My one best friend in the whole world. She is the best person ever but she gets into trouble and goes through hard times like all of us. I remember a year or so ago we were both depressed deeply. I would plaster a smile and act like I was fine to try to cheer her up. She knew it and forced herself to get better because I had tried so hard without thinking about myself. When she found out, it was almost too late and I had planned on ending everything. She talked me out of it and any signs of her past depression gone. She just wanted her friend back. She inspires me to be better than I ever was. She tried so hard for me as I once did for her and ripped herself the rest of the way out of the hole that had threatened to swallow her up before and she pulled me out with her. I love her dearly.
