Here’s To The Best Friends Who Are Here To Stay

I couldn’t care less about whether or not you like me.  I didn’t gravitate towards the likes of you, to be honest. But, although I haven’t said this earlier, I always wanted to get to know you.

One day, our paths crossed. As soon as I met you, I knew that you were far more than just pretty faces. You were pretty much like me- simple girls living simple lives, with simple struggles and ordinary dreams. You resembled the rest of us, except for the fact that friendship meant something more for you.  It didn’t mean going out or hanging out on a daily basis, but rather having each other`s backs and being there wherever it was needed.

At that moment, I knew that I want to belong. I immediately realized that I want it.  I knew that I do want to become your friend, and luckily, I did soon after.  I welcomed you into my life and you did the same right away.

We had lots of fun times, hadn’t we? As a matter of fact, we were having so much fun that many people were actually upset about it. They weren’t happy about it, at the very least.  They used to say that we aren’t good for each other.  They used to say that we shouldn’t be friends.  They desperately tried to keep us apart. ..But, luckily, we were too stubborn to listen!

Through the many years of our friendship, through the great times and the difficult times, through all the ups and downs, through success and failures, we were all there.  Through births,  tragic events, marriages, breakups, through each heartache and illness, we were there.  We were always there and always will be! No matter how much passes that we don’t hang out or talk to each other, no matter the distance between us, we are always there

I know you are here, and you know I am there.

At this point I can only say that I am more than glad that we didn’t listen. I am glad that we held to each other and stood firmly our ground. Many years have passed, but look at us. We still have each other`s back.  While countless friends come and go, you have taught me that best friends are here to stay for good, no matter what.

I could go on and on, but the truth is that best friends are something indescribable.  They are present regardless of the circumstance, with only good intentions and without any judgment. It is true that you can confide in best friends more than anyone else in this world, and you have proven this. Best friends know us better than we know ourselves, and I am more than glad that it is so.

“Good friends care for each other, close friends understand each other, but true friends stay forever…beyond words and beyond distance.” Thank you for being my true friends!
