Dear Best Friend

Dear friend,

 

Thank you for being my friend

Thank you for making depression jokes to get through the pain

Thank you for talking to me about suicide but never doing it

Thank you for telling me your sad and telling me when you’re not

Thank you for giving me a hug when I need it and even when I don’t

Thank you for understanding my anxiety

Thank you for sharing your story even when I guard mine

Thank you for remembering the stories I do tell and keeping them between us

Thank you for calling our sick days’ days that we were home because we died

Thank you for all the inside jokes

Thank you for being by my side through our individual roller coasters of depression and anxiety

Thank you for being my best friend
