Knowing what to say in order to brighten up your best friend’s life is what a true BFF is for. Who doesn’t need a little pick-me-up from time to time?
This girl is your anchor. She is the one you go to for everything and never gets tired of listening to your problems. She loves you like a sister and scolds you like a mother. She always has your best interests at heart and all she wants is for you to be happy.
Sometimes, we take for granted these amazing people in our life. We get so used to the idea of having someone to vent to 24/7 that we forget to tell them how much they are appreciated.
They don’t need to be there for us but they always are. They don’t need to be available to us at all hours of the night but they always are. And why? Because they love us unconditionally. That’s what a best friend is for.
And if you love your bestie and can’t imagine your life without her, make sure she knows how you feel. She probably already does but it never hurts to say it and it is always nice to feel appreciated.
If you want your best friend to know how much you cherish her and her friendship, here are 8 beautiful things you should tell her so she always feels appreciated and loved.
1. You are my person and you will always be my person.
We are like one. When you cry, I cry. When you’re happy, I’m happier! There is nobody who knows me like you do. And there is nobody I wish would know me the way you know me.
We are so close, that I can honestly say we’re family. You’re blood to me. The things we have been through and the way we always found a way out of every curveball life threw at us makes us bonded for life.
I can’t imagine having gone through the things I have gone through with anyone else by my side but you! You are the only person I want to always have near me, in all of life’s ups and downs.
And I know you feel the same way about me. That’s what makes us such a great team. I am so happy that we both know what it’s like to have a sister, because of each other.
You are precious to me and I will always value your friendship above anything else. After all—you are my person.
2. Stay strong, better things are coming, I promise.
Life is no picnic, I know. There are things I wish you didn’t have to go through but I guess life had other plans. And guess what? It only made you stronger! I didn’t think that was possible but now I see it is.
Don’t ever think you’re not doing okay. You are better than okay! And don’t you ever feel like you’re not good enough. You’re perfect! It makes me sad how you don’t see your worth sometimes. You are so strong and so brave. You are the person I go to when I need to feel a smile on my face, don’t ever forget that!
Just because life threw you for a loop doesn’t mean it’s going to keep tossing you around, because it won’t. The hard part is over. You have survived and I am so proud of your heart and bravery. Not a lot of people could stay as strong as you, given what you’ve gone through.
So keep your head up, sister! I’ll always be there to hold your hand and together we can conquer anything. You will never have to go through anything alone for as long as I live. I love you!
3. You are so beautiful, inside and out.
Don’t let stupid, irrelevant people tell you otherwise! You are the most beautiful person I have ever met and I don’t only mean the exterior. Your heart is made of gold!
There is nothing you wouldn’t do for those you love. There is no river you wouldn’t swim and no mountain you wouldn’t climb. Your love knows no bounds and that is the most precious thing about you.
Never allow anyone to make you feel lesser than you are. You are too good for this world and those who know you will never take you for granted. If only there were more people like you in this world, it would be a much more beautiful place.
4. Make good choices.
You are too great a person to let yourself get knocked down by all the negativity in this world. Don’t succumb under pressure. Make sure you make good, smart choices that your mom would be proud of.
Never give in to peer pressure. You are better than that and you are perfectly capable of making smart decisions without anyone’s help. I’ll always be there when you need a helping hand but you know you’ve got this.
If you ever find yourself making bad choices, please make sure that I’m there with you, so that we can laugh about it like crazy and tell our grandkids one day! They won’t believe how nuts their grandmas once were.
Always be yourself. Know that you are enough. Appreciate yourself enough to walk away from people and situations that make you feel anything less. Good people will love you for you and not for what they need you to be.
5. Be proud of what you’ve been through.
There is nobody more courageous than you. And every time life knocked you down, you punched it right back and proved what a badass boss lady you are.
Be proud of the things that brought you to where you are. Without those hardships, you wouldn’t know the things you know now and you wouldn’t be the strong, ambitious, careful and confident woman you are today.
Whatever awaits you, you’ll embrace it and deal with it with grace and poise. And I’ll be by your side to celebrate your victories. And there are many more on the horizon. Just stay brave and proud. Things have a way of working themselves out.
6. Laugh it all out.
We are far too close to let an argument bring us down. I know that there are so many things waiting for us in the future and there is nothing that can possibly jeopardize our friendship.
If we ever get into a fight, let’s always remember that it’s you and I against the problem and not you and I against each other. We are a team. If you ever walk away from me after a fight, you always know where to find me. My door will always be open to you.
We are far too good friends to let silly arguments ruin what we have. I think we both know that. I’m sure we’ll laugh about whatever silly fight we go through in a week or two. Let’s never take ourselves too seriously and always laugh at the end of every day. That’s what we do best.
7. I love you.
I have learned that it is always important to tell those you love how you feel about them. You may never get another chance. So let me tell you something… I love you more than I thought one could love a friend. Only you’re so much more than that.
You are my missing puzzle piece. My soulmate and my partner in mischief! The other part of me that I could never live without.
In all honesty, I think you are such an incredible person and I am so blessed to live life alongside you. You have taught me so much about life, love and friendship, and being around you makes my heart happy!
I love you and I always will!
8. Thank you.
Thank you for being my soul sister. Thank you for putting up with me even when I’m at my worst. Thank you for always finding time for me and never having to check your calendar. I am so thankful that you just drop everything and come to my aid whenever I need you.
Thank you for being the best role model for me. I know this sounds funny, as we’re the same age, but I have always looked up to you as a big sister. And I love it so much. I always had something to learn from you but you were never condescending toward me. You always have the best approach to everything.
Thank you for making me see what I need to work on, without hurting my feelings. Thank you for never letting me settle and for making sure I am always my best self.
I don’t know how I’d survive in this world without you, so thank you for being you. You are my person and my sister and I love you more than words can say.
