A Thank-You Letter To The Friends Who Will Always Be A Part Of My Life


Dear friends who will always be a part of my life – THANK YOU.

Thank you for being my friends. Thank you for showing me what genuine, deep, lifelong friendship is.

Thank you for always being here for me. For being patient, compassionate, and selfless. For attentively listening to me every time I vented about my problems.

Thank you for staying by my side on my best days and my worst days. For celebrating with me my achievements and successes, but also for not leaving me to deal with my problems on my own.

Thank you for sticking with me through thick and thin.

Thank you for always doing your best to help me ease my worries and make me feel better when I felt upset, confused, and lost.

Thank you for always being my greatest help and support. My cheerleader. My strength. My guiding light. My inspiration. My hope.

Thank you for never turning your back on me. For never letting me down.

Thank you for picking me up when life knocked me down. For believing in me, reminding me of my strength, and encouraging me to move forward when I felt like I could not do that on my own.

Thank you for always being honest with me. For telling me the truth even when it was too cruel and painful and even when I didn’t want to hear it.

Thank you for always having my back. For never letting anyone criticize me or make fun of me in your presence. For letting me know which of the people in my life truly love me and care about me and which of them are only trying to take advantage of me.

Thank you for making my life happy, enjoyable, and exciting. For all the fun, jokes, and laugh. For all the warm, sweet, precious memories that flood back to me whenever I think of the time we spent together.

Thank you for laughing with me every time I said or did something silly in public so that I wouldn’t be the only one feeling embarrassed.

Thank you for always helping me make wise decisions and choices. Thank you for openly telling me when I was making mistakes.

Thank you for accepting me and loving me the way I am. For knowing and accepting all of my annoying habits and whims. For tolerating my frequent mood swings and drama scenes. For being patient and tolerant every time I got cranky, needy, or simply unbearable.

Thank you for being aware of my bad, dark side and not making me feel ashamed of it. For helping me overcome my insecurities and fears. For inspiring me to love and respect myself with all my weaknesses and imperfections.

Thank you for inspiring me to grow. For encouraging me to read, travel, and learn more. For encouraging me to leave my comfort zone and do things I never thought I would. For helping me overcome the fear of the unknown.

Thank you for believing in my qualities and strength. For encouraging me to set high goals. For encouraging me to never stop dreaming. For making sure I never forget my worth. 

Thank you for inspiring me to do better and be better.

Thank you for the sense of fulfillment you’ve given me – the kind of fulfillment which comes from knowing that you are loved and respected; from knowing that you’ll never have to feel alone and that there’s someone else around you that understands you and connects with you on all levels.

Thank you for choosing me to be your friend, for loving me dearly, unconditionally, and selflessly, and for always being here for me.

Thank you for shaping me into the person I am today.

Thank you for making my life easier, happier, and better.

Thank you for being a part of my life and know that you’ll always be a part of it.
