Letter to a Best Friend – A Sample letter to my best Friend

What is a Letter to a best friend?

Sure, it’s the 21st century but writing letters is still a thing – and if you’re thinking about writing one you are not alone. A letter to a best friend is simply a written form of communication from you to the friend that you consider closest to you in friendship.

Whether it’s for the gentle joy of reminding someone that you are grateful to have them in your life – or it’s for a much more elaborate purpose, writing letters have always proven to be an effective means of communicating emotion, not to mention – psychologists suggest that it is therapeutic and an easy way to ease stress and give relief to tumultuous experiences.

Components of a letter to a best friend

There needn’t be too much formality given to a letter of this nature; typically, a lot of emphases is given to standard  letter structures, with suggestions that a good letter must be split into three sections, be addressed with regard to the recipient office or authority and be written in precisely universally accepted  language (excluding slang), and while these aren’t invalid in writing informal letters, the most important key (especially in writing a letter to a friend) would be to find your voice and speak from your heart – ultimately, everything else will take shape.

Dear Maya,

I often marvel at how incredibly lucky I am that you are part of my life –  I know we have known each other a while and yet, I seem unable to get accustomed to the fact that we are, and have stayed friends for so long, surmounting daunting hurdles and beating the odds that life presents at such short intervals.

Thank you for choosing to be my friend. I know that love is deliberate and not merely the output of coincidence, I know that on the day when you first walked into class on the first day of school in 5th grade, that I wasn’t merely a choice of chance, because I have seen incredible people come and go in both our lives and I know you choose to stay – regardless of all my whims and caprices.

I choose you too – to stay with you throughout the length of our lives and love you, at your best and worst, in mine as well – when convenient and when not convenient, and to fight to guard the precious gift that is our friendship for as long as we both walk this side of eternity.

I hope to see you soon; I miss you – June cannot come soon enough.

Love,

Greta.
