Things I Need to Tell My Best Friend More Often

Things I Need to Tell My Best Friend More Often

Sometimes "You're the best" isn't enough.


I want everyone to take a moment and truly think about their best friend. You can probably ramble off a list of their favorite colors, candies, and movies, but think a little deeper. I want you to think about their interests, think about their challenges they have endured, think about what really makes them, well, them. Now think of them as if they have never existed. It might be utterly impossible for you to do so, since they are a major part of your world, but just try. Imagine what it would be like to not have one of the most cherished pieces of you. It is absolutely terrifying to think about isn't it?

We don't usually think about what it would be like to suddenly lose some of our most trusted and adored loved ones, because, well, we simply don't have to. They make up some of the happiest parts of our souls, and that's how they will remain. Though we may be so lucky to have these special people a part of our lives, it doesn't ever hurt to remind them just how much they mean to us. As I sit here and personally think about my best friends and all they have done for me like sitting with me for endless hours as I cry over a boy, for always being honest, and for always having my back, I think to myself, "How did I ever get so lucky?" The least I could do is remind you how much you mean to me and how amazing you truly are.

You are my favorite person to eat junk food with.

I truly think thats where we bond the most, over food. Cookies, cupcakes, donuts, chips, pizza, the party never stops. The amount of times we have looked like the little boy in Matilda who eats the entire chocolate cake is uncountable.The best part is that it is always a judge-free zone.

I will always gush over your accomplishments.

I will introduce you to someone new and instantly list off your resume. I've seen you work your ass off and I've seen your determination. You can absolutely accomplish anything, so naturally, I have earned the right to brag about you.

I will always have an eye on the person you are dating.

Wether it is your first date or your husband, they better be ready to deal with me. They are now the luckiest person in the world, to have you in their lives. If they bring you an ounce of pain, doubt, or suffering, I will bring it to them ten-fold. You deserve the world and every ounce of happiness in it, and we will not settle for anything less.

I admire you.

You have endured heart breaking moments in your life and have only come out stronger. You give me the strength to keep moving forward on a dark day. Without you and your strength I would have succumbed to my weakest moments.

I will support you no matter what.

I don't care what you do for a living, if you're happy, I'm happy. If you want to quit your job and travel the world, I want to know all of your stories. If you are ready to have babies, I will be ready to spoil them until the end of time. If you want to get drunk and be a fool, I will be there ready with a camera.

You have no idea how beautiful you are.

Both inside and out. You may constantly reassure me that I look okay, but you are the true beauty. You have a soul that knocks me off of my feet and sometimes so kind-hearted even I get a little jealous.

I will always be here for you.

If you ever feel lonely, or as if no one in the world cares, think of me. There is not a single thing I would not do for you. You give me confidence, reassurance, and courage, and I will do the same.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.
