Wait for the friend who pushes you, who would never let you settle. Wait for the friend who sees you, and all your potential. “You got this.” Who would never let you slack on your talents.
Wait for the friend who you can be completely yourself around. Someone who brings out your weirdest, most uninhibited self - laughing until you cry, laughter 8-packs, nights that make you feel alive. Waking up in the morning, hair all crazy, makeup smudged, and feeling like you can say anything and just be you.
Wait for the friend who’s imperfect, because perfection is boring, but who never stops trying - texts checking in after your date, buying you a drink just because, never forgetting what you love, what you can’t stand, what moves you.
Wait for the friend who you can trust. Who you can pour your heart out to about who broke your heart and those moments that left a few scars that might never heal.
Wait for the friend who loves you. And not just when you’re both drunk at the bar, but the kind of love that lasts far after that moment has passed, the kind of love that makes their heart ache when they see you in pain, the kind of love that is there even after your worst fight, because you can be mad at someone but still have mad love for them.
The kind of love that loves your scars and makes you realize that the most interesting people have marks. The kind of love that makes every shitty situation better because you have someone in this world that understands and supports you.
The kind of love that makes you realize that you can do anything.
Wait for the friend who listens to you for hours but would never let you self-deprecate. They’ll tell you when you’re being a whiny bitch, needed to shut the hell up, and move on. And you become better because of it.
Wait for the friend who never gives up on you - they tear down your walls, they take the time to get through all your layers, even when there seems to be a million of them.
Wait for the friend who you never have to tip-toe around. Who you can tell them the things that they probably don’t want to hear, but 100 percent need to, and vice versa. Wait for the friend who gives them a chance, but when they see you unhappy and your light dimming they slap you awake. “You deserve better.” Someone who feels your pain and would do anything to help you leave.
Wait for the friend who you know will always be there. Who will go with you anywhere unconditionally. They’ll literally dance with you on the street next to that dumpster, they’ll make a trip to the grocery store fun.
Wait for the friend who’s your soulmate. Who knows the meaning of friendship and the value of you. And when you find them, you’ll understand why it's so important to let the people go who no longer lift you up. You'll realize why it’s so important to leave your life and heart open for someone who deserves you.
