Letter to The Besties

Day 3 Open Letter Challenge: a letter for each of my three best friends.

Dear #1,

I haven’t known you very long. We met at camp a summer ago, and though it took a while for us to get to know each other, you have been one of my greatest friends ever since.

You are the person I can tell all my deepest secrets to because my secrets are your secrets too. It’s crazy how similar we are in so many ways. Knowing you exist is my constant reminder than I am not alone in this world.

I feel comfortable with you, with your family and friends. I don’t have to worry when I’m around you. You’re one of those rare people who is able to put me completely at ease with just your presence.

I cherish the time we spend together. You have given me so many experiences I will remember for the rest of my life. I spent my twenty-first birthday with you, and you made me my first drink. Two months later, you took me on a roadtrip to the Grand Canyon for your birthday. Through a mutual friend, I was able to find my current job, probably the best job ever (besides being a writer, of course). You have changed my life so much in all the very best ways.

We were supposed to move in together this summer, to our mutually favorite city, but the circumstances didn’t work out. Any other friend would have drifted with the distance, but not you. You have remained my best friend no matter how much time and distance comes between us.

I hope you know how much I love you, how much I cherish our friendship. You are the most beautiful person I know, and I am so blessed to have you in my life. I hope our friendship lasts through the years, and I look forward to joining you in the great city as soon as I can!



Dear #2,

You are my sunshine on a rainy day. You have been from the day we met, when you boldly introduced yourself to me on the first day of journalism class my sophomore year of high school. It was my first day at a new school, and I was scared out of my mind, but you put me right at ease.

Nobody makes me laugh like you do. Seriously, you make me feel like the happiest girl on the planet whenever I’m with you.

We share the same music taste, and I consider you my music guru. Every artist I ever have an obsession with is credited to you because I probably wouldn’t have ever heard of half the bands on my playlist without you. Ditto with my Netflix queue.

You share much of my passions, and let me know whenever I’m being too intense. You’re honest with me, even when I wish you wouldn’t be, because you trust me with the truth wholeheartedly. I can be myself with you, and maybe you’ll judge me, but I trust your judgement. :p

You stick up for me. I know I can count on you to have my back. Or if I’m the one in the wrong, I know you’ll be there to put things in perspective and get me to apologize. You make me a better person, a happier person, and I love you unconditionally to the stars and back.

For a good part of the six years we’ve been friends, we were pretty terrible at keeping in touch, but we always reconnected eventually as if no time had passed at all. You’ve been in my heart, thoughts, and prayers since we met, and I believe you always will be.

To you, I wish the greatest abundance of happiness, a life filled with all the love and laughter you bring to the world. You deserve nothing less.



Dear #3,

My love for you is stronger than anything I have ever felt before. There is literally nothing I wouldn’t do for you. If you asked me to give you the world, I would find a way to do just that. Your happiness is mine.

You were the mirror to my soul before we even met. Together, we reflect the deepest pieces of ourselves, showing each other who we are and where we still have room to grow. I remember passing you in the band hall every morning during my sophomore year of high school, wanting to know you. When we finally met through a mutual friend, I was surprised to learn that you had been wanting to know me too. 

Ours was an instantly deep friendship. You became one of my best friends like you had already been one all along.

Our friendship has lasted almost six years now. During this time, you have remained one of my closest and truest friends, despite all the life circumstances that could have torn us apart. You have been there for me more than any other person I know, and for that I will be eternally grateful to have you in my life.

We definitely have our differences. I’m expressive and intense where you are rational and peaceful. We have gone down different paths more than once, but somehow we seem to end up in the same destination anyway.

I don’t think you understand how important you are to me. I barely understand it myself. But I know I’d be lost without you in my life, and I’m glad I can still consider you one of my best friends after all this time.

I love you with every piece of my heart, and I look forward to continuing to grow with you. Who else is going to show me how?



All three of you are the very best, and I love you all so much! To infinity and beyond <3
