Dear Best Friend,
It’s crazy to think that there was ever a time in my life when I didn’t know you. Who else in the world would I text when I’m walking down the street and think of the most random thing, laugh to myself, and say, “I should text her, she’ll get it.” And the best part is, you always do. You understand me in ways I almost don’t even understand myself.
I think people are put in each other’s lives for a reason, but sometimes I wonder how I got so lucky with you being my person. You have the biggest heart in the whole world and the love and compassion that you show for others, including me, is so special. You know me from the inside-out; what makes me happy and what makes me sad. It only takes an instant for you to know how I’m feeling, and if I’m upset, then you do everything you can to cheer me up. You’re the first person to ask me how I’m doing when I’m going through something, and then always follow through. When I’m lacking confidence, you build me up. You think I’m funny and laugh at my jokes. Basically, what I’m trying to say, is that you fill my life with an immense amount of joy, happiness, and love, and I’m eternally grateful.
If you think about it, it’s a little weird how we can talk for hours every day and still have so much to say. We’re okay with a little silence sometimes as long as we have each other’s company. Oh, and thanks for making “TMI” not a thing between us. Along the same lines, thank you for always treating everything I say with importance. I’ve never felt like something is too small to tell you and I promise to always do the same in return for you.
You’re everything I could ever ask for in a best friend, plus more. You’re my shoulder to cry on, a person to laugh with, a consistent breakfast/lunch/snack/dinner date, someone to sing terribly with, someone to dance around in my pajamas with, you’re my honest opinion, a study buddy, and so much more. Thanks for helping me to be my best self. Thank you for all the crazy adventures and memories along with all of your wisdom and advice. Thank you for always hanging out with me, even if it’s just watching a movie. Thank you for always encouraging me and being one of my biggest supporters.
I hope that everyone is lucky enough to have someone like you in their lives. I’m so grateful for every moment we’ve shared and I cannot wait to make more. You’re the cookie dough to my study session. You’re the Cristina Yang to my Meredith Grey. “You’re my person, you will always be my person.”
I love you to the moon and back.
