It started outside the EPT room on the very first day of college. I saw an extremely beautiful, talented yet the most clumsy girl. After that, we met, we talked, we shared classes, meals and what not. At that time who knew we were making the most beautiful memories of our youth together and nurturing a bond that I hope shall last forever.
Thank you for entering my life. I strongly believe in having “a person”, and there is no better person to fit that description than you. For the last two years of my life, I have been through so many different stages, like falling out with friends, entering college, and through all of the good and bad times, you have been with me. I couldn’t thank you enough for that. To me, it is so important for your friends to be proud of you when you do something new, learn something new, or just accomplish big things. But it is also really important for your friends to just be proud that you got out of bed that day, so here I am, so proud of you, for waking up and just having a day!
I want you to know, I don’t need a large group of friends when I have one that constantly reminds me all of the times that they have been there for me in every way possible. I thought my whole life that I knew what a best friend was, but I was wrong. You’ve given those words a whole different meaning. Nobody could ever compare to you. I used to think having a best friend equaled to sleep overs, reckless activities, and spending every day together.
I was so wrong.
A best friend is someone whom you don’t see all the time yet they are so close to you that it blows your mind. It is getting so excited to see the other one although it might have only been a day that you’ve been apart. It is being able to call them at any time of day because you need them. It is feeling like you always have someone in your corner. Or just you, you are a best friend. Having you by my side has made every individual day better. And I hope to never lose that.
If for any reason, we ever fight about something, and I mean really fight about something, I will always want to fix it. I hope you stay around for a long time, because I want you to be in my life forever. You have made my life so much better since you came along and the memories that we have made together are one in a million. With that being said, I hope you know how much I appreciate you, how much I appreciate everything that you do for me. And I hope that you know I would do anything for you, without even hesitating, because you’re my best friend.
Friends come and go, and relationships with people change over the years and that is okay. If there is ever a time that it seems like we’re fading or something is changing, know that I hold the relationship that we once had close to my heart and I will always look back on the memories. While life takes us through our own path, I hope you know that regardless of where we end up, I will always be there for you. Maybe not physically, but emotionally, I will always be there for you.
Thank you for sticking by me, getting to know me and my life and for giving me the most sincere support and unconditional love. I couldn’t thank you enough for the countless amount of times that you have stuck by me when I needed you. I have no idea what I’d do without you sometimes… or all of the time. And I am so happy that I don’t ever have to find out.
