The occasional fight can strengthen a friendship, but that can get in the way of your birthday message. The key is to acknowledge the tension between you and your friend without dragging the fight back up. Tell your friend how much they mean to you, and your hope that you can overcome your disagreement.

It's another year, and though we've grown apart, I still think of you all the time. You're as bold and inspiring as the day we met. I hope you have an incredible day and year, wherever your life leads you.

Although we haven't talked in a long time, I think of you often. Today's your birthday, and I'm remembering all the good memories we've shared. Wishing you all the best!

We've been like oil and water lately, but I love you like a [brother/sister]. You mean so much to me. I hope you have an incredible day today!

I know I don't say it enough, but your friendship is the best gift I could ask for. Together, we'll get through the tough times. Happy Birthday!

You've always been a true friend, even when things get dark. I value your strength and honesty, and I wouldn't change any of it for the world. Happy Birthday, and I hope you find what you're looking for this year.

Even though we haven't been seeing eye to eye lately, you can call on me whenever you need. I hope you have a wonderful birthday and your year is off to a bright start.

On your special day, let's forget all those things we said. It's water under the bridge. Tonight I just want to party with you until the sun comes up.
