Our Friendship Is Our Roots, but Our Love Is Our Future

“I just want you to know that you’re very special… and the only reason I’m telling you is that I don’t know if anyone else ever has.” ? Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

The thing I love most about us is that we’re not just in love with each other, but we’re each other’s best friend. And that’s one thing not every couple can attest to. 

Because being a best friend involves a lot more understanding and acceptance than just being ‘in love.’ It goes deeper than holding hands or showing up to places together.

Being best friends means we aren’t afraid to fight. We’ll poke and prod at each other and stay up till 3 am having the same argument over and over, but never give up on each other. We’ll be straight up with our feelings and never hesitate to tell each other the truth because that’s how you keep a friendship healthy and real. And we sure as hell call each other out on our bullshit and have no shame in being a little too blunt in our delivery.

Your friendship makes me a better person one day after another, and your love makes me never want to let you go. 

Because even in the heat of those arguments, I can feel our love shine through when you make sure I know it’s just a fight and we will get through this. Even when we’re at our worst, we’re always mindful of each other’s feelings and respect what we have as a relationship that we’re not going to let fall apart. 

Our friendship is our roots, but our love is our future. 

And truthfully, in your presence, I feel more whole than ever before. You complete me in ways I didn’t even know were possible.

I couldn’t imagine making decisions without your insight. Your opinion so stripped down and honest, means more to me than anyone else’s. When it comes to changes at work, family disputes, or financial issues, you’re the first person I ask and almost always the only person I listen to. I couldn’t imagine not having you there every step of the way. Honestly, I love you more than I knew I was capable of. 

They say that love is a sacrifice, but I didn’t know the truth behind those words until I met you. For the first time in my life, I have someone I would wholeheartedly sacrifice my own wants and needs for. It’s truly my utmost desire to take care of you and make you smile each and every day. Because rooted in my love for you is a friendship that is accepting of all your disappointments and imperfections, open to hearing you out and adoring your flaws. Friends don’t judge, they push you and help you become a better person. Friends have your best interests in mind and always catch each other before they fall, just like us. 

A love like ours, especially since we’re young, is so fun. We feel the heat but don’t feel like we are getting burned. We’ll fight with each other, but only because we’re fighting for each other. And at the end of the day, it’s about laughter and love and making each other happy. Our relationship is light and simple because that’s the way our friendship has felt since day 1. 

And when the complicated times come, and things get heavy, we’ll always have this foundation to keep us steady. When the fights get tougher, and the laughs feel few and far between, we’ll always know deep in our hearts this relationship is built to last and our love isn’t going anywhere but here. 

I am not just capable of loving you in your good times, but also in your bad times. My love for you truly knows no boundary.  You are an important part of me, the container of my happiness and I never ever want to lose you.

As The Perks Of Being A Wallflower famous quote states, we accept the kind of love we think we deserve. Because I think the kind of love that we let in our lives tends to change us; it defines us. 

And thus we become defined not only by the love that we receive but also by the love that we are willing to give.
