Love your best friend because you wouldn’t be the person you are without them. So much of you is a result of your friendship. Together, the two of you have been through so much and those things have shaped the person you are today. When your ex stomped all over your heart, they were there to glue the pieces back together. When they had a death in their family, you listened for days, weeks, months however long it takes until they felt that there was nothing left to Say.
Love your best friend even when you hate them. When they break your trust and when they cancel plans at the last minute, love them. When they choose their boy or girlfriend over you, love them just as much. Even when, God forbid, they make you feel horrible, love them because you can’t imagine your life without them.
And more than just loving them, tell them that you do. Tell them every day so that they will always know you treasure them. Fight for them when they need you to, even when they don’t ask.
Most importantly thank your best friend. Thank them for putting up with you when you’re moody and don’t feel like talking. Thank them for always giving you a place to stay if you have nowhere else, and never denying you the couch when you were in need. Thank them for being exactly who they are and teaching you so much about yourself. Thank them for just being there, and for loving you too.
