While I might not always say it, you are extremely important to me. Sure, we have had ups and downs but you’ve always remained by my side.
This decade has been a bit crazy and I know at times you wanted to cut ties with me but chose not to. We have grown together and achieved so much. The more time I spend with you the more I realize just how little I could have accomplished without you in my life. You have believed in me every step of the way and pushed me to become the person I am now.
As we move forth into 2020 I can only hope that we remain as we are in one another’s lives and that I can help you in all the ways you have helped me. Seeing you progress as you have truly has been a treat and I would not trade our time together for the world. Thank you for coming into my life when you did and thank you for getting me through some of the worst points in my life.
Without you, I do not know where I would be or who I would be, at that. You are and always will be a huge part of who I am in this moment and for that, I am so much more grateful than I could ever find the words to say. When we first found one another I had no idea the impact you would have on me but looking back now it should have been quite apparent.
You are one of the only people I can trust with all of my struggles. When I am wrong or really messing up you make sure to call me out. You are not afraid to stand up to me when my head gets too big and you always ground me out in the best possible ways. Moving through this life with you has been quite the journey but one well worth taking.
I will forever be appreciative for the nights where I thought I was falling apart when you went out of your way to make me laugh so hard that the reason for my tears shifted. You heard me out when no one else would and where there when so many people jumped ship and refused to stand by my side. You made the hard times easier on me and you made the good times so much better.
I would not change anything and I would do it all over again if I could. While you might not understand or completely see the impact you have had on my life, I will forever be in your debt as a result. If you ever need me I will be there and I can only hope to repay the kindness you have showed me in the years to come.
Thank you so much for being a part of my life and binge-watching sitcoms with me when I was going through breakups. Thank you for dragging me out of bed and helping me get back on my feet when I felt like giving up on everything. While we are nowhere near the same person our souls are forever connected.
You have been an amazing friend to me and showed me what true friendship really is. I have never experienced this kind of thing before and even though we have our differences I feel like our friendship will truly last a lifetime. No matter how much we have grown over the past decade, you have made sure to reach out and keep up with me.
At times we did seem a bit distant from one another but that all changed once we were able to see one another. You always paid attention to the small things and were always willing to go the extra mile for me. While 10 years might not sound like a lot we have made so many memories over that period that it feeling like six lives over.
I do not know what I would do without you and I cannot wait to spend the coming decade with you. No matter what happens please know that I appreciate you more than you will ever know. Here’s to ten more years and so many after that – I am sure at some point we will lose count.
