A letter to my best friend.
This is weird, very weird. I guess it’s probably because of the formality because we never address each other like this but here is an open letter to you, my dearest friend. Today I am going to write few of the things that I feel about us, few things that I’ve learned about us and few things that we’ve become. I won’t promise it’s going to be short but.
We go so back now that I think of it. I think it’s been 16 years since we’ve been friends. It’s become so long we’ve become like a family, we’ve become inseparable. Whenever I achieve something good or make a progress you’re the first person I have to talk to, not because I want you to feel happy about it and congratulate me but because I want you to be a part of it. Whenever I am upset or have a bad day you’re the first person I have to talk to because somehow you find the words that seem to console me and make me feel a tad bit better. It’s the same with you as well. I love how excited you get over little things and complain about life in general. You are literally the most honest and pure hearted person I know of and I love that about you.
Crazy how different we two are yet we have this connection that just works itself. You are shy, less talkative and somewhat of an introvert where as I am the complete opposite. You’d think being so different, we wouldn’t find reasons to form a solid bond but we do, we’ve been doing it for so long it’s insane. It’s insane knowing that you’ve been part of my whole life. It’s insane thinking about the fact that more than half of my great stories in life has happened because of you. We’re in that place where we don’t even communicate in order to know how we feel. On a single brow raise and we understand things.
Also you turned 20 recently! What a year! I’ve seen you grow so much over the past few years, especially after you went abroad. As much I miss you and hate the fact that you went far I’m just very proud of how you’re handling everything, how you make it through every day. You are learning, growing and being the best version of yourself, I am so grateful for all that. I feel happy knowing you are doing well and taking good care of yourself. I truly hope this year holds great things for you.
This term ‘best friend’ has somewhat been termed as so cliché and girly that people just don’t care to make it a thing anymore. But I want you to know you have always been and you’ll always be my best friend. The friends I’ve made over the past years haven’t always been nice. People try to make use, they try to gain the most out of the friendship. And those are the ones that destroy lives. No matter what happens knowing that I can always count on you gives me the best feeling. I know I could always knock at your door even if it’s midnight or the early morning because you are going to answer and ask me how long have I been standing outside. I know you’re always going to listen about my interests and tell me I should go for it. That’s just how we’ve always been and I value this so much.
Life is amazing because of you. I hope you know how much you matter because I would not be the person I am today if it wasn’t for you.
So thank you.
Thank you for being not just a best friend but everything.
