First off, I want to formally introduce myself. I hope you've heard a lot about me. I think you’ve probably seen the pictures on her walls from high school. For the past 4 years, I was you.
I was the best friend by her side each and every day.
I was there for her through those awkward years when she would get nervous to talk to boys. I watched her dreams come true when she got into her dream school.
I was there to hug her goodbye as tears streamed down our faces when she moved away. I was her best friend and I still am, but it's hard to be her best friend when we're hundreds of miles of way.
With that being said, I want to say thank you.
Thank you for taking care of her when she’s had too much to drink. She’s a wild one, as I’m sure you’ve found out by now. Thank you for making sure she gets home safely on those nights and for accompanying her to hangover breakfasts.
Thank you for being there to hug her when she gets her heart broken. Knowing that she is hurting when I am so far away pains me, but I find comfort in knowing that you're there for her.
Thank you for pushing her in her sport. While I know she loves what she does, she also doubts herself. Thank you for being her teammate that cheers her on when she succeeds and pulls her back up when she fails.
Above all else, thank you for loving her.
She's one of the most amazing people I've ever known. She loves everyone with her entire heart and is always willing to help others. She needs someone like you and I to love her in the same way.
While I miss her every day and count down the days until I see her again, I find peace in knowing that no matter what, you will be there for her.
Love, Her Other Best Friend
