Thank You To My Low Maintenance Friend

Thank You To My Low Maintenance Friend

Thank you for making being your friend easy.


At times, friendship can seem like more of a chore than what it's really worth. These types of friendships usually fade out and don't last a very long time. Occasionally, there are a few friends that even though you constantly have to be talking to in order to maintain a friendship, they still work. The best friends, however, are those that you don't have to work hard to keep. I'm talking about my low maintenance friend.

Thank you for being my easiest friendship, and my go-to girl. This friendship is one I can always count on. Whether I'm just calling you to come over and spend the night (when we both know I'll fall asleep after being there for an hour) or if I'm calling you for an impromptu visit, I genuinely appreciate our friendship. Our friendship isn't one where we talk every day or even every week for that matter. I can't help but laugh whenever people say, "Oh you still talk to her?"

We talk when we need each other, and the important thing is that we are always there when that time comes. We have never fought and that is because the friendship is so chill, that it just never seems necessary. The best part about our friendship is that we can so long without seeing each other or talking and when we finally do, it's like nothing has changed and we can still sit there and laugh for hours. Plus, let's be real our catch-up sessions are second to none.

It's not that our friendship is not sincere when we go so long without talking to or seeing one other. Life can get hectic. I think what makes our friendship so sincere is that we don't have to talk constantly or see each other a lot for that bond to still be there. You'll always be that friend that my mom asks if I've talked to in a while because she knows how we both are.

Because of how low maintenance our friendship is when I talk to you about other drama going on in my life you always help me keep it in perspective because you remind me how simple friendship should actually be. You still listen to me talk (complain), which I'm so grateful for. You make my life simpler.

Our friendship has been the one constant friendship throughout my entire life. I've never had to question it. You've always been someone that I could say absolutely anything to without a fear that it would be repeated. As teenage girls, that's a pretty cool friendship to have.

Thank you again for being the person I can always call. I know that nothing will ever change our friendship because of how long we have been friends. I am very lucky to be able to call you my friend.

To My Best Friend Who Taught Me What True Friendship Is, I Can't Thank You Enough

"To the person who will love you endlessly, love her with kindness and understanding."

Dear Best Friend,

You have been a part of my life for quite some time now. You have seen my good, bad, and ugly sides and have stuck by my side through it all. I don't know if I could ever find the words to truly thank you for everything your friendship has given me, but I am definitely going to try.

Our lives have taken some twist and turn these past few years, but we have stayed strong through it all.

Thank you for judging me just the right amount.

Throughout our friendship, I have made some very questionable decisions. A lot of people would say "thanks for never judging me," but I feel like everyone needs a best friend who's going to tell them how it is, to tell them when they are about to make a bad decision or how to avoid something worse from happening. You have always told me how it is (even when I don't always want to hear it), but I know that I can come to you whenever I need someone to set me straight.

You're always down to do nothing with me.

I think that you are the one person that I can call up to hang out and do absolutely nothing with and have a good time. From the nights sitting in and playing card games to ordering Chinese food and watching an entire Netflix series while I dance around with the cat: I know that we could do anything, and nothing together and it would be fun.

But also, you're always down to get lit with me.

I swear one day we will be two old moms at a bar drinking vodka crans and laughing about the stupid shit our husbands and children do. You're always down to go out and have a good time. Even if everyone else we're with is miserable, we find a way to laugh at ourselves.

You are one of the few constant things in my life.

I've lost a lot of friends in my life, but you have stayed by my side through everything. I can't remember the last time we actually fought about anything, but even when we do we can't stay mad at each other for more than a day. I know we will be in each other's lives until we literally keel over.

I want you yo know that you're the strongest person I know.

You've dealt with things that not many people go through ever in their life. You have always been so mature, and you handle everything with grace. You inspire me every day with your goals and successes and I am so proud of you and all of your accomplishments.

Above all else, you deserve the world.

It's so easy to get caught up in your own mind and think that you deserve the things that happen to you, but please know that the only thing you deserve is happiness. Please settle for nothing short of that. It may take a bit to find your happiness, but I will be there every step of the way. You're a remarkable human being, and I want nothing but the best for you.

To the person who will hold your heart someday, please do not break it. To the person who may wrong you, you will regret it forever. To the person who will love you endlessly, love her with kindness and understanding.

You, my best friend, future bridesmaid, godmother of my children, the person to bail me out of jail, the one who lets me cry on their couch for twelve hours,

I love you.

I will cherish our friendship forever. Thank you for being you.

Love always,

Your best friend.

Being The Last Friend To Turn 21 Isn't ALL Bad

All your friends have turned 21, but that is okay


You may think being the last one out of your friend group to turn twenty-one is the worst thing in the world, but in all honesty, it doesn't have to be. One of the biggest perks is that everyone of your friends can go out to the bars with you on your birthday. All the people who turn twenty-one first have to wait for people to be able to go out with them, but you get to celebrate your birthday with all of your friends.

Another huge reason you should feel okay with being last to turn twenty-one is thinking about all the money you are saving. The bars are expensive. When you don't go to the bars you are saving so much money because an average bar drink is about seven dollars. This being said seven dollars multiple times a night, multiple nights a week really adds up, so you are going to have to budget your money better.

You don't have to be the one to buy alcohol for everyone else. Having a ton of people ask you to buy them alcohol must get annoying at a point, and if you're the youngest out of your friends, no one will be asking you to do liquor store runs for them because they can all go already for themselves.

The biggest reason is that you can enjoy being young. You should still continue to enjoy going to house parties and just being able to hang out with friends without having to go to the bars. Spend these months before you turn twenty-one just being able to enjoy life without feeling obligated to go out to the bars all the time. You have a great excuse when you don't want to drink on a weekday to just stay in. This being said it will be your turn to turn twenty-one soon.
