“Because things don’t always go the way you would like them to.”
I often thought to write something that may thank all my friends, present and past. So that they realize that they are and were the most beautiful part of my soul. It’s only because of their presence that I could learn the explicit definition of “friendship”. Some bonds were that perfect and elegant that it gave me a reason to nurture.
We were inseparable. No one would’ve expected it to go this way, but that’s okay. You helped me through awkward, tough, and uncomfortable times. You were my strength when weakness overtook my vigor. You were my rock, when I needed stability and my laugh when I was crying. Thank you for being you. You were genuine, kind, and selfless.
But, I’m sorry. I’m sorry we grew apart. We used to mesh so well, but we lost our synchronization so randomly. One day we were laughing at our constant inside jokes and the next we weren’t prioritizing our friendship. But, I don’t have any hostile feelings.
You were the best part of my past. I will look back on our friendship and hope my kids have a friend like I had in you. I will always want my other friends to have a friend like you. I’ll always recite the tale of our friendship to the best I can and motivate all to have a friend like you. My stories would start by your name and end with yours, such was the dominance of your existence.
Our memories used to sting, but now I enjoy going through the countless pictures. You are such a sweetheart and I wish you the best. We both have gone down separate paths, but we’re positively thriving. Keep doing your thing! I would always
I can’t even refer to you as an ex-best friend because that’s far from the truth. We are simply best friends who drifted. I’ll consider you a friend forever though. So no matter the time that passes, if you ever need anything (unless it’s very expensive:-P) just know I’ll always be here.
I might not be able to analyze your emotions just by reading your texts, judge your mood just by hearing your voice. I may not understand your facial expressions anymore and I may not be the person you tell everything to anymore, but that’s okay. I had my time in that position and now someone else will be blessed with your radiance. It was always a privilege to share that special position in your life.
You had such a positive impact on me when I needed it most. I’m so thankful you were part of that chapter of my life. Without you, I wouldn’t have made it through some of the most horrendous school days.
Thank you for the memories. Thank you for tolerating my ridiculous. Thank you for the endless talks on almost everything we could have discussed. Thank you for providing me with a second family. Thank you for your support. Thank you always for being my best friend.
Your Friend Forever.
