Everyone has that one person in their life that they feel fortunate to know and lucky to have in their life. This person has supported you through the ups and downs, made you laugh, and never left your side. Here are some things you have probably forgotten to thank them for.
1. Spotting the fake friend
Whether it's your mom, grandma, aunt, best friend, sister, brother, boyfriend, or girlfriend they were able to see something in that person you didn't. They noticed that fake friends jealousy or pointed out to you how that person was taking advantage of you. At the time you may not have been too happy with them, but looking back you're glad they said something and waved the red flag about that person.
2. Being brutally honest
That dress you LOVED and thought you looked good in, but in reality you looked like a feather duster? Yeah, it wasn't easy for them to tell you that you didn't look as great as you thought you did, but it had to be said. Looking back on it the dress you found and wore looked MUCH better on you. Their constant, brutal honesty helped you make better decisions.
3. Defending you
At one point there has been a rumor or something mean said in a conversation about us. This person stood up and defended you, even if it meant putting them in a weird situation or in the middle of others.
4. Staying by your side
Life isn't always rainbows and butterflies. Sometimes it gets hard and it's nice to have that person who has seen you on both your brightest days and darkest ones. Having a person who can go through the ups and downs of life with you make those twists and turns so much easier to navigate.
5. Making you laugh so hard your sides hurt
No matter what you can count on this person to make you laugh. Even if it's over the smallest thing this person can make you crack up. You have too many inside jokes to be considered normal. You know you can call this person when you're feeling down and they'll know just how to cheer you up.
This is just a short list of all the things you should thank the important people in your life for. If this person is your best friend, boyfriend, girlfriend, boyfriend, cousin, aunt, uncle, mom, dad, grandparent, brother, or sister make sure you take a few moments to thank them for whatever they do for you. It doesn't have to be a big grand gesture, but a simple thank you will go a long way. They'll feel appreciated and you'll feel good for acknowledging what they do for you.
