Uteruses before Duderuses… remember that!
So, your best friend’s got a new boyfriend, and it’s kind of wearing on your ego. I TOTALLY get it, it happens to the best of us.
When your BFF suddenly has someone ELSE to spend all their time with, you kind of feel like you’ve been put on the back burner. It sucks! No one wants to feel like they are losing a best friend.
You want to be happy for her, of course, but there’s that looming feeling that you will never compare to the closeness of her new relationship, and you find yourself feeling super resentful.
It can be SO easy to slip into being bitter about your BFF’s new love, but it will be so much better for your friendship if you show support for her new relationship.
She’s happy and that’s what’s most important, so don’t let it be about you! BUT, while being super supportive of her new boo, you can also remind her exactly why you two are BEST friends.
There’s no harm in a little reminder of all the times you’ve held her hair back while she was sick after a FEW too many drinks, or all the times you’ve been the shoulder she cried on or the person who took care of her when she was sick.
Don’t let someone new coming into her life overshadow the fact that you’ve been there for her through EVERYTHING.
You’re not competing with her new relationship, you’re just reminding her that you will ALWAYS be there, even if this new lover of hers is not.
“You will be too much for some people. Those aren’t your people.”
“Dear best friend, I don’t know how to thank you but I’m lucky to have you in my life.”
“The most memorable people in life will be the friends who loved you when you weren’t very loveable.”
“A good friend knows all your stories. A best friend helped you write them.”
“When worse comes to worst, squad comes first.”
“Friendship isn’t about who you’ve known the longest. It’s about who walked into your life, said ‘I’m here for you’ and proved it.”
“The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.” — Elizabeth Foley

“My best friends problems are my problems.”
“F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Fight for you. Respect you. Include you. Encourage you. Need you. Deserve you. Stand by you.”
“Girls can survive without a boyfriend, but they can’t survive without a best friend.”
