What You Should Tell Your Best Friend More Often
I love my best friend more than most things in my life. Sometimes I wonder though if I tell her how much I love her enough. Brit.Co explains that there are things we can say to our best friends to remind them just how much we really care about them.
- "You're really great at ... have I told you that before?" If your best friend loves to knit or draw or sing, remind them that you appreciate this talent that they have. A compliment that's so specific as that will mean so much more than just a generic compliment about them.
- "Let's do whatever you want to do tonight!" Without complaining or compromising, set aside a night to do whatever your best friend wants to do. Whether that's seeing a movie that you normally wouldn't see, or trying a new restaurant that you have overlooked in the past. See where the night takes you!
- "I'm really grateful that we met." Try to remind your best friend why they're your best friend, and what you appreciate about them the most. Just like a romantic relationship, it's easy to get complacent in a platonic relationship, so remind yourself and your best friend what makes them great and what makes your friendship so special.
Friends are the family that you choose. So it's always good to appreciate your friends as much as you can, and tell them that you love them as often as you can.
