Do you know why best friends are truly great for? Healing you. They are there, silent witness of your pain and they come to you from time to time, warning you about not falling in the wrong trap. I am talking about that kind of best friends that even though you might not talk to them for a while, they will still be right there. I am lucky enough to have a few myself. And I have no freaking idea where I would be if I didn’t have them. He is there for advice and even when I don’t listen to him and he doesn’t abandon me? He keeps supporting me during my hardships and is patient enough to keep coming back for me when I need him.
Guys… I just broke up with my girlfriend, nearly my wife. We started going through the marriage procedures but never fully finished them. Why? Because we were both unsure. For the most part of the relationship, my best friend kept warning me and pointing out red flags. But unfortunately love made me too blind to see them, despite my friend showing them with a banner. I would talk to him once a week, and sometimes, once a month. He never got upset. He kept his chill and kept telling me to be careful every single time that I met with him.
I am talking about a hell of a friend. Someone who stood by my side through thick and thin. Someone who did not stop being my friend even when I wronged him. Even right now, that I am grieving the loss of my relationship, I am at his house, with his request. He knows that this is a tough time for me and therefore he is willing to show support. And I just want to thank him from the bottom of my heart for being such a super awesome human being and caring so freaking much.
I mean damn, I reached a point where I was not caring for myself in that relationship. And he kept telling me that. He kept inviting me to his house and kept telling me to keep my eyes wide open and be a man about it. And now that my heart is broken, he is there to remind me that he told me so. A harsh critique. A truth seeker with no sign of remorse about lies and deceit. A caring human who is not afraid to hurt you with honesty just to try to save you.
Thanks man. Thank you brother. Thank you for being there for me. And thank you for still being here even right now that I feel at my lowest. I promise to make it up to you one day. I promise to be the friend that you always dreamed of. And I sincerely apologise for every time that I didn’t listen to your warnings. Thank you friend. You are the best thing that one can ever ask from the Universe as a Christmass present.
