What A Friend Says Vs. What A Best Friend Says

New Girl

Friend: “Want me to punch them?”

Best friend: “I will literally shit in a bag, set it on fire, and throw it at them. I’m just waiting for you to give me the okay.”

Friend: “I’m sorry that you’re sad, do you want me to come over?”

Best friend: “Hey! Unlock your back door, I can’t fit through the window with all this comfort food I brought. I already tried.”

Friend: “Seriously. Please don’t kill anybody. I can’t afford to bail you outta jail right now.”

Best friend: “Okay but you gotta be smart about this. Can you at least wait a few weeks and give the ground some time to thaw? It’ll be easier for me to help you dig the grave for the body by then.”

Friend: “Don’t you think your celebrity obsession is getting a little out of hand?”

Best Friend: :::Spends a half hour stalking your celebrity crush and their family on the internet::: “His wife ain’t shit. We could take her. And his son is totally wearing a Counting Crows T-shirt in this picture. You two have so much in common, you’d be an awesome step mom.”

Friend: “Oh wow, I can’t believe we already watched three episodes today! I’m so glad Netflix doesn’t judge us.”

Best Friend: “I can not believe we only made it through one season. I am severely disappointed.”

Friend: “You are strong. You’re gonna be okay.”

Best friend: “It’s okay that you are not okay right now. You don’t always gotta be strong. I will sit here and be not okay with you for as long as it takes. We can build a blanket fort while we wait.”

Friend: “I’m sorry you’re going through a rough time right now. Please don’t hesitate to call if you need anything.”

Best Friend: :::Takes your hand::: “Don’t even worry about it. We’re in this together. Always.” TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather

Let go now
