By now you should know, you’re one of the most important and closest people in my life. There have been days when I haven’t felt like my best self, but in spite of you knowing that, you’ve always been my pillar of strength. Just how you’re always looking out for me, I would like to do the same for you. Come what may, I will always have your back these 7 times.
Your BFF For Life!
1. When The Truth Is Ugly
If you're embarrassed and worried about how others would judge you if you told a soul about your recent confessions, let me tell you that you don’t have to beat yourself up over it. Each of us makes mistakes. It’s only human, at the end of the day. I’ll not only be your shoulder to cry on, but I’ll also help you to get over it. What’s done is done, and it should be dusted at the earliest. It’s time to smile again, babe!
2. When Everyone Is Against Your Opinion
You’ve always had a strong mind. The kind of woman to go ahead and chase her dreams no matter what life throws at her. I also know that not everyone likes this about you, but I always have. I’ll be there with you at every step. While you’re morphing your dreams into reality one day at the time. Let me remind you that you can count on me for anything and I will be there. I’m here to stay and you have my word on that one.
3. When You Need To Move On From Your Ex
I know how much you loved him, and to be honest, he didn’t deserve you one bit. You need a man who knows how to treat you right. The kind of guy who will give his whole heart to you and make you feel like a princess every possible way. Till you find that guy, you have me. I’ll do whatever it takes to make you forget him. I’ll crack cheesy jokes, take you out shopping, treat you to your favourite dessert and tell you that you deserve so much better, every single day, till it sinks in.
4. When Someone Hurts You
I may not know them personally, but no one, I mean NO ONE, does bad things to my best friend and gets away with it. They would have to go through me first before they even think of doing such a thing. You are important to me and you’re worth taking the bullet for.
5. When You Get Grounded By Your Parents
Sneaking out of your house post 1 am is not something I would support you on, but because you’re my bestie, I would do my best to convince your parents to put this whole situation behind them. We’ll get through this together, you mark my words! Even If I’m required to speak to your parents every day and cover for you, I’ll do it. That’s what friends are for, right?
6. When You Have A Bad Day At Work
Whether your boss gave you a hard time at work or you just had a tiff with your colleague, I’ll be there to cheer up. You can tell me everything about how your day went, and even though I may partially agree with your boss, YOU have my full support.
7. When You Want To Try Something New
You want to move to a new city? Get a new job? Take on a new course? No worries, you have my vote! I support you in everything you do, and I want all the people in your life too to respect your choices. I have your back on this one. I want you to grow, explore and see all the wonderful things the world has to offer. No one should come in between what you do unless you think that’s not what you want. I’ve got you, buddy!
