We’re best friends because you just get it. I don’t need to explain anything to you or worry if you’ll get the joke. You already got it and are on your way to making the next one.
We’re best friends because you love me even when I’m terrible. It’s easy to love someone when they’re doing well; it’s easy when they’re nothing but happiness and good vibes. The real challenge comes when everything is crap; you’re always there for me, even when I don’t deserve it.
We’re best friends because you never make me uncomfortable. I think about most of my friends and realize that they’ve made me feel weird at some point in our friendship. Whether it’s from an awkward silence or an off-color remark, I’ve felt unsure about them. Not you though, I always know that you’ll understand me and make me feel secure.
We’re best friends because we can go for long stretches of time without talking and it won’t damage the relationship. We always pick up where we left off.
We’re best friends because you don’t get resentful or jealous if I get into a relationship or land an amazing job. You’re always happy for me, you’re always supportive.
We’re best friends because you’re not afraid to call me out on my crap or disagree with me. I can’t get away with anything when I’m with you. You’ll tell me things that I need to hear but everyone else is too afraid to tell me. I am so lucky to have your honesty.
We’re best friends because you make me feel less alone in this messy, confusing world. It’s amazing how often you can feel disconnected from people. It’s amazing how many people can betray you, or fail to understand the words that are coming out of your mouth. When I see you, it’s a burst of reassurance that I’m not the only who looks at the world this way. There’s someone else. And that someone is you.
