstacles is easier when you're around.
Thank you for saving me from fashion disasters
You are annoyingly polished looking, while I am a bohemian experiment gone wrong.
So, instead of letting me leave the house looking like I came straight from the 70s, your humor made me a better dresser. Though, it's safe to assume that you'll be saving me from fashion disasters when we are in our 70s.
Thank you for being open-minded
We don't share a lot: our tastes in clothes, music, movies are very different. At first, you had to put up with my vintage obsessions, and because you were cool with that, you taught me how to be a better person.
Instead of calling me out every time, you made me learn to be less judgmental. It opened the door of my mind, so I am no longer stuck in a tunnel vision.
Thank you for arguing with me
People seem to overlook the importance of a good fight. But we accepted each other, and that led to some memorable arguments.
Those disagreements, smaller or bigger ones, and the way we handled them are the reasons why this friendship can and will last. Each argument brought us closer, to the point where we try to argue and end up laughing instead.
Thank you for being you
Most of all, I'm grateful that you're unapologetically yourself. It's comforting knowing that you can be a strong, independent woman while staying true to yourself.
You inspire and challenge me. We've been through a lot of good things and just as many unpleasant moments. It's not like we have the same life aspirations, but that's the beauty of having you in my life.
What do you love about your best friend? What annoys you? And what makes you grateful for them on this roller-coaster we call life?
