Whether it’s a parent, sibling, best friend or boyfriend, you have so many reasons to be thankful for those close to you in your life. From the little things to the big moments, they are always the first ones you call for advice, and the first ones you want to share your stories with. Although you may forget to say “thank you” as often as you should, take this time to think about everything they do for you. These three little words are the perfect way to express your gratitude.
1. I love you because you’re always down for a lazy night
Whether we’re eating our favourite snacks while watching movies we both love, or I’m forcing you to binge watch my new favourite Netflix series with me, you never say no to staying in with me.
2. I love you because you’re not afraid to tell me when I’m wrong
One of the most important things in any type of relationship is honesty, and you’re never afraid to be honest with me. I may not always want to hear the truth, but I know I can count on you to always keep it real. And that means a lot.
3. I love you because you constantly motivate me to be the best person I can be
From acing a test I thought I wouldn’t, to getting promoted at work, you make everything I accomplish—no matter how big or small—seem so important. You constantly motivate me to pursue my dreams and never give up.
4. I love you because you know exactly how to cheer me up
Whether it’s my ‘time of the month,’ or I’m just feeling down for no specific reason, you always know exactly what to do or say to make me smile. You’re one of a kind, and I’m very grateful for you.
5. I love you because you’re okay with looking silly with me
From the dozens of inside jokes we have, to our random laughing outbursts, I truly feel like I can be myself around you, and know that you’ll always accept me for who I am. I love that we can act totally weird together!
6. I love you because you always give the best advice
You always know the right things to do or say. Whether I’m calling you at 2 a.m. because I can’t sleep, or I just need your opinion on what to wear for a date, you always drop what you’re doing to help me during my time of need.
7. I love you because you never hesitate to lend me my favourite pieces of clothing from your closet
Even if it’s your favourite shoes or a dress you haven’t even worn yet, you trust me with your things and I’m thankful that you do. You teach me how to be a compassionate, giving person.
8. I love you because you’re willing to spend hours with me creeping my crush on every form of social media
Most people would get annoyed with my obsession with my crush, but you’re willing to spend a ton of time with me analyzing his social media accounts to see his cutest pictures and find out if there’s anything suspicious about him. After all, if someone is going to date me, they’re basically going to have to date you too since we’re always together!
9. I love you because you’re my #1 fan
Through both the good and bad days, you constantly remind me of how proud you are of me. I know I may not show you how thankful I am for your constant support, but I really am. You’re my personal cheerleader, and I hope I can motivate you as much as you motivate me.
10. I love you because I know I can trust you with anything
I’ve told you so many secrets throughout the years, and I know you won’t tell a soul. It’s rare to find people as trustworthy as you, and I’m so glad to have you in my life.
11. I love you because you’re thoughtful
From surprising me with my favourite Starbucks drink, to taking notes for me when I miss a class, I know I can count on you. I’m so lucky to have you in my life, and I should really tell you that more.
12. I love you because you’ve seen me in my worst moods, and you love me anyway
I’m so grateful to have someone who loves me at both my best and my worst. You’ve seen me go through some crazy mood swings, but you know not to give up on me, and I promise I won’t ever give up on you.
13. I love you because you put other people’s needs before your own
You’re so selfless, and you inspire me to be a more selfless person too. You’re a perfect role model of what I aspire to be, and I’m glad I have someone as amazing as you to look up to.
14. I love you because you’re my other half
I honestly couldn’t imagine my life without you. We’re a package deal and you complete me. We can do everything or nothing together and still have the greatest time. People like you are hard to find, but I’m glad we’ve found each other.
Hopefully you read this list thinking of the special people in your life, each of whom deserve a big “thank you” and “I love you” right now. Love is such an important part of your life, and of what we represent at Faze. Even when life seems it’s busiest, it’s important to show those you love how grateful you are to have them in your life, and tell them how much you appreciate them. They truly are your greatest blessings; they’ll always be there when you need them, and it’s worthwhile to show them how much you love them.
