A Love Letter To My Best Friend
My Beautiful Bestie
PSA: This will get cheesy, more cheese-filled than the bottom shelf of the mini-fridge.
I wanted to write to you to tell you something, about Us, about You & about Our Friendship.
Sometimes when you’re venting to me about a mistake you made or how you can’t find anything to wear that looks good on you, I’m baffled. I’m baffled because I don’t see those things. You have these insecurities that I know about because we’re best friends!!!! To me, I see this incredible person who amazes me on a daily basis. Someone who is generous and kind and compassionate. I see a mother giving it her all—day in and day out. No matter what. And I just wanted to take a second to acknowledge what a gift you are to me.
Too often, we girls focus solely on the love we project onto our boyfriends or husbands & we don’t take the time to show and express our love to our backbone, our girlfriends, who have been by our side through EVERYTHING, like literally everything.
So this Valentine’s Day, I’m throwing my love to you. Because ridss, you so deserve it. I want to tell you, my best friend, how much I cherish our friendship and our sisterhood.
You are the ultimate love of my life. When the boys that have come and gone left me heartbroken, you were my first call. Even though we are separated by miles, I know you will be there for me always. You always remained a constant unlike those big dummies we call boys; for that, I am beyond grateful. You have been there for me in situations when my family could not be; for that, I am beyond grateful. You have been my rock, and so much more; for that, I am beyond grateful.
Thank you for all the midnight cries and laughs over stupid Instagram posts, and memories we reminisce over and over, time and again. Thank you for all the advice, both solicited and unsolicited. Thank you for telling me what I need to hear, even when it isn’t what I want to hear. Thank you for the ridiculously silly pictures. Thank you for the stupid inside jokes (U kNOw YOU SHOULD!). Thank you for laughing with me. Thank you for the endless memories that will never ever be forgotten.
More than anything, I want you to know that I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you.
You are the family I get to choose, the one I go to when I have nowhere else to turn. You have picked me up off the ground, tidied me up, and kissed my wounds more times than I can count, and I will never be able to thank you enough for that, but I sure am going to try endlessly. You are the one I know I can always run to, whether we saw each other yesterday or haven’t seen each other in a year. Even if it means hopping on a plane to get to you. You have played a huge part in molding who I am as a person, and I am so grateful for having such an amazing person affecting my life in such a positive way.
LOVE YOU RIDA!
With all my love,
