Adorable Thank You Messages for Friends
People come and go like the waves in the ocean. But true friends stick around whether you like it or not. Just like an octopus on your face or a jellyfish on your leg. Thank you for being the octopus and jellyfish in my life. Thank you for sticking it out with me in calm seas and turbulent waters.
When friends are real, they will stick with you come hell or high water. They will help you figure out what to do so that you can get through your difficult phase.
They will lend you money if you need financial help and they will buy you gifts on special occasions. They will stand up for you when someone’s giving you a hard time.
Most importantly, they will not go away even if you push them away or tell them to leave you alone.
When you don’t need to be careful about what you say, that’s when you know you’ve found your very best friends. Thank you for letting me speak my mind without judging me or disowning me as your friend.
You can speak your mind when you’re around them, no filter, and no holds barred. You can be completely honest with them and not fear that they will be turned off by your words or your points of view.
Best friends love you for who you are, foul mouth and all.
They will not blab on you or make you look bad in front of others. They will protect you and correct you when you say something inappropriate, but they will not hold it against you.
To all my friends who love and care for me, thank you for bringing sunshine into my life.
True friends have a way for bringing laughter, happiness, and color into your life. When you are surrounded by true friends, everything feels safer, more peaceful, and more interesting.
Boring things stop being boring when friends are around. They show you a different way of looking at life, and that makes it more intriguing and entertaining.
There are people who will come into your life and make you live a little bit crazier, laugh a little louder, and smile a little wider. You are that person in mine. Thank you for making my life so much interesting and so much happier. I wouldn’t trade you for anyone else.
The best kind of friends are the ones who make you laugh the loudest at the most random times and places. They put a smile on your face with just a word, a gesture, or a facial expression.
They challenge you to do things that scare you, and they will never stop until you give in. These are the kind of friends that make life an adventure.
You are the kind of friend who makes the good times even better and the hard times a whole lot easier. Thank you for staying by my side when I was figuring out what to do with my life. I don’t know what I would’ve done without you.
Best friends are there in your life for a reason.
They will help you through the dark and tough times, and they will help you celebrate your happy moments.
When you have a friend that does all these things for you, never let them go. They are your life’s blessing.
Examples of Sweet Thank You Messages for Friends
I never would’ve guessed that my life would be this way now. I think it has a lot to do with you being my friend. Thank you for all that you do for me. You truly are one of my life’s biggest blessings.
A friend can truly turn your world around. They can get you out of the slump you’re in and challenge you to take on something that’s always scared you.
That’s because good friends make each other feel braver. And sometimes, they just become brave for a friend who’s feeling scared.
A good friend will hold your hand and guide your way until you can make it on your own. They will help you figure out the right path for you and help you prepare for your journey.
They will watch you go on your way and will reassure you that you will still have them when you decide to go back.
I’m not even worried that I don’t have a lot of friends. As long as I have a handful that’s true to me, that’s all I’ll ever need. Thank you for being one of the few but genuine friends I have!
Who really needs 2,000 friends on Facebook when all you need is a best friend?
Those people don’t count when you cannot call them in the middle of the night because you’re scared of the sound you heard downstairs and you want them to call the police for you.
Those people don’t count if they haven’t seen you without make-up on. They don’t count if they have never hung out with you in your sweats and with your three-day-old hair.
They don’t count if they haven’t seen you at your lowest.
Thank you for being my friend through crazy mood swings, bad hair days, and PMS. I love you and I wouldn’t trade you for a guy who experiences none of these things.
There’s a lot that goes down between friends who have stood the test of time. Friendships will not always be pretty and happy, nor will they be peaceful and steady.
But true friends will weather the storms together and wait for things to settle down. They will do what needs to be done to set the record straight, and then they just go back to being friends again. That’s just how it is with friends.
This may sound weird, but I don’t really know what lonely or miserable or alone feels like. I’ve always had you by my side, and I sailed through the bad parts of my life with you, so I don’t know how lonely feels like. Thank you for making sure I’m always happy and okay!
Be thankful if you have a friend who has been with you through the ups and downs of your life and shielded you from the worst of it. Those kinds of friends are rare.
When you find one, cherish them and tell them how much you love them. Friends like them will always have your back, and they will always answer the call when you are in need.
I look back in my life and realize that some of the best memories I have are the simple moments I shared with good friends. Thank you for being present in all those moments. I cherish every one of them.
The best memories are always the ones that happen out of the blue. Spur of the moment is the best kind of moments with friends because there are no plans, no expectations, and no rush.
Everyone is just being themselves, caught in the moment, and living in the moment.
Examples of Heartfelt Thank You Messages for Friends
Thank you for our late-night phone conversations and texts. Thank you for always being brutally honest, and for not judging me for my lapses in judgment.
Real friends don’t abandon you when you’re making a mess of your life. They will allow you to make a suitable amount of mess, and then they will step in to do an intervention.
They will always be available to talk about everything, anything, and nothing, but they will not sugarcoat things that you need to know. Tough love is what you can get, but that’s just what real friends do.
