To my forever friend,

There are no words that I could say in order to explain the impact you have had on my life. I am eternally grateful for the bond we have created. Thank you for always going above and beyond to always be the greatest friend I could ever ask for.

All of my most treasured memories involve you, because you are always there by my side.

When I need to rant, you always listen. When I need a hug, you open your arms, when I need advice, you always tell me what I need to hear but most importantly, when I need a friend you are always there. No one in this world understands me the way you do, just a simple look and you know what I am thinking.

We accept each other for all of our weird habits and embarrassing moments and laugh them off instead of letting them bother us. We have gone through practically every phase of life together, making us both grow as individuals and as best friends. We hardly have to keep each other updated on one another's lives, because we do practically everything together. There is no better feeling than never having to explain yourself to someone, because they totally understand you.

It is very rare to find someone who is happy for your happiness, and sad for your sadness, but when you do that person breaks all barriers of friendships and becomes family. You truly are more of a sister to me than a best friend. No matter what we bicker about or what disagreements we have, nothing can make us stop loving each other. You truly are a part of my family, and I know I am yours too. My mother loves you as her own and will forever hold a special place in her heart for you and the friendship we share. It is totally normal for me to come home, and you're already at my house, hanging with my family while waiting for me to come home. You know how to joke around with my siblings and they are comfortable enough with you to throw jokes right back at you.

We tend to laugh every second we are together and have more inside jokes than I could ever think of.

We constantly text each other "OMG REMEMBER WHEN…" and they always make us relive some of the funniest days we've shared. Even the simplest things, like running errands, we make an adventure. There is nothing in this world that I would ever trade for our friendship. You're stuck with me for the long run, girlfriend!

Thank you for being my partner in crime, my person, my best friend and the closest thing I have ever had to a sister.

“It’s so amazing when someone comes to your life and you expect nothing out of it but suddenly there right in front of you is everything you ever need.”

-Unknown

Dear Unexpected Best Friend,

You were the person I never thought I would speak to and now you are my very best friend. You came out of nowhere and changed my life for the better. I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done to shape me into the person I am today. You’ve taught me what it means to be selfless, caring, patient, and more importantly adventurous.

You don’t realize how much better my life has become and all because you came out of nowhere. I didn’t see you coming. I just saw you on occasion, and now I can’t see my life without you in it. It’s funny how life works itself out like that. Our unexpected friendship filled a hole in my life that I didn’t know existed.

I don’t even remember what life was like before you came along; it most likely had a lot less laughter and spontaneity than it does today. I can call you about anything and you would drop whatever you're doing to help me in any situation. You know when I need encouragement. You know when I am at my best and when I am at my worst. You always know exactly what to say.

I couldn’t have found a better friend than you if I tried. We balance each other out in the best way possible. You are most definitely the ying to my yang, and I don’t care how cliché that sounds. Because of you, I’ve learned to stop caring what people think and to do my own thing regardless of any backlash I might receive. You are my very favorite part of what makes me who I am to this day.

It’s as if I wished up a best friend, and poof—you appeared right in front of me. I am so beyond blessed to have you and I wouldn’t trade the world for all our memories. Thanks for coming out of nowhere.

Love you forever and a day.

News Flash: You Can't Invalidate My Love For Something Because You Don't Understand It

Find what makes your soul shine brighter than the golden sun.

As the passionate, blue-eyed girl expresses her love for her favorite band, a crude classmate turns around and blurts out "nobody cares about your obsession." Her pale skin turns red as her eyes fill up with tears. The confidence she once had about expressing her love for her favorite band has crumbled, all because of one ignorant classmate.

Unfortunately, people judge others and make them feel bad about themselves when they are openly passionate about something they love. People are so quick to judge something when they lack understanding of it.

Instead of opening their minds, they open their mouths and name-call. They throw around the words "obsessed," "not normal" and "weird," without thinking about the potential harm they may cause.

I am far too familiar with the judging and the name-calling.

I am very passionate and enthusiastic about the person I idolize... In the eyes of some, I may be a bit too passionate. However, I don't believe it is anything I should be ashamed of. Granted, it may get annoying seeing the same caption that blurts out "I love him" several times a month, but where is the harm? There is none.

It's OK to get lost in what you love in. Sometimes, it's the only thing that helps you get through the rough patches in your life.

For instance, my favorite movie is what got me through my freshman year of high school — when I had no confidence and no friends. When I first watched the movie, I felt as if sunbeams wrapped around my soul and whispered words of reassurance into my ears. To this day, whenever I watch that movie, I still feel the warmth and comfort.

Watching videos of my idol is sometimes the only thing that can make my anxiety go away. Even such a small act of looking at his picture can make fill my cloudy days with sunshine.

It's completely understandable that some people don't get it and might find it strange, but everyone has something that makes their soul light up.

Respect what people love and don't ever make them feel bad about it. Encourage them instead.

God knows what people think of my love for my idol, but I have learned to not care — even though I am extremely sensitive.

So, get lost in what you love. Let it consume you. Passionately express your love for everything that makes you happy and pay no mind to what others think. Allow yourself to be happy. Take pride in the things you love. There is no harm in doing so.

Find what makes your soul shine brighter than the golden sun.
