Dear You,

Today is your day, but I also have a reason to celebrate. Today is the day my soul sister, my biggest strength, my shoulder to cry on, and my missing piece of the puzzle was brought into this world. Today is your birthday.

Even though I don’t need a special occasion like this to realize that I couldn’t imagine my life without you in it, this is the day that I simply have to tell you how much you mean to me. 

And that is exactly why I am writing this birthday letter to you – to wish you all the best and remind you that I love you, even though I don’t say it as often as I should.

Today is the day I think about all of our memories, all the milestones and obstacles we defeated together, and all the happy and sad moments we have gone through side by side.

I remember our late-night phone calls, all of our drunk parties, all of our serious talks, and all the fun we’ve had through the years. I remember the day I met you and the day my life changed for the better.

They say that everyone enters our lives for a reason. And since I met you, I’ve realized that this is nothing but the truth. Because fate had to have a reason to send you to me when I needed you the most.

From day one, you’ve acted like my big sister and I had no choice but to let you in. You took care of me and you pushed me forward.

Before I knew it, you became my biggest source of inspiration and the only person who believed in me, even in the situations when everyone else was ready to give up.

The person who saw the good in me when I was at rock bottom and the one who had faith that I was destined for great things.

But at the same time, you were the only one who was always honest with me and the only one who made sure I faced the truth, no matter how harsh it was.

The only one who pointed out my mistakes to me and the one who never hesitated to give me positive criticism.

Nevertheless, you never allowed anyone to talk trash me or to diminish me in any way.

And that was when I saw that you thought of me as yours – when I realized how much you loved me. That was when it dawned on me how blessed I’ve always been for having you.

From the very first day, I felt like you were this guardian angel God sent to me. And nothing has changed even now, more than a decade later.

The truth is that you are my soulmate, my partner in crime, and my other half.

You are the only person in this world who gets me, the person whose opinion I value the most, and the one who can always brighten my day, no matter how crappy it is.

You’re the one who loves me at my worst and who gives me the strength I need when I am at my weakest.

The one who helps me get back up on my feet every time life knocks me down and keeps me glued together every time I think I am about to break.

And that’s what real friendship is all about; that’s what shows us who our true friends are.

You know, you can party and laugh with almost everyone. But it takes a special someone to cry with.

It takes a special person to see all of your vulnerabilities and never to use them against you.

To know all of your deepest and darkest secrets and never to judge you for them.

It takes a certain kind of someone to share your misfortunes and honestly sympathize with your sadness.

A special someone to feel your pain, without ever asking for anything in return.

And you are my special someone. Despite all the boyfriends who have been part of our lives, you were, are, and always will be my person.

Because you have been the only one who’s always stood by me through thick and thin, through good and bad days.

The only one who’s been giving me her endless support from the outset and the only one who never abandoned me.

You’re never too busy to listen to my problems and you’ve never told me that my concerns are foolish or irrelevant, even when they are.

You’re always there to wipe my tears away and put a smile back on my face.

I’ve had other friends in life, but you are the only one who stuck around, no matter what. The one who always had my back and who never disappointed me or betrayed me.

Happy friends holding each other

Calling you my best friend would be an understatement because, to me, you are so much more.

You may not have been born as my sister , but that doesn’t mean you are not my family.

Remember the depression, anxiety, breakups, and family problems I went through?

Well, I am certain I wouldn’t have survived any of these things alone.

I always had you holding my hand and telling me that things would find their way of working out. And the truth is that I could never have made it without you.

I can’t help but wonder what I’ve done to deserve an amazing friend like you.

I would never be the person I am today if it wasn’t for you. And that is my biggest blessing and something I’ll be eternally grateful for.

I’ll be eternally grateful for having you, and on this special day , I feel this gratitude the most because this is the day life sent me the best gift ever. The day we celebrate you and your existence.

You deserve the world, but I’ll wish you nothing less than loads of happiness, love, and health.

And most of all – I wish for you to always remain this perfect person you are today.

Here is to another year of joy, laughter, new memories, and pure happiness.

Here is to another year of you being you. Happy birthday, girl. I love you and always will.
