Before you read any further, I just want to let you know that you’re my favorite person. Though I probably don’t say it enough, I appreciate you and everything you do for me even from hundreds of miles away. With that being said, I’d like to say thank you for listening to me countless times. You help me overcome obstacles every day by knowing exactly what to say to help me get by whether it has to do with school, work, friends, relationships, health, body image, and so much more.
Thank you for never staying mad at me for too long, even when we both know I totally deserve to be mad at. Thank you for understanding me when others couldn’t. Thank you for always making me smile and laugh, even if it’s just by a single text message or a link to a silly YouTube video. Thank you for staying up late with me just to talk about life and the future and our feelings that we oftentimes aren’t strong enough to admit to. Thank you for constantly believing in me when I couldn’t believe in myself. I know we don’t see each other often, maybe once every few months, but I just want to let you know the time I spend with you is the time I value most in my life.
You have done so much more for me than you know, whether it’s making me feel comfortable in your own home, feeling accepted by your family, or buying me coffee or lunch when I was completely capable of paying for myself. I hate not being able to see you every day or hug you when I want to. I hate not being able to come to your house and watch movies with you or go out for lunch with you or go shopping- you know- just those basic activities that best friends are typically required to do. The distance stinks, but it works. I can’t imagine my life without you, and I honestly never want to. I could write the longest letter in the world about how much our friendship means to me, but I decided to keep it as short as I could. I just needed to let you know that I love you so much and I can’t wait to see you again.