I think we’ve been through everything together. Still we’re friends, even if life is always changing and time is always flying past. You are my constant and my rock. Thank you for never leaving.
Friends will go through different changes with you. They will be there to witness different milestones, and they will be there to celebrate different accomplishments and successes.
It will feel like a whole lifetime has just passed by, and you will wonder where all the years went. But this is just how it is with friends. Like what they all say, time flies when you’re having fun.
In life, nothing ever fazes me because I know I can always count on you to pull me through. Thank you for being such a wonderful friend to me. You know that you can always count on me when it’s your time to get in trouble.
Good friends bail each other out of trouble. They will stand up for each other and not leave the other hanging out to dry.
When friends are going through tough times, friends will do their best to make things better.
They will find ways to make things work, and they will help each other out until the problem goes away for good. Friends simply don’t leave any friend behind!
The best thing about being friends with someone like you is that I always have great times to look forward to. It’s because of you that life is always a party! Thank you for being such a colorful part of my life.
Friends simply make life so much happier. Parties are always more happening, road trips are always more exciting, and holiday celebrations are always more special with friends around.
Just the thought of spending time with a friend is enough to lift your spirits, even it’s just for a quick run, or even for just a cup of coffee.
The way you help me with my problems and give life advice makes me think that you are Confucius in your previous life. Thank you for not growing tired of listening to my woes and figuring out solutions to my problems.
Good friends never get sick of your drama.
Your drama simply becomes their drama, too. Even if it’s the same thing over and over, good friends will not force you to do anything that you’re not ready to do.
They will be there for you to help you become stronger and braver so that you will be able to do the right thing. But they will not force a decision on you, or judge you for being afraid.
They will give you what you need until you’re ready to do something!
Thank you for being the most significant of all my others, for being my wing-woman, and for being my fiercest protector. You don’t let me make stupid mistakes, but you say yes once in a while so that I would learn my lesson. That’s why I love you, and I thank you for being just the kind of best friend that I need.
They will always be by your side with every decision, with every celebration, with every accomplishment, and with every life struggle.
They may not always have the wisest words to share or the best solutions to your problems, but they will be with you to give any kind of support.
When nothing seems to be working, a good friend will sit beside you and give you the moral support that you need.
Perfect Thank You Messages for Friends
Sometimes I feel like you do things that you don’t always do just to make happy and just to make me feel comfortable. You don’t have to, but you still do. I’m grateful for having such an unselfish friend like you.
I know you are pretty amazing. But when I witness it firsthand, it still leaves me dumbfounded sometimes. I’m so proud that you are my friend.
We may be as similar as day and night, but this never really bothered us. We never really felt the need to be more like each other because it’s the fact that we’re so different that makes us so close. We don’t need to change anything about us. We simply inspire each other to become the best versions of ourselves. Thank you for being such a terrific friend!
Friendships teach us so many things about life. They show us love, kindness, compassion, generosity, and encouragement. You have given me so much and taught me a whole lot more. Thank you for being such a great friend!
You are the first person on my speed dial. I can send you a message any time of the day and you will always have a reaction. You can make me laugh when I’m feeling a wave of self-pity or when I’m feeling sad. You can tell me something hilarious and all my worries will simply disappear. You are the one friend that I cannot ever live without. Thank you for being in my life.
When it comes to you, I’m not afraid to be my most honest, my most real, and my most vulnerable. You make me feel secure because you are always understanding and never judgmental. I love you and I’m grateful for you!
There was a time when I just gave up on people because of their ulterior motives. People that I thought were friends were only thinking about what they can get from me and what I can help them with. But with you, it’s different. You are genuinely concerned about my welfare and what you can do to make me happy. You are a breath of fresh air. Thank you for being such a wonderful friend to me.
It’s always a good time whenever I’m with you. Even if we don’t have money or grand plans or fantastic trips, we always have a great time together. We truly know how to have fun! Thank you for the gift of friendship.
There’s simply no dull moment whenever we’re together. We may not accomplish a lot of things and waste a whole day away just like that, but we really have a lot of fun. That’s fine by me!
The more I get to know you, the more I’m convinced that you will be my friend for a long, long time. Possibly even longer than my relationship with my husband! Thank you for being such a great presence in my life.
How I wish I could make you even half as happy as you make me. But I don’t have your natural sense of humor, so let me just be your audience who laughs hysterically at your jokes. Thank you for adding so much color and laughter to my days.
You are the friend that’s like family to me. Wherever I may go and whatever I may do, you will always have a special place in my life. Thanks for being so wonderful.
We have grown so much together in both the physical and literal sense. I just know that you will be the kind of friend who will help me pull up my jeans when I no longer can. I love you!
I run this blog to bring light and joy to people across the world. When I am not coming up with new wishes and quotes I enjoy walking my dog with my husband Max and I also sing in our local gospel choir. If you like my website the best compliment you can give me is to share it with your friends and family. Thanks so much for reading, sharing, tweeting and pinning all my work! Susan xx
