An Open Letter to my Best Friend on your Birthday

Subject: An Open Letter to my Best Friend on your Birthday

Date: 13 Jan 2017

No words in the English language can accurately describe my love for you. You have become one of the biggest influences in my life, and I couldn’t be happier that I get to call you my best friend. You have taught me that it’s okay to love myself and be confident-you are the reason I am who I am today. But on those nights where I just didn’t feel like I was ever enough, you were the one who I ran to, and you never hesitated to take me in and make me realize I was enough for you, which was all that mattered. I’ve never laughed so uncontrollably to the point of hyperventilation with anyone else but you, and I want to keep it that way. I love how you still listen to my problems even when they sound like a broken record, and I love how you come up with different advice each time. You are, quite literally, sunshine on a cloudy day, and your personality lights up any situation you walk into.
I have never met someone as strong willed, confident, loving, and crazy as you. The amount of memories we have is infinite; last minute parties we put together, running around on rooftops barefoot, star gazing in your backyard, and running around the city in the pouring rain. But the ones that matter to me the most are the ones where we can just sit in complete and comfortable silence with each other, or when I come crying to you and all you have to do is hug me, and when we can do the simplest things but still have the most fun doing it if we’re together. I cannot tell you how much you have impacted my life in every way possible. You have made me a better, more confident, spontaneous, carefree individual, and I don’t know if I can ever fully repay you for that. Over the past 5 years, we have grown together, experienced new things together, taught each other, and shared countless amounts of laughs and tears.
I’m lucky enough to call you my sister, even though not by blood, but with you I’ve learned that what makes family isn’t blood, it’s the love that we have for one another, and I have an endless amount for you. I hope we can experience many more memories together and be in each others lives for as long as humanly possible, because a world without you in it, isn’t worth living in. Happy 17th birthday to you, the most beautiful person inside and out, love you forever and ever.
