 Dear friend,
 Thank you. I guess that’s how I really want to start this off (since this is a thank you letter to you). We have been through many things together and no matter what, you have never left my side. Through highs and lows I have never questioned where I stood in your life and that is something I am always grateful for.
 Going through the hardest time in my life has opened my eyes to the people that are going to be here for me in the long run, and I don’t think I would be able to go through this without you. I have come to realize that I don’t need anyone in my life who does not want to be here and I’ve finally been able to accept that thanks to you. You have taught me so much and I am so thankful for that. I am thankful for you. You are a constant in my life that I know will never change. You have dragged me out of my darkest place and made me realize how fun and great life is, even when you weren’t going through the easiest time either. I only hope I have been just as much as a rock for you as you have been to me.
 Thank you for picking me up when I start to doubt the future. Thank you for being my biggest supporter, even when I might not be making the best decisions. Thank you for believing in me and telling me I will survive. Thank you for laughing with me, crying with me, doing everything with me. Thank you for never leaving me. Most importantly, thank you for being my best friend.
