Dear Best Friend,

There are many things that I am thankful for, but one thing I am most thankful for is you and our friendship.

In this past month, we have spent nearly every day together. All of the memories that we have made has made me extremely happy.

Thank you for always being here, literally. When bad things and also good things have happened to me, you are the first person that I normally call. Lately, a ton of bad things have happened to the both of us, that has only made us stronger people. Between bad luck and break ups, I would say we have had our fair share of them all, so it is all about positivity from here on out.

I am so proud of you. Proud is an understatement when it comes to you, I am so lucky that you have reached for your goals. You have went far and beyond and now all of the hard work pays off. I cannot wait for the memories that we are going to be sharing for the rest of our lives when we are the little old ladies shopping in the mall or hurting each other with our canes, bumping into each other with our wheelchairs, or giving future Certified Nursing Assistants the time of their life.

Thank you for always encouraging me. You were with me when I found out that I got my job and now you are with me when I have interviews for others and so forth. Lately, God has made me stronger with all of the bad things happening, but you never seem to fail on putting a smile on my face.

I am thankful for the constant sleepovers, shopping trips, baseball games, road trips, bonfires, and hanging out with all of our friends. I am thankful that have someone to talk about girl things with and that I can always turn to for boy advice, even if I never take it. I am thankful for our mini jam sessions in the car and at stoplights while in one minute we could be jamming to country music, having a duet to High School Musical music, or busting out a rap to one of Drake's new songs.

Thank you for understanding me as a person and always being careful of what you do around others, that is what makes you my best friend. Even if you want to strangle a really mean person, you always stay calm and just fight it off until we are able to make the best of out the situation.

I am so beyond excited for the memories that we are about to make in the upcoming year and I would not be wanting to make them with anyone else. So, here is to more line dancing, shopping, and random trips with you. I pray you stick around for a really long time, so we can make more memories together.

Love,

Your Very Best Friend

To The Friends I Won't Talk To After High School

I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

Hey,

So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.

Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.

We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.

With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.

And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?

Sincerely,

Me

How To Cope With A Best Friend Breakup


Breaking up with a boyfriend is one thing, but breaking up with your best friend is a whole new level of heartbreak.

We all know breakups can be tough, but when that breakup happens to be between you and your best friend, things reach a new level of heartbreak. I met my best friend junior year of high school after our Spanish teacher randomly assigned us to be partners; we struggled so much in that class but in the end, we truly became inseparable. When senior year rolled around we were still close as ever; people would often joke that we were sisters because we looked and acted so much alike. We would go on little dates together, go to parties together, and were always the first person we called when something "major happened."

When my best friend's boyfriend of four years cheated on her while we were spring breaking in Europe, it became my duty to make her feel better; I would randomly drop off flowers and little notes to her house, spend countless hours just listening to her cry and vent, and even stopped talking to people associated with her boyfriend so as to show my "support." All of these things were no big deal to me considering I loved this girl like a sister; whatever she needed I was there to give that to her.

Things soon took a sharp turn when we entered not only the same college but the same sorority. While I was struggling with the social aspect of FSU, my best friend soon found new best friends. When I started having major issues with my boyfriend, I would automatically text/call my best friend as she did with me, but instead of support, I got the sense that she was passive and uninterested. Our little dates and goofy inside jokes disappeared and reappeared between her and her new friends, and my comfortableness around her soon turned into insecurity.

Coming to terms with the fact that the girl I knew everything about is now basically a stranger was a hard one to overcome; I didn't want to accept the fact that my best friend decided it was time to find new ones. It's heartbreaking knowing that the special things you shared with a person are now being shared with others, and it's hard to accept the fact that you aren't wanted or needed by the one person you thought would be by your side forever.

Since school has ended I think I have accepted the fact that we're no longer what we used to be. Of course, it still stings when I see social media posts with her new, college friends, but I just have to remind myself that this is part of life and I just have to move on. I will forever cherish the memories I made with her, but it's time to acknowledge that they were made with someone in my past, not with someone in my present.
