32 Reasons Why I Love My Best Friend

The list stops at 32, but I could go on forever.

My best friend is my soul mate, and I am so lucky that this crazy world brought us together.

1. She has and always will put up with my ridiculousness.

2. She has seen me cry, and I have seen her cry, and we are both ugly criers.

3. We can sit in silence for 20 minutes, and it’s not weird.

4. But most of the time we cannot shut up.

5. This includes three-hour phone and Skype calls about anything and everything.

6. I know what she’s going to say before she says it.

7. Eye contact is all that is needed to communicate sometimes. This definitely comes in handy when we have an opinion that shouldn’t be verbalized.

8. Even when she laughs at me, I still feel loved.

9. We find the dumbest things funny.

10. We have reoccurring jokes that normal people just find odd.

11. She accepts every part of me including my flaws.

12. She talks me through hard situations without fail.

13. She tells me when I’m being unreasonable, and I don’t get mad.

14. She listens to me whine about the same guy and still hasn’t given up on me.

15. But gets more excited than anyone when a guy treats me right.

16. But you have both agreed that life would be easier if we could just marry each other.

17. What’s mine is hers, and what’s hers is mine.

18. This includes, but is not limited to clothes AND food (and that is a big deal for me).

19. She knows exactly how to cheer me up. Most of the time cupcakes do the trick but if they don't, somehow she make me feel better with insides jokes or just plain silence.

20. She has seen me at my worst and still loves me.

21. She will see movies meant for 8-year-olds with me and we will, no doubt, laugh the loudest.

22. She will watch"The Bachelor" with me and will secretly love it. Don’t worry ... No judgment from this side.

23. She will teach me the art of taking a good picture.

24. She gets me out of my comfort zone and makes me do things that I am iffy about at first.

25. But hanging out in our pajamas and talking all-night isn’t abnormal either.

26. Being apart for a long time is no biggie because when we are reunited it’s like nothing had separated us!

27. We plan on traveling the world together.

28. We plan on being roommates in the future.

29. I love her family and she loves mine.

30. We fight like sisters and then we apologize and get over it.

31. We talk about the craziness we will participate in together when we are 80.

32. I can’t imagine my life without her.

To The Person I'm Glad To Have Met

"Some people seem to fade away but then when they are truly gone, it's like they didn't fade away at all." - Bob Dylan


People change people. I'll believe that until the day I die and you changed me in more ways than one. Honestly, you did. At the time, I was also going through so much in my personal life and there should not have been any reason for someone new to enter my life, but the sad reality is that you were my escape from what was going on in my personal life and I needed an excuse to not focus on those issues. That was you.

I was told to move on, find someone else, and encouraged even to text you just so I can find closure and then move on, but I can't do that. Distance makes the heart grow fonder; because the longer I go without seeing you (physically) or hearing from you, the more I start to wonder what you're up to. It's how I grieve, I guess. I think about you all the time and you've been on my mind for the past few weeks. I want to text you to see how you're doing, but I can't, so I'm just writing (as always) to get through this phase I'm going through. Of course, I'm writing to you, but part of me is writing to me. I wrote to you a year ago, but I was in a different headspace then — I'm not the same girl from last year or even six years ago.

I'm different, thanks to you.

I'm thankful for the friendship we shared and the time we spent getting to know each other, but I know that you're not thinking of me — so, it's time for me to stop thinking about you.

You were also my security blanket and I'm thankful for the time that I spent with you, even though you may never hear that. I am very grateful for you and our friendship overall because that was something so unexpected in my life, but I felt that it was needed. You were a breath of fresh air for me and after feeling like I was drowning for months, you came and saved me.

And for that, I am glad to have met you.
