Happy Gal-entine’s Day!
Who is your best friend? Is it someone you’ve known since elementary school, or did you meet them at your local coffee shop?
Whatever the case may be, there is no doubt that our best friends hold a special place in our hearts and lives. They are the ones we run to when trouble arises and the ones we celebrate our victories with.
True friends stand by your side each and every step of the way, so what better day to show your friends a little love on Valentine’s Day than with the best friendship quotes?
Valentine’s Day celebrates the love shared between couples around the world. However, this celebration should not only be for couples. Friendships also share a beautiful love that deserves to be recognized — not only on Valentine’s Day but every day!
Maybe you and your best friend don’t speak as often as you’d like because of your conflicting schedules. Nonetheless, you know this person will always be your go-to when there are new stories to be told.
When was the last time you said, “I love you” to any of your friends? The stigma around expressing your feeling towards anyone other than your family or significant other needs to end here!
Friends are the people who see past your flaws and accept that you too are only human. Both of you, or all of you (depending on the size of your group), are all navigating your way through life. Sometimes, our families and significant others don’t see how hard we’ve been trying in school, work or holding together our household. There are certain things you wish to say but fear that judgment might be cast upon you. This is not the case with your best friend(s).
If you can’t go to them in time of conflict to get the absolute best advice, no matter how straightforward it might be, then you might want to reconsider who you call your friend. In the words of our girl Eleven, “Friends don’t lie.”
So to help you celebrate with your best friends and show them how much you really do care, send your BFF some of these cute love quotes for friends on Valentine’s Day:
