Best Friend, It's Not A Goodbye, It's A See You Later

When leaving, good friends never say goodbye, they simply say “see you soon”, while best friends say "see you later."

I knew this day would come, but I didn’t know it would come this soon. This day has always been in the back of my mind hoping that it would never come, but now that the day has come, I have no choice but to be ready. So here it goes, a letter to you, thanking you for never leaving my side and supporting me always.

Dear Best Friend,

Where do I start off, there’s so much to say and such little time to do so, so I’ll keep it short and sweet. You walked into my life almost two years ago. Two years of endless laughter, constant learning and not one moment of dullness. We’ve made so many memories together, ones that I’ll never forget and always look back at as some of the best times in my life. You made sure to never leave my side and always have my back through anything.

I cherish the countless nights you spent cheering me up when something went wrong. You taught me so many new things, so many life lessons and always had new songs for me to listen to and new shows to binge watch. We’ve gone through some hard times both together and personally, but one thing that didn’t change between us during those difficult times is that we always knew that we had each other’s back no matter what. To this day and so on, that will never change and I’ll always be there for you whether your 5 minutes away or 8 hours away.

Thank you for being there at my highest high and my lowest low and for guiding me through difficult times in my life. You understood me when others didn’t and you related to me in my personal struggles. You never judged me for my actions but instead you helped me make my actions better and helped me become a better person from it. It’s crazy how two people can live such different lifestyles yet relate to each other so much.

Seeing you in your final days in this dusty old town I can’t help but get a little sad to watch you leave. But at the same time watching you prepare for your big move makes me so happy knowing that your dreams are finally starting to come true. You are finally on your way to chase after all that you’ve been dreaming of your whole life. This is not a time for me to be selfish but a time to be grateful and joyful for the friend that I have been blessed with these past two years.

It’s going to be hard not seeing you every day but now that gives me an excuse to come visit you. I am so excited to see you enter into the real world, and I can’t wait to join you in just a few years. Always remember that I am a phone call away or FaceTime. Never forget to be the best version of yourself and to be proud of the remarkable woman you have grown up to be. Do what make you happy and don’t let others opinions change who you are. Thank you for always having my back, dealing with my annoying self and for being best friend. I love you so much, It’s not a “goodbye”, it’s a “see you later, best friend”.

Sincerely,

Your best friend, shmoop

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

Every single one of us has a story.
