A soul mate isn’t always the person you’re going to marry and spend the rest of your life with.
Yes, secretly the majority of us are looking for that someone but there’s an equally exciting and important moment in your life when you find the friend who is meant to be your soul mate.
I should probably apologize to you for that fact that I’ve chosen you to be mine, but fate sealed the deal and you are absolutely stuck with me. I know that secretly you know you couldn't live without me either at this point.
There is one person who understands what you’re saying when there are no words coming out of your mouth, the person who doesn’t judge you for the faces you make or things that you like. There’s a person who knows your flaws and your quirks and will still claim you in public…that person is me.
I don’t think thank you is ever going to cover the emotional range of our friendship or how appreciative I am of you.
Thank you for letting me be me and for always being you. You are the first person I want to come to when something fantastic is in my life and you’re also the first person I want to cry to when my life is falling apart.
Though you’ve never let me completely hit rock bottom, you let me cry, be a little ridiculous but then you are always there to help pick me up. Actually, sometimes you’re there to kick my butt and tell me to shape up and even when that pisses me off...because deep down I know you’re right.
From wiping away my tears when someone has broken my heart to offering to plot revenge if need be, you’re always willing to be my alibi even if we weren’t in the same place, in fact, we could be in different states and you’d still claim you were next to me the entire time and somehow it would work I bet.
Thank you for sharing in all my happy moments, for taking all the pictures for us to reminisce on. Thank you for being my number one confidant, for being patient and empathetic but also having a tough backbone when I am too stubborn to admit that I’m wrong.
Thank you for pushing me to follow my dreams and for being my biggest cheerleader. When I’ve wanted to give up you’ve been there to tell me to get my ass up and keep going because you have never once doubted my abilities.
Beauty for you isn’t just exterior; you are one of the most beautiful individuals I know inside and out. You are one of those people that could touch someone’s life just by simply existing.
You make my day a little brighter, you make things a little sweeter and you make me smile a little harder. You are your own category of selfless, genuine and amazing.
You just aren’t a role model of what a friend looks like, you’re a role model of what a strong woman looks like.
Thank you for all the late night drives, singing along to the radio even if we didn’t know the words. To binge watching all the chick flicks with me and shamelessly crying to each one. You’re always up for whatever next adventure that is coming and you rarely say no.
Whether near or far I never have to worry if I have someone in my corner because you’re always there.
I never have to worry about being replaced or forgotten, but let’s face it, it would be really hard to forget me.Thank you for the big things and the small, for knowing my favorite pizza toppings and what flavors of ice cream I can’t live without.
Thank you for bringing me back down to Earth when I get a little too full of myself, for reminding me to laugh when life gets a little rough and for loving me when I can’t love myself. You are my constant in a world that is forever changing.
Thank you for laughing with me or in some cases laughing at me. For being the hand that I can always reach for when life seems unsteady and for always having open arms to pull me in close. I know that I can never find a better friend than the one I have in you. You’ve set the bar pretty high for what true friendship is supposed to look like.
I’m the lucky one really because you are stuck with me, even when I irritate you and drive you crazy. There is absolutely no way I’m letting you go so thank you for putting up with me.
I love you!
