10 Priceless Reasons for Having You as The Best Friend

Great friends will listen, comfort you, but the ones who are a part of your heart, they live every good and bad thing with you. Here’s to my best friend, 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 your 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 the 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 on, 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 it’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 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 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, 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’re annoyingly polished looking, while I am bohemian experiment gone wrong.

So, instead of letting me leave the house as 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 70.

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 by being cool with it, you taught me how to be a better person.

Instead of calling me out every time, you made me learn for myself 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 leads 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 much of unpleasant ones. 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?
