I know that there are many of these out there, and this is probably cliche, but here it is anyway.
So many people say that they have the absolute best friend but I know that cannot be true, because the very best one is mine. It's not very common to find someone who hates you at first, but develops into the person that means more to you than any other. And you are that person for me.
Thank you for (unfortunately literally) making me laugh so hard that I pee my pants, with your idiotic jokes and completely inappropriate but still extremely funny humor. Since we've been friends, there has not been a single day in which we did not have contact with eachother. There's always something too exciting or hilarious happening that needs to be shared with the other. Thank you making me laugh so hard that I cry, and also making me laugh when I want to cry.
Thank you for letting our friendship be known. There is nothing I value more than my relationship with you, and it seems that everyone knows that.
Thank you for sticking by my side, even if we don't see eachother as much as we did before, and for never forgetting about me. I appreciate that more than you could ever know.
Thank you for listening to bad news that I was not supposed to share with anyone, but I still shared with you. Thank you for understanding that sometimes things are warped in my head, but that I will soon realize how crazy I sound.
Thank you for letting me feel like part of your family. I practically say "I'm home," when I walk in the front door of your beautiful house and am greeted by your mom with a hug. Thank you for sharing your adorable nieces with me, since I don't have any of my own. And thank you also, for treating my siblings like your own. They love when you're over, even if they don't fully express it all the time, and constantly bring you up in our conversations, because you are a part of our family.
Thank you for giving me memories, which are now funny stories to bore my Grandma with on long car rides because it was a "you had to be there" type of thing.
Thank you for helping me realize when I am being oblivious to the obvious, even when I get upset hearing the truth. Never stop telling me the truth, because I need to hear it.
Thank you for fighting with me like a sister. As much as small arguments suck, they only bring us closer together and make me realize just how much I cherish you. Thank you for making fun of me, even when I am embarrassed for making a fool of myself. Knowing I'll have you on my back about it for a little while, just makes me realize that I gave you something to laugh about.
Thank you for being my person. There is no one on this Earth I connect with more than you, and I will love you as my best friend forever.
An Open Letter to My Best Friend
