To My Best Friend And The Man I Love

There is a quote from Perks of "Being a Wallflower" that reads, “We accept the love we think we deserve.” Until about six months ago, I proved true to that quote; but I’m not here to tell you a pity story about a sad girl with low self-esteem. I’m here to tell you the story of my best friend, who’s also my boyfriend, the man who changed everything about that quote.

We started out as co-workers, and moved into what my boyfriend now likes to refer to as the “friend zone.” Yes, I did the worst thing you can do to a guy that’s into you: I zoned him. Hard. The good thing is, I picked a guy who wouldn’t take no for an answer. He pursued me with every trick and charm up his sleeve. Finally, I couldn’t ignore the warm fuzzy feelings I got when I was around him. I had to admit that maybe, just maybe, I felt something for him.

A month or so later, we were dating. This man has opened my heart in so many ways and has melted the walls that I’ve kept up for so long. He makes me believe in myself and encourages me to be the best person that I can be.

To My Love:

This is why I love being your best friend.

We love to be goofy.

Whether it's our stupid jokes, the fact that you wear the animal boxers I get you, or our impressions of weird TV shows (Old Gregg) we watch, we're a couple of weirdos. The best part about dating your best friend is that there is so much fun involved—it's not all about the lust.

Belting songs and dancing can get weird.

I know I can be embarrassing, but the cool thing about you is that you aren't afraid to be embarrassing with me. You rap songs and I sing off key, but together we're a match made in heaven. I'm not going to lie, your dancing scares me sometimes, but I can't even imagine how you still date me after seeing mine.

I can be myself around you.

I'm a strange person, I know that. Fortunately, you knew what you were getting into before we started dating. You found out all my flaws and quirks through our friendship and you were very prepared to deal with the hurricane of disaster that is me.

I tell you all my secrets.

Duh, what are best friends for? The only thing that makes telling you secrets even more significant, is that you're my boyfriend and I know I can trust you with my whole being.

You willingly take selfies with me.

Sorry, but this one was too cute not to add. Wherever and whenever I need a picture, you'll already be there (possibly complaining) and making some kind of face.

Your friendship makes our love even stronger.

I love you and I love that you're my best friend. To be honest, I'm not even sure which came first, but I'm glad that you're both for me.

Freshly popped buttered popcorn in your lap and a glass full of crisp Coca-Cola is at your side. All the lights are turned off and you are tucked into a cozy blanket. You have the whole day off and no responsibilities besides refilling your popcorn bucket. Now all you have to do is decide on what movie to watch, but you know one movie will not fulfill your need of relaxing all day. A movie marathon is the only answer to your problem. In case you did not know what movie series to start with, try a few of these.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

The decision-makers of Yale's law students have invested in therapy dog sessions in order to reduce stress. In 2011, Yale Law Library had a sign-out sheet for their certified library dog. The 30-minute sessions were equipped with unconditional, stress-busting puppy love.

Law Librarian Blair Kauffman stated that the free, three-day pilot pet therapy program at Yale Law Library launched as "a positive addition to current services offered by the library."

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
