Amazing Qualities In A Best Friend

To My Best Friend, There Are So Many Amazing Things About You That I Love

My best friend is amazing and sometimes we may acknowledge their greatness. I'm saying thank you to my best friend for all of the amazing qualities that make her the best friend ever.


Carson Deborah Montler, since the day we goofed around at cheerleading practice my freshman year, I knew we were going to be great friends. I've seen you grow into an amazing goofball and I couldn't be more blessed to be considered a best friend of yours. I know that we will be friends until the day we die but for now, it's important for me to thank you for being a part of my life.

As you are overcoming darkness, I hope your sunshine rekindles as you realize that you are important to me and everyone else in your life. These are my thanks to you as they are my favorite qualities about you and our friendship. I love you, buddy.

1. Your laughter


Whenever I'm upset or having a bad day, you usually say something stupid or do something silly and I smirk... It doesn't take long until that smirk turns into us laughing so hard that we can't breathe. I'd be lying if I said that most of the time, we spend together doesn't involve us having the best possible time we can have.

There has always been that rumor that the more you laugh, the longer you'll live... If that's the case then Carson, we will be living forever and will continue our goofy girl giggles for the rest of our time.

2. Your kindness

My favorite quality about people has always been their ability to be kind. Carson, you're kind in so many ways. I see your kindness and how it has molded you into a wonderful person.

Whenever one of your friends or your family members are having a tough time or going through something hard, you are always the first person to jump in the car and get to wherever it is that you need to be to ensure that person is okay. I remember when I told you I was going to the ER back a few months ago for the pain in my chest. I told you and before I even got to the ER you had already called me with a worried tone in your voice and told me you were going to drive all the way to Cleveland to make sure I was okay.

I couldn't even count on my hands and toes all the times where you've performed your kindness to me or when I've observed you do these acts of kindness to your other friends and it's a proud feeling. Knowing that I picked to be friends with someone that will act upon kindness in all their actions makes me know that I did good in picking you.

3. Being my person 


Ever since I was a younger girl, I always wanted to know what it was like to be friends with you, even back in our little league cheerleading days. My freshman year of high school I finally got a glimpse on what it was like to hang around you when we cheered together on JV. As soon as my sophomore year hit it was like I was in a whole different world as I was brought into your goofy kind-hearted soul.

When I look back at my life, I wonder what it would be like if we never became best friends and then I laugh because I couldn't imagine my life without you in it. You have become a friend that I consider my family.

There will be times where I had to leave for work and you would still be sleeping at my house and when I'd get home you were sitting out in the kitchen talking to my grandma like she was your own. Whenever I'm coming over to your house to spend the night, I never have to knock I just walk in like I've lived there my whole life, and I think that's one of my favorite things about our friendship, the ability to be considered a part of the family by each other's family members.

4. Your strength

You are the strongest person I know. The stories I've heard about your hardships when dealing with family, friends, and relationships and how you've overcame these obstacles is inspiring to hear about. You may be 4'11 and weigh practically nothing but you have more strength than anyone I've ever met.

You have been through some of the worst things that I couldn't ever imagine going through and yet you still walk tall with your chin up radiating a smile that screams power. Sometimes I envy you because I don't know how it's possible for someone to go through so much but still be the happiest person on the planet.

You are strong, and your strength is impeccable as it's made me understand that even on a cloudy day you can still find the sunshine.

Thank you for being my best friend. I hope this makes you realize how amazing of a person you are and how much you mean to me.

To The Soon-To-Be College Freshman Who Think They'll Keep Their High School Friends, Know This

You will maybe talk to 10 people back from your high school while your in college.


I know what you are thinking "Of course I am going to still talk to all my high school friends once we graduate." "You just didn't keep up with your friends." "I am going to talk to them every day."

Of course, you may be the lucky ones that go on to the same college and university, but if you follow your best friend to college then have you ever thought to yourself. "Did I choose my school based on if my friend(s) would go to college together." Obviously, it could be coincidental that you end up in the same place, but my argument is more on the idea of having friends that go to the same college on your list of important things once you move away.

Now if you are still reading and still in denial with what I am saying then continue.

Since moving away from home I have broadened my horizons and met more people then I could ever have imagined. I have met people that if I have not kept an open mind to them I would not be friends with them now. You will most likely choose the same type of friends that you had in high school if you do not keep an open mind when finding friends in college.

You also do not want to be that person who refuses to make other friends besides their high school friends. I hate to break it to you, but your high school friends will find other friends beside you when they leave for college/university. This time in your life is supposed to be "a new chapter" if you do not branch out of your comfort zone then you will be stuck in a little bubble for the rest of your life.

Not only will your friends in your high school class be making friends, but you need to make friends that are in the same stage of life that you are also in. Still talking to high school aged friends will limit you from conversations due to distance, lack of relevance, and just not going through the same stuff as you.

Sounds daunting? I know.

I am not saying that you can not be friends still with your high school friends. From time to time I catch up with mine to see how the school is going for them, and how they are doing, but I am building and forming relationships with my friends at college because you have had to start up from ground zero, and will be forming a foundation until we graduate.

Even when you have broken it is nice to hang out with your high school friends and talk about the good old days. My point to you is to keep an open mind and to not get upset when high school friends have moved on and found their new friends from school just like you.
