1. Thank you for being there through my worst times
I really believe that I wouldn’t have survived all those tough times in my life if I haven’t had you to lean on. You know all the right things to say; you are not afraid to apply tough love when you see I need to snap out of my delusions.
You gave me some of the best pieces of advice and motivation to move forward. You listened. You were there. I wouldn’t be this strong today if it wasn’t for you.
2. Thank you for celebrating my happiness as if it was your own
You were the wind underneath my wings. You believed in me even when I lacked faith in myself. You celebrated my victories as if they were your own. Only a true friend can do that.
My happiness would just grow bigger and bigger because I had you to share it with. Because I had you to be happy for me.
3. Thank you for listening to my romantic dramas over and over again
It doesn’t matter if it was just a boy I liked or someone I used to date. You were there to lay with me on my couch and endlessly analyze their every move.
You knew I needed it even though it wasn’t always fun or interesting. Even though you probably had something better to do. You were there, and I appreciate that.
4. Thank you for creating memories with me
It’s amazing how many things two people can experience together in one year and all the years of friendship. So many laughs, travels, vacations, new places around the city, old places, new countries, and new people.
It really was such a great journey that I don’t want it to end. I hope that we’ll never stop creating memories and that we’ll end up in the same nursing home.
5. Thank you for growing and evolving with me
We are not the same people we were on the day we met. We’ve changed over the years, and we’ve accepted each other for who we are.
We’ve pushed one another from our comfort zones and challenged one another to be better and reach for the moon.
6. Thank you for accepting my apologies
Thank you for understanding I am only human, and I make mistakes. I know there were times when I unintentionally hurt you or made you feel bad. I still regret them.
But you have such a huge heart, and you sometimes know me better than I know myself. You know why I reacted a certain way and what’s underneath it all.
7. Thank you for silencing my insecurities
I forget that I owe myself the same amount of love I keep giving to others. I forget that I deserve better, and my mind gets filled with insecurities.
Thank you for reminding me that I need to love myself more. I sometimes forget that. Luckily, I have you to reassure me and fill me with confidence and hope. I have you to stop me when I want to settle for less.
8. Thank you for being a huge part of my life this year and every year
I want you to know that you are my guardian angel, and I feel so blessed to have you in my life. You enrich my life, and you bring me calm after all the storms. You are a friend for life.
