Dear Best Friend,

We know that this world can be inhumane, but in a world that makes you feel selfish, I will remind you what it’s like to be selfless. I will remind you to give the world the best you have because the best will come back to you.

In a world that tries to make you feel ugly, I will remind you of your true beauty. I will remind you that your true beauty lies within and that your character, soul, confidence, and love are what make you the most beautiful.

In a world that tries to deceive you, I will show you my loyalty. I will show you that we are on the same team, whether we win or lose. I will show you that you can trust and have faith in me, and I won’t let you down.

In a world that makes you believe everyone is fake, I will be there to show you that I am genuine. I want what is best for you, even if that means that I have to tell you the bittersweet truth.

In a world that makes you feel not cared for, I will be there to show you that I care. I will be there to give you a hug and to listen, even if it’s hours on end.

In a world that makes you feel unhappy, I will be there to create happy moments with you and remind you of all the memories we have made and will continue to make.

In a world that makes you feel scared, I will be there to remind you that you are brave and that life is not an easy ride. I’ll remind you that time and time again, you continue to ride through the intricate and tangled webs of life with grace.

In a world that makes you feel crazy, I will make you feel sane. I won’t judge you based on your experiences, but rather applaud you for the mistakes you have made and will continue to make, for they are teaching us both life-long lessons.

In a world that tries to make you feel like a failure, I will remind you of your accomplishments and aspirations. I will remind you constantly that it takes your courage and strength to get to where you are right now, and I’ll push you to never give up. I’m here to cheer you on all the way.

In a world that is so dark, I will be your light. I will remind you that if you expect the worst, the worst will happen. You are your own stress, sadness, and frustration. Life is not easy, but your optimism will get you a long way.

In a world that tries to make you feel unloved, I will love you with all my heart. I will love you when you’re angry, irritated, frustrated, lost, scared, and confused. I will love all of you and remind you of all the reasons to love yourself.

You are everything and mean the world to me.

So, in a world that proves you right, I will prove you wrong.

In a world that makes you feel alone, I will be by your side, always.

Love, Your Best Friend
