To My Best Friend, Thank You For Loving Me

Joe Pizzio

To my best friend in the world, I want you to know how blessed I am to be your friend.

There are not many things in my life that I’m proud of. I don’t have the most envious life or the most loving family. I don’t have the most doting boyfriend or a long list of accomplishments that I’ve done. In fact, my life is far from being perfect. It is not for the faint of heart. It changes in the blink of an eye. It leaves me shocked in the aftermath.

But you, you are the calm to the stormy days. You bring stability to my chaos. You light up my life during my most trying times and you pushed me to take one more step when I was on the verge of giving up.

You are my unwavering certainty in this wildly unpredictable world.

I may not know what will happen to me in a few years, or even in a couple of months, but I know you will always be around. I may not have many friends who I am close with but I know you are the only one I truly need.

I may not have a life I’m proud of yet, but you make me so proud to be your friend.

To my best friend in the world, I am who I am today because of you.

You see the best in me even at my worst. You believe in me when I feel hopeless. You build me up when I hit rock bottom.

Thank you for being my source of comfort when loneliness creeps up to me after my breakup. You talk to me until my tears dry and I start laughing at your silly jokes. You stay on the phone with me for hours and you accompany me to all the places I wanted to go just so to cheer me up. You make me realize I deserve so much more than a boy who made me cry.

Thank you for being my pillar of support when I am at my weakest. You cared for me when I was sick. You helped me in my job search when I lost mine. You made me smile when all I wanted to do was cry.

In the face of failure and adversity, you reassure me that I am so much stronger than that. You willingly render me with all your help and you promise to overcome my struggles with me together.

To my best friend in the world, I am grateful that you believe in our friendship and want us to be friends forever.

With you, our friendship has withstood the test of time and distance. It has weathered many hardships and overcomes all odds.

Even through both of us are no longer the same people as we were when we first met; our friendship has remained the same. With you, everything is easy. We complete each other sentences. We bond over the things that we love. We argue and fight over insignificant and important things. We makeup and we can never stay angry at each other for long.

We are each other’s constants in this ever-changing life. We are sidekicks and partners in crime, forever having each other’s back. We are the family we never have.

To my best friend in the world, thank you for coming into my life and changing it in the best way possible.

For making so many unforgettable memories together and celebrating with me at every important milestone. For traveling with me on this crazy journey called life. For encouraging me to leave my fears behind and chase after my dreams. For healing my broken heart and showing me that happiness is possible as long as I want it. For loving me unconditionally no matter what happened.

For being you- my best friend. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
