They are going to call you up on the phone just to ask how you’re doing.
The people who see you texted them an answer immediately.
They are the ones who clear whatever schedule they have if you need them.
Always making you their priority.
The ones who don’t mind paying sometimes because they know you have the next one. And neither of you are keeping score. The ones who are meeting you halfway with everything.
They are your loudest laugh.
Your funniest moments.
Sometimes your best and most embarrassing story.
The rock you need when things are shaky in your life.
They are the support when you’re doubtful.
The encouraging words when you’re being hard on yourself.
They are the ones whose families will feel like your own.
When I love you gets said so carelessly and easily.
And you don’t wonder if they feel the same way.
They are the one standing beside on every birthday.
And when you think of what to wish for,
you look around and just say thank you.
They are the ears that will never get tired of hearing the little things. Like how your day is or what you had for lunch?
They share your excitement and your accomplishments. Making the choice to be there because they want to be.
They are the ones who always lift you up and make you better.
Without trying to change you.
They are the support when you need it.
The company when you want to be alone.
The person you can talk to when it’s late at night.
They are the ones who truly have your best interest at heart.
Even though you see your flaws they see everything good about you.
Even though you judge yourself for mistakes they forgive you.
They are the fights that get met with compromise.
Because they care even when they are angry or upset.
It’s never about something ending.
Or overcome with fear.
Because you are confident in them.
It’s the little moments that make you realize how lucky you are. And you look over at them and realize they are one of the best things in your life and you really don’t know someone better.
Every conversation where it seems like they understand you better than anyone. Because they do. So much of who you are is influenced by them.
It’s the relationship that’s just so simple and easy.
The ones that teach you that’s how the right relationships were supposed to be this whole time.
And when you find that relationship, you are going to look at your friends and realize they were the ones who set this standard of what you should expect in a person. Never allowing you to settle.
